 (N) Not supplied by the School Shop       (TBC) To be confirmed

It is very important to be able to identify items of kit and for kit to be returned to its rightful owner if lost.  Therefore, please sew name tapes Into everything! 

Please note: Trainers must be proper “sports” trainers with laces tied properly at all times - NOT fashion trainers i.e. skateboard trainers or plimsoll pumps or Airforce 1 Trainers – they do not provide the adequate protection or cushioning needed for sports activities.

Students will not be allowed to wear their school shoes for PE lessons.


Value for money

With no blazer, shirts or a tie as part of our uniform, we consider the cost to families to be reasonable as there are fewer items to purchase than with uniforms incorporating a blazer, and the sweatshirt represents a much cheaper alternative to a blazer.

No student is required to wear the suggested skirt and can wear the unbranded trousers instead, which are generic and can be bought cheaply from supermarkets and other lower cost outlets.

The school maintains a stock and regularly provides uniform for families in financial hardship, particularly those students qualifying for the pupil premium.

We also offer second hand uniform through the PTA uniform shop. Details of this are on the school Facebook page and there is a link on the school website under transition information. Alternatively, the PTA can be contacted via the following email: 

Information for parents

Student appearance and uniform expectations are outlined in the behaviour and rewards policy and the transition information booklet on the school website, along with a link to the online uniform shop.

Considerations: To comply more fully with recent guidelines the MAT/school should consider the following:

  • Engage even more regularly with existing suppliers on availability of quality cheaper uniform options; this currently happens annually
  • Identify those garments that do not need a school logo, for example the tracksuit top and microfleece, PE shorts and football/PE socks
