Uniform & PE Kits


We have been giving lots of consideration to whether children should continue to come into school on their PE days in their PE kits or come in uniform and change just for the session. We have asked the opinion of some parents and also asked the staff. We have decided that the children can continue to come into school on their PE days in their PE kits.


However, one of the reasons we considered moving back to uniform is because there is so much inconsistency in the PE kits and the children don’t always demonstrate the neatness and pride we expect when they are in their PE uniform. Please ensure that on your child’s PE days that they come in a plain white T shirt and plain black shorts or joggers. Children who do not come into school in the correct PE kit will be given spare items of clothing and asked to change at the start of the day.


We will continue to review the policy of children coming into school in PE kits throughout the year and if we are not able to achieve consistency in terms of all children wearing the correct kit, we will have to reconsider this.


In terms of our usual school uniform, as we often continue to have good weather in the first half of the Autumn term, children are welcome to wear their Summer uniform until October half term if they wish to.


Please be reminded that accessories must be kept to a minimum and should be in school colours of blue or grey. In terms of jewellery, only items of religious significance such as a bracelet/bangle, stud earrings and a watch are allowed for safety reasons.
