It is important that all school uniform is clearly labelled with your child’s name, so that lost items can be identified.

Children have the option to wear what is most often referred to as a ‘summer uniform' from after the Easter break until before the October half term.

No jewellery is permitted except a simple wrist watch and small stud earrings.

Long hair must be tied back at all times.  Hair bands etc. should be functional not decorative.

This set of requirements has been put together as a result of lengthy consideration of the consultation with parents, children and staff.  In addition, governors gave much consideration to making sure that the proposal meets the needs of any individual pupil to accommodate their religion or belief, ethnicity, or disability and that it meets with the guidance published by the Department for Education.
