School Uniform


It is the policy of the school that school uniform should be worn by all children.  The wearing of school uniform has a very positive effect not only with regard to ethos but to standards of discipline and on children’s self esteem.  The uniform helps define our school community, as well as instilling a sense of pride in the children and the staff.  If a child is proud to wear our uniform, we are proud of the child.  The co-operation of parents is greatly appreciated in this respect.

The uniform consists of:

 For boys:  For girls:
 grey trousers grey skirt / pinafore / trousers 
 light blue shirt light blue blouse 
 maroon pullover maroon pullover / cardigan
 or school sweatshirt  or school sweatshirt

 
Maroon fleeces and polo shirts are also available from suppliers.
