We have a school uniform which children are required to wear. We believe this fosters a feeling of school identity and promotes a sense of pride in being part of the school community – all school uniform, must be named.

Our uniform is stocked at:

Make Up
  • Make up, including nail polish, should not be worn in school

If your child has pierced ears they may wear one small single pair of studs. No other jewellery is permitted.  Children MUST be able to remove earrings in order to take part in PE.  Staff are not permitted to remove earrings and the school is unable to take responsibility for any jewellery that is lost. 

If you intend to have your child’s ears pierced, please be aware that unless they can remove the earrings for PE or swimming themselves, they will not be able to take part in sessions.  For safety reasons we do not allow taped up earrings in our school.  The best time to have this done is at the start of the Summer holidays so they are healed by the time the children return in September.


Book bags and PE bags are available through Gray Palmer. These are not compulsory, but are recommended for Reception to Y2 as we know that these book bags will fit into the children’s drawers at school.
