Mapac can supply all the items of clothing listed in our school uniform policy below:

School Uniform Policy

Although there is no compulsion for parents of primary school children to purchase a school uniform, it is hoped that parents will send their children in uniform. We feel that uniform enhances the children’s feelings of belonging to and identifying with the school.
It is also cheaper to dress children in uniform than to allow them to dress in their own choice of clothes.   Uniform also prevents competition between children about the clothes worn.
The uniform includes a wide range of items which cater for all budgets and tastes and can be bought through Mapac, our school uniform supplier, or from many high street shops or supermarkets.

Please ensure all items of school uniform are clearly named.

Uniform

Grey skirt, pinafore, trousers or shorts
Blue and white checked summer dress
Royal blue school sweatshirt or cardigan
Pale blue polo shirt
Black shoes
White, black or grey socks / tights

No jeans please.

Hats

Baseball hats with the school logo are available. It is advisable for all children to have a hat in school during the warmer, sunny weather to wear when outdoors.

P.E. Clothes

An essential part of a child’s education is the provision of opportunities for good physical development. To take part in indoor PE sessions, children require plain black shorts and a white t-shirt. For outdoor PE sessions children require jogging bottoms, a sweatshirt in a plain dark colour and trainers. All PE kit should be kept in a named bag in school.

Jewellery

Jewellery may not be worn in school. The only exceptions are watches, studs for pierced ears, and cultural or religious adornments, which must be removed during lessons involving physical exercise. If such items cannot be removed the individual is not prepared in an acceptably safe way and cannot continue as is, so must take part in modified activity. The school will not accept responsibility for removing or storing studs. Long hair should be tied back for PE and DT activities.
