All children in Reception to Year 6 are expected to wear school uniform as detailed below. Nursery children are not expected to wear uniform. Parents may select uniform according to their child's preference from the list below. We have no specific requirements for uniform depending on the weather but ask that parents always ensure their children will be warm enough during outside playtimes.
Uniform items may be purchased from any high street store, supermarket or other supplier. Logo embroidered uniform can be purchased from Marks and Spencer on www.mandsyourschooluniform.com. We also have links with a local 'LS12 School Uniform Scheme' who can provide parents with second hand uniform at no cost. Parents can message the scheme via their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/LS12UniformScheme/

It is important that your child is properly dressed for Physical Education. The children should come to school dressed in PE kit on the days that they have PE lessons, children will not be expected to wear uniform on these days. Children are expected come to school in correct PE clothing as shown below. Parents will be informed if their child repeatedly fails to wear the correct PE clothing. Children without their own PE kit will be given school kit to wear. If you are unsure of which days your child has PE then please speak to the class teacher or telephone the school office.
tshirt or polo shirt - white
shorts/leggings/skort/joggers - black
additional warm clothing for outdoor PE should be brought to school including a black, grey or dark green jumper or hoody. These should not be needed all year round but should be provided in the autumn and sring terms. Where possible, as much of our PE lessons will take place outside so it is useful for your child to have these warmer clothing options available.
If you have any questions about school uniform requirements, please telephone the school office who will be able to help.
