We encourage all children to wear uniform as it reinforces a pride in our school and a sense of belonging. The school colour is maroon. All children are encouraged to wear items from the simple uniform below. Please make sure that ALL clothing and footwear is clearly marked with your child’s name – either with a laundry pen or iron-on/sew-in labels – as uniform does tend to migrate from one end of the school to the other and it does make rummaging thro the Lost Property boxes easier!
The PTFA have a used uniform sale on Fridays after school in the School Hall. Donations of school uniform items that are no longer required are most welcome. The second hand uniform is sorted for quality, please come along on Friday to browse.
Uniform with the embroidered school motif – fleece jackets, polo shirts, PE t-shirt, jumpers and cardigans – is available directly from the National School Wear shop in the Merrywalks Shopping Centre, Stroud. A stock of items will be available in school on the New Parents’ Evening in July. Uniform is also available from Tesco who donate a small percentage of each sale to the school.
Generic school uniform – tunics, skirts, trousers, shorts, PE kit – is available at the National School Wear shop or at high street shops like Next, M&S, BHS or larger supermarkets such as Tesco and Asda. Many uniform items are available on the online stores of these companies. School uniform in the supermarkets is often very seasonal – lots available at the beginning of the summer holiday, limited sizes and choice by September. It can be a good idea to buy it when you see it – taking into account your child’s growth spurts – or order online.
Children are encouraged not to wear items of jewellery in school, with the exception of stud earrings and wristwatches, as items often cause minor accidents or become lost. Please name wristwatches.
