Uniform & PE Information

March reopening - We appreciate that children may well have grown out of uniform and that money is very tight for some families. Please do not worry if you do not have the correct clothing for the moment. Visit our information on reopening for further guidance.


We really need to keep the amount of things being brought into school to an absolute minimum to avoid use of communal areas and to reduce contamination risk, so please follow the expectations in the documents above.

Please support the school by ensuring your child has the correct school uniform (including colour).


Sweat Shirts, Cardigans, Fleeces, PE Shorts, etc are available to purchase online or in-store from C&D Schoolwear or  My Clothing.  Other uniform items can be purchased online from large supermarkets or town centre shops.  NB: Uniform may be purchased from any supplier and does not have to contain the school logo.  Please ensure, however, that you have the correct school sweatshirt colour for your child's year group (bottle green is NOT uniform).
