Uniform

Uniform

There is a school uniform which is worn throughout the school. The items with the school logo can be purchased from John Cheatle in Leicester or through Tesco Online. Please ensure that all items of clothing, bags, purses and wallets are clearly named. Bright yellow lost property boxes are located within each classroom.

Boys

  • White shirt or polo shirt
  • Grey or black trousers (Black jeans are not acceptable)
  • Green jumper or sweatshirt
  • Green fleece
  • Smart black school shoes without logos (Trainers are not acceptable)

Girls

  • White blouse or polo shirt
  • Grey or black skirt, pinafore or trousers (Black jeans are not acceptable)
  • Black, grey or white tights (Leggings are not acceptable)
  • Green jumper, sweatshirt or cardigan
  • Green fleece
  • Green and white checked summer dress or calotte dress
  • Smart black school shoes without logos (Trainers are not acceptable) 

Bags

  • Due to limited space within the cloakroom areas we ask that children refrain from bringing in large rucksacks. Instead we highly encourage foldable bags which can be stored in the children’s drawers. 

P.E. Indoor and Outdoor

  • Black shorts (girls and boys)
  • Red t-shirt
  • Plimsolls (for upper KS2 the teacher may specify trainers depending on the activity being taught)
  • Jogging bottoms and a fleece in particularly cold weather
  • Please keep P.E. kit within school in the smallest bag possible

Tights must be removed for PE lessons 

Please note: younger children find that Velcro fastenings on shoes and plimsolls are far easier to cope with than laces or buckles. Additionally, polo shirts as shirts and blouses with lots of buttons can be very difficult to manage.

Jewellery

No jewellery should be worn at school except for a medic-alert tags, a simple watch and/or stud earrings. No jewellery should be worn during P.E. or swimming lessons, except for a medic-alert tags. If, for religious reasons, your child has a piece of jewellery which cannot be removed, you will need to make an appointment to talk with Miss Hardy, the R.E. lead to discuss further. 

Coats

We require that your child has a waterproof coat with them in school on any day when it may be required.
