School uniform

All pupils are required to wear school uniform each day. As well as looking smart, it reminds us to be proud of our school. All uniform should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Please bear in mind that during the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure adequate ventilation classroom windows will remain open throughout the day. Your child will need a jumper every day, and additional layers in case of cold weather.
