As a school, we feel it is important that pupils take pride in their appearance. We hope parents feel the same and the attached information should help to ensure you child comes to school wearing the appropriate clothing.
The basic recommended uniform:
- Grey or black trousers/skirt or pinafore dress, navy blue or red polo shirt
- Red sweatshirt or cardigan. (Y5 and Y6 may wear navy blue)
- Dark shoes (No trainers – these may only be worn for P.E.)
- Blue or red check dresses and grey or black shorts may also be worn in summer.
Note, due to safeguarding of pupils, all students are asked to have covered arms and legs between October half term and February half term. Any changes to our uniform must be agreed by the headteacher.
For PE children wear blue shorts and a red top. They need a pair of plimsolls or trainers to change into for PE (not a pair worn for school). Y3 children go swimming at Durham School baths and need a swimsuit or trunks (not shorts), a towel and a swimming hat.
Children are normally expected to wear uniform for school visits. They do not usually wear uniform for school parties, when they either come to school in party clothes or change at lunchtime. The School Choir and Orchestra wear red polo shirts and black trousers/skirts for performances, parents who have children involved in these activities may like to bear this in mind when purchasing uniforms.
All items of clothing should be appropriate for school wear (e.g. No jeans or denim skirts, high heeled shoes, shirts with a logo other than the school logo). Coloured hair, nail varnish, hair gel, make up etc are only permitted on party days and for special events. Jewellery, including earrings, may NOT be worn in school. (A small watch is permitted).
We would encourage you to buy the Iron-on name labels so that all items of lost property can easily be returned to their owner.
