Hair should not cover the ears, eyes or collar and should be natural in colour and style. Hair should also be cut so that there are no distinguishing lengths between the hair on the top of the head and that on the sides, i.e. no shaved sides or tops.

Jewellery must not be worn. Small gold or silver stud earrings are tolerated but children must be able to remove these themselves for PE lessons (Health & Safety regulations). Pupils in Years 3 to 6 may wear a watch, fitted to the wrist. No nail varnish or nail extensions. No tattoo transfers.

All clothing and personal property must be clearly marked with your child’s name. Please check labelling at intervals for fading. Lost property is collected by the school office. Whilst every effort will be made to find lost items of clothing, the school cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage. 

Failure to comply with our uniform policy can lead to children losing privileges, missing break time, being stopped from attending off site activities e.g. sports events, swimming lessons, trips. Parents will also be sent a letter reminding them of our uniform policy.
Any decision regarding failure to comply with our uniform code will be left to the discretion of the Headteacher.
