In September 2018, we introduced a school tie to the uniform. These can be purchased from Grays of Blackburn either as an elasticated or traditional tie. For Reception to Year 5, the tie is striped in the school colours of read and blue. Please note Year 6 pupils, have a specially designed tie to denote their status in school.

PE Kit: Blue or black shorts, with Navy blue/ dark t-shirt and pumps. Please note that trainers are only permitted for outdoor PE lessons.  Please note, the school cannot accommodate large bags.


We expect all items of clothing including shoes and pumps to be named.


Children are not allowed to wear any jewellery, but stud earrings are permitted. They must be removed for PE. If they cannot be removed, they must be covered with a plaster. Please avoid having your child’s ears pierced during term time. Summer holidays are the best time! Do not allow your child to bring any valuables into school i.e. mobile phones.


Please note: on days when pupils have a planned PE session, children are asked to arrive in school with their PE Kits on. In cold weather, they are permitted to wear leg coverings.
