School Uniform


Uniform is available to purchase online from Stitch Design - https://www.stitchdesign.co.uk/for-parents
You will need the school postcode initially to access the site: SW18 3QQ




We have a simplistic approach to uniform in Nursery so that the children can be independent as they access the indoor and outdoor environment, and use the toilet.
The uniform is:
• Plain blue, black or grey leggings, jogging bottoms or elasticated trousers
• Velcro trainers
• Earrings: simple studs only
• No necklaces and bracelets
• All clothing needs to be labelled
Children should wear practical tops.
In the Summer term children can wear red gingham summer dresses, grey school skirts, or blue, black or grey shorts. Velcro sandals with whole foot enclosed are acceptable. Shoulders must always be covered.


Reception to Yr6 – Red polo shirt, V necked navy sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo
Pinafore Dress (Grey) to be worn with red polo shirt
Grey skirt (sensible length) or grey trousers
Grey or Navy tights – plain
Red gingham summer dress
Plain white ankle socks to be worn with skirts or dresses to the knee in cold conditions (not above knee)


Reception to Yr6 – Red polo shirt, V necked navy sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo
Grey school trousers
Grey Socks
In summer, grey shorts of a similar material to trousers


Black conventional shoes below the ankle.
Children should not wear trainers, plimsolls or boots to school except in exceptional circumstances to be agreed with the Headteacher.

                      Acceptable footwear

PE Kit

Plain white polo shirt
Plain navy shorts
Black Plimsolls (KS1) Trainers (KS2) – all below ankle. No form of boot.
Outdoor – navy jogging bottoms/ navy/ black leggings
Children can wear school sweatshirts in colder conditions


Boys - Swimming trunks or well fitted shorts above the above the knees
Girls – Swimming costumes.
Swimming cap for beyond shoulder length hair


All hair should be tied if beyond shoulder length. Hair should be sensible with no patterns, no mohican style or anything that will draw negative attention to the child.
Bands or hair clips – plain navy, black or red, no flowers, bows etc.
Earrings – simple studs only – children will be asked to remove any other form or in the case of younger children, parents will be asked.
Hijab – red or navy.


There are no set principles regarding coats  although they must be practical and waterproof.

Hats, caps & sunglasses

Sun hats or plain baseball caps are suitable to protect the children in warm weather and to protect them from the sunshine (no Snap Hats)They should not be worn to school on other days. Plain hats may be worn in winter. Sun glasses are not needed unless with supporting evidence from a health professional.

Please note
1. No hooded tops should be worn to school
2. No nail varnish, make up or temporary tattoos (other than for cultural reasons)
3. If a child arrives in school without suitable uniform it is the responsibility of the parent to inform the class teacher. If no reason is provided parents will be contacted directly and the child provided with a school sweatshirt for the day.
4. Where the uniform policy is deliberately ignored parents will be contacted directly as it is they who purchase their children’s school wear and they have been made very aware of the schools expectations.
5. Where a child turns up for school inappropriately dressed e.g. unsuitable coat in winter or insufficient protection from the sun in summer, they will be supervised in the building.
