  • All hair must be of a single natural colour.
  • Hair longer than shoulder length must be tied back.
  • Hair accessories should be in school colours e.g. red or black.
  • With the exception of watches, no ‘jewellery’ should be worn. If your child has pierced ears, then only gold or silver coloured studs should be worn.
  • Nail varnish is strictly prohibited.
  • Coats need a loop so that they can be hung on a peg.
  • School book bags – The school uniform shop sells school book bags for all years.  Year 6 children are the only class allowed to bring their own book bag.

Reminders will be sent home if children are not wearing the correct uniform.

All children’s clothing must be clearly marked with their name to avoid confusion and loss.
