School Uniform

We believe that pupils really feel a sense of belonging by wearing a uniform.  They take greater pride, not only in themselves, but also in their learning within the School.  We do, therefore, have a School Uniform (all of which should be clearly named).  All garments are readily available from most high street stores, although items bearing the school badge are available from Graduates in Orpington High Street. 

Children in reception have the option of wearing red tracksuit bottoms to encourage independent dressing and toileting.  Reception pupils should wear polo shirts and should not wear ties.   Please also make sure that they have black Velcro/buckle fastening shoes rather than laced up shoes.

Years 1 and 2 are welcome to start wearing shirts and ties.  Year 3 and above should wear long or short sleeved cotton shirts with the school tie.  Shirts must be tucked in and top buttons done up. 

Year 6 pupils have a special tie to differentiate them from the rest of the school, which is available from the school office. 

Shoes should be black or navy although in the summer red or white sensible sandals are allowed.  Black trainers are not acceptable footwear.  

 

Below you will find a list of uniform, for both the Winter and Summer. Our uniform can be purchased from Graduates Schoolwear, 201 High Street, Orpington, Kent, BR6 0PF (Telephone: 01689 821 439)

PE GAMES AND SWIMMING KITS

Each child will have a named PE bag  in which to put the following items, also clearly named:-

  • Red shorts and white ‘badged’ T shirt
  • Plimsolls -  Trainers are not suitable for indoors apparatus as the stiff sole prevents gripping
  • Plain navy blue tracksuit (no ‘branded’ items please)

Earrings, which can be especially dangerous, are to be removed by children for PE lessons. Children must be able to remove and replace their own earrings or parents should remove them on PE days.  (We ask that pupils do not have their ears pierced during term time, as earrings have to remain in for 6 weeks and this is not suitable for swimming, games etc.  ONLY small studs in the earlobe are acceptable to wear to school). 

When swimming, we require pupils to wear ‘regulation’ swimwear (not bikini/long shorts, etc) and a swim hat.
