We have a school uniform which all children are expected to wear. We ask for your support in ensuring that your child has the appropriate uniform, as it creates a sense of belonging and supports us in maintaining a high standard of behaviour. (Please see the visual guides below).
Please ensure that your child’s uniform, coat, bag, wellies, water bottle and any other clothing items are clearly labelled with their name.

Any device that connects to the internet (eg a smart watch) or that can record (including taking photos) is not allowed for safeguarding reasons; such items can be handed over at the start of each day.

Please ensure that your child does not bring valuable items (e.g. toys, devices) to school with them without prior permission. Mobile phones are not permitted in school and must be handed in to the office on arrival and collected at the end of the school day.
