All clothing and personal belongings should be clearly marked with your child's name. Items are left behind at school in ‘forgotten places’ every day.
There is a school uniform which we would encourage the children to wear. We feel that it promotes a sense of identity within the school community, puts the children in the right frame of mind for working and creates a good impression when the school is seen in public.
Our school colours are blue, white, or grey. Items of uniform that should be in plain colours are:
- Shirt or blouse.
- Skirt or trousers.
- Grey or white socks.
- Black or brown shoes.
(Please note that jeans, tracksuits, leggings, trainers, open-toe sandals and general sports kit are considered unsuitable for everyday school wear).
Sweatshirts and cardigans, embroidered with our school emblem can be purchased from:

It is important that the children change for PE and Games and that they dress correctly to demonstrate a sense of pride in our school and as a discipline. Your co-operation in providing the above PE kit would be appreciated.
Sometimes PE or Games lessons have to be re-scheduled so it is important that your child keeps his/her kit at school all week. It should be taken home each Friday and brought back on Mondays. (We are limited for locker space in school and we would ask that the children only bring a bag suitable for their possessions. There is not the room for large sports kit bags).
The wearing of jewellery in school can be potentially dangerous so earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings are not allowed except in the following instances:
- Medicare bracelets and necklaces are allowed.
- A watch clearly marked with your child's name is allowed.
One pair of stud earrings may be worn but must be removed for all PE activities. Our school policy on this is in line with Hampshire Education Authority Health and Safety Guidelines.
