Look at that smile!
Here is Pippa in her brand new school uniform and PE kit. As you can tell from her huge smile she’s very excited and can’t wait to wear her uniform in September when starting school. Doesn’t she look smart?
We can’t wait to see all of our new starters looking smart on their first day wearing their uniform with pride and a big smile like Pippa. Therefore, we would like to politely remind our families to make sure all uniform orders are placed before the 8th August to ensure delivery before the start of term.
We just love this picture of Alfie excitedly trying on his school uniform. He looks so smart and ready for September.
It will be so lovely to see our first ever Reception cohort walking into school on the 9th September all dressed in their uniform for the very first time, especially if they are all wearing such a wonderful smile as Alfie.
All children are expected to wear the school colours of navy blue and green. We politely ask and expect parents to support our academy policy on school uniform. Most of our uniform can be purchased from the school uniform retailer of your choice. However, the school tie and jumper/cardigan with the school logo can only be purchased from Brigade.

Foundation stage – Indoor and Outdoor Wear
As part of the curriculum in the Foundation stage, children are encouraged to use the outdoor environment. It is essential that the children have appropriate outdoor coats and shoes suitable for the weather, i.e. wet weather coat and trousers, plus wellies.
We also ask that our Reception children have a pair of slippers in school too for when learning indoors. There is much research on this helping to relax pupils and improve learning as they feel more comfortable and feel that home and school are an extension of each other.
Uniform items with the embroidered academy logo are purchased from Brigade at a reasonable cost. Brigade offers a vast selection of other optional items, full details can be found on their website.
For the safety of all children, jewellery should not be worn at school. Parents are respectfully requested to support this requirement to prevent loss and/or injury.
Children with pierced ears are permitted to wear small stud earrings only. These must be removed before PE lessons or covered with micropore tape (to be provided by the parent) to prevent loss and/or injury.
Hairstyles and Presentation
We like our children to be of smart appearance. Unnaturally coloured hair or shaved heads or patterns shaved into the hair are not suitable for school as this can draw attention to a child in an unhelpful way. Long hair should be tied back for reasons of hygiene and safety. We also ask that bows and large hair bands are not worn in school and that any bands or clips are that of the academy colours.
Money and Valuables
Children are discouraged from bringing money or valuables to school other than when requested by the school. Where this is unavoidable, money and valuables should never be left in cloakrooms but given to the class teacher for safekeeping until the end of the day.
