In accordance with KCC guidelines and for health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school.  If children have pierced ears a small pair of plain stud earrings may be worn. These must be removed for PE; please remove them before school if your child is unable to do this independently. No other piercings are allowed.

Make up, and Cosmetics

Make up, cosmetics and nail varnish are not considered appropriate or consistent with our school uniform.  The school does not permit such products to be worn by any children, unless there is a specific event for which the Headteacher has given permission.

General Appearance and Hair

Children should be smart at all times with shirts tucked in, with collars done up and ties tight and straight.  Children with long hair should wear their hair tied up for health and safety reasons.


  • Sensible, black ‘school-type’ shoes, with black soles should be worn, without high heels’
  • No boots to be worn. (Pupils will need to change from boots to black shoes if worn to school during severe weather.)
  • Trainers are not acceptable for everyday wear but are fine for PE
  • Open toe and backless sandals are not allowed for safety reasons


All clothing and footwear should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Second-Hand Uniform / Financial Support

In cases where there may be financial hardship resulting in a pupil being unable to comply with this uniform policy, please do speak with a member of SLT and we will work together to resolve the situation. Please do also remember that we have a large selection of second-hand uniform available in school. We ask for a small donation which goes into our School Fund.
