They should not have any silver/gold buckles, fur around the top, have any metal studs or any other coloured embellishments. The boots should be flat, no wedges or heels are acceptable. Children wearing boots that are not acceptable as part of the school dress code must change into their school shoes when entering the school building. Trainers must not be worn as part of school uniform.
GREY/RED/NAVY BLUE SOCKS OR TIGHTS: These should be plain and simple and not have patterns or cartoon characters on them.

Other Uniform Information
Nail Varnish/Make Up
Children should not wear nail varnish or make up in school at any time. If your child is wearing nail varnish/gel or make up they may be asked to remove it.
Ideally, jewellery should not be worn in school (a watch only may be worn – no rings, necklaces or bracelets). If your child has pierced ears, then only small, plain ‘studs’ should be worn. Children may only wear one stud in each ear. Studs worn in any other body part – including noses, eyebrows, tongues and navels – are not permitted.
Jewellery should not be worn during P.E. and games lessons. To avoid any problems caused by ‘freshly pierced ears’ and the difficulty of removing studs during the healing period, we would recommend that piercings should take place at the beginning of the summer holiday.
If your child is not able to remove their own studs, then these must not be worn for school on P.E./games days.
Permanent tattoos are not permitted under the age of 18. Temporary tattoos, including henna patterns must be removed before a child comes to school.
Long hair (shoulder length and longer) should be kept off the face and tied back in some way, either with a blue or red head band or bobble. Hair should also be of one colour, preferably the child’s natural colour and styling kept to a minimum. Please keep things simple.
Children may only use a school water bottle throughout the day and these are available from the school office at £2.50 each.
We do not allow children to bring any form of electronic device into school, this includes mobile phones, tablets and smart watches.
