School Uniform

High standards of dress are considered to be very important. School uniform is practical, allows for ease of recognition, avoids discrimination and adds to pupils’ sense of belonging and self-respect. The school colours are bottle green, grey, white and black.

Please note that for health and safety reasons teachers are not permitted to teach PE to children who are wearing incorrect clothing or footwear. We have to be very strict about correct kit so that all children are safe.

Specialist footwear for games (e.g. football boots) will only be recommended to parents if the use/expense is justified. A strong pair of waterproof trainers will normally suffice unless frequent practices and inter-school matches are arranged. Children in Year 4 who have swimming lessons will be told about appropriate swimming kit before lessons commence.

As part of our Pupil Premium Funding, we are able to help parents with the cost of PE kits so that all children have an equal opportunity to access the PE curriculum.  This means that if your child is currently, or has ever been, in receipt of free school meals, we can provide them with a kit bag comprising PE shirt, shorts, fleece, tracksuit bottoms and a pair of pumps. 


Children should bring sports clothing to school in a suitable sports bag (e.g. the CJS drawstring PE bag which is available to purchase from school). Please do not send in large bags, as we do not have cloakroom/classroom space for them. The outside of the bag must show the child’s name. Please mark all items of clothing with your child’s name.


Children should not wear makeup, nail varnish or jewellery. Similarly denim jeans, denim jackets, hoodies, leather jackets or clothing with badges are not considered acceptable school wear.

Watches may be worn at parents’ own risk but must be removed for all sporting activities. Small stud-type earrings may be worn but the Governing Body will not accept responsibility where such items become damaged or lost or cause personal injury. Children must be able to take these out for themselves for PE activities (or provide surgical tape to cover them over) for safety reasons.


Unmarked lost property is stored in school and disposed of at the end of each term. Parents wishing to locate lost items should report to Reception before or after school.
