School Uniform Reminder We seek parents’ co-operation in sending the children to school wearing appropriate clothing. Our school uniform consists of a white polo shirt, maroon sweatshirt or cardigan (with school logo) and black or grey trousers/skirt. In the summer, a red and white gingham check dress and plain white socks for the girls and black or grey shorts and grey or black socks for the boys. Shoes should be black, open-toed shoes can only be worn with socks. P.E. clothing is a change of white shirt, navy shorts and trainers/daps, which must be kept in school for the whole week. A drawstring bag is still the most suitable item in which to keep this equipment. Space on and around the children’s pegs is very limited indeed. Please ensure that all uniform is clearly named. You will appreciate that lost unnamed items of school uniform are so similar that ownership can be untraceable.
