We are very proud of our school uniform and we believe that to wear school uniform has a positive effect on improving children's attitudes in the classroom and also to general school behaviour. We like to create a sense of common purpose and identity in the school. We deliberately make our uniform very accessible – it can be purchased cheaply from local supermarkets and, although logoed items are available through our website, these are not a requirement.
Our school colour is red. Cardigans, sweatshirts and t-shirts with the school logo are available for purchase from NK Sports. Local supermarkets also sell the correct colour cardigans and sweatshirts.
Our school uniform is:
All hair longer than shoulder length should be tied up. Hair accessories should be practical, in school colours and of a sensible size.
Children may wear a wrist watch (no smart watches please). Children with pierced ears can wear plain stud earrings. For health and safety reasons, all jewellery will need to be removed for PE. If it is not possible to remove earrings, they should be taped over. No other jewellery is permitted, including charity bands and friendship bracelets.
Protection from the sun is an important aspect of school summer clothing and the Health Authority clearly warns parents that exposed skin during the summer period can lead to serious skin disorders.
It is a compulsory element of Health Education that all pupils should have a change of clothing for PE with suitable footwear. However, due to COVID restrictions, we continue to ask that children come to school wearing their PE kit on their allocated PE days
As well as sweatshirts, cardigans and fleeces with the school logo, book bags can be purchased from NK Sports.
Please ensure that all clothing is clearly marked with your child's name.
