What a child wears to school reflects their attitude to learning. It portrays the schools’ ethos and shared positive values. We have a very simple uniform that pupils are encouraged to wear.
This is a navy sweatshirt or cardigan, a white blouse / shirt and black / navy, grey or black trousers or skirt.
Year 6 pupils will be given a school hoodie as a leaving present- this can be worn as uniform in their final year.
Our school uniform can be purchased from local retailers and Ziggy’s in Harpurhey or online at
We also run a uniform swap shop and encourage families to donate good quality, used uniform to this scheme. If you have any uniform you can donate, please drop this into school and hand to any member of our team.
PE and Games Kit:
It is important for pupils to wear the correct clothing for physical activities.
For PE children in KS1 and KS2 require a white t-shirt and dark shorts, either black or navy and trainers or pumps. Tracksuits or sweatshirts may be worn for outdoor games during the winter months. All clothing should be clearly labelled. For Health and Safety reasons jewellery must not be worn for sporting activities and long hair must be tied back.
Children in Year 4 attend weekly swimming lessons at Broadway Swimming baths.
Girls have to have a swimming costume, not a bikini or tankini, and boys must wear swimming trunks not shorts.
All children with long hair must wear a swimming hat. Again for Health and Safety reasons jewellery must not be worn, including ear studs or sleepers.
Jewellery and watches:
The only items that are considered appropriate for school are watches and studs or sleepers worn in pierced ears.
The school does not approve of either jewellery or cosmetics.
Please note that staff are not allowed to remove or look after jewellery for children. The safest place is at home.
Temporary tattoos are also not appropriate for school.
Any child who comes to school with false, acrylic or gel nails will be sent home to have them removed. We consider these to be inapproprite for young children and very unsafe in the primary setting.
Nail varnish is also discouraged.
We do not have any rules or guidance on hair styles or colours but ask you to consider appropriateness for primary school. If we feel that there is a safety issue with hair accessories, we will remove them.
Putting your child’s name on all their clothing reduces the risk of things being lost. Please make sure you put your child’s name on all their clothing.
If your child has lost something then please talk to a classroom adult, check their classroom first and then the cloakroom.
At the end of term any lost property will be displayed to the children. If it is not claimed then it will be donated to charity.
