Uniform Information

We encourage children to wear a simple uniform, based on the colours navy blue and grey. We expect the children to stick to these colours including hair bands and ribbons.


For the foreseeable future children must come to school in PE kit on their PE days.  When a child is going to Forest Schools then they are encouraged to wear their own clothes with long sleeves and welly boots.


 PE sweatshirts and other items embroidered with the school logo can be ordered either through

For PE kit, please note the following:

  • Outdoor PE kit of navy jogging trousers and a navy sweatshirt and is recommended for the cold weather
  • Pupils should wear  trainers
  • Currently, PE Kit should be worn to school on PE days. This will be reviewed when the current hygiene guidelines can be relaxed. 


There are no swimming lessons at present. We hope to resume our regular lessons at Grange Paddocks Leisure Centre soon.



Children may wear a simple watch to school and may wear one pair of small stud earrings but no other jewellery should be worn.

In line with Essex County Policy, earrings must be removed for PE lessons.  It is no longer allowed to cover earrings, including newly pierced ears, with tape for PE.  We therefore recommend that if parents are planning to have children’s ears pierced, this is done at the beginning of the summer holidays so that earrings can be removed on return to school.
