Children are actively encouraged to wear school uniform every day and we believe it develops a stronger sense of identity and belonging as well as creating a positive image among parents/carers and the wider community. We appreciate the support of parents/carers with this and encourage you to ensure that your child always wears uniform.
Children can wear the following:
- plain grey/black skirt (knee-length)
- plain grey or black pinafore
- red and white checked gingham dress
- plain grey/black trousers
- plain grey/black tailored shorts
- white school polo shirt
- burgundy sweatshirt or cardigan
- plain grey/white/black socks or grey/black tights
- plain black sensible flat shoes (girls may wear black ankle boots in the winter months)
Type of shoes not permitted in school due to health and safety: no heels, any platform, open sandals and ‘Croc’ style shoes.
Please note: Jeans are not permitted to be worn to school, unless there is a non-school uniform day.
- burgundy t-Shirt or polo shirt with embroidered logo (available from Aubyn Davies) or a plain burgundy t-shirt – no football shirts are allowed
- black shorts
- tracksuit bottoms and suitable top for outside
- trainers for outdoor games only
- plimsolls for Indoor PE and pupils must be in bare feet for gymnastics (this is for health and safety reasons)
Parents can purchase school uniform and PE kit at any retailer, however, sweatshirts and PE shirts with an embroidered school logo are available to buy from the Aubyn Davies, 81 St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1SQ.
We do have second hand uniform available from time to time, so please do ask the school office if this is something you require.
Our uniform has been kept simple to avoid unnecessary expense. We expect all pupils to follow the dress code as written above.
Please ensure all clothing is clearly named.
Hair should be neat and tidy and extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school. The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair or have hair coloured or dyed.
Please leave enough time for any shaved patterns or dyed hair to grow out before the start of a new term.
Long hair should be tied back during Physical Education lessons with a suitable soft item to prevent entanglements in apparatus and to prevent it obscuring vision.
A simple hairband or Alice Band may be worn to tie long hair back but anything added as a fashion accessory e.g. bows, Alice bands with ears, unicorn horns, etc, are not permitted.
Makeup and Nails
- No make up or nail varnish should be worn.
- Nails need to be sufficiently short to prevent injury to self and others, especially in Physical Education lessons.
- Earrings can be worn (studs only) but can cause a particular problem for P.E. Earrings should be removed by the child during P.E./swimming. Staff are not allowed to remove or insert earrings.
- No other jewellery can be worn to school e.g. bracelets, chains, etc.
- Children can wear watches, but not watches that connect to mobile phones or to the Internet and take photos, e.g. Apple Watch, Samsung Watch, etc. These watches are a distraction and also very expensive.
