We have a smart school uniform, encouraging the children to take pride in themselves and to feel a sense of belonging in school. We also try to ensure our uniform does not place an unreasonable financial burden on families and so the majority of items are available at low cost from supermarkets and other retailers. The only school specific items are the school jumper / cardigan and the school tie which can be purchased at PC Sports in Yeadon.


Our uniform is:

  • Mid-grey trousers or skirt
  • White shirt
  • School jumper or cardigan
  • School tie (for younger children elasticated ties are available)
  • Black school shoes (In poor weather children may wear boots to get to school but should change into their shoes on arrival)
  • SUMMER OPTION - red and white summer dress or grey shorts


PE Kit

Children should have a separate PE / Games kit. This should include:

  • White T-shirt
  • Navy shorts (not cycling shorts)
  • Trainers for outside
  • Socks
  • Plain tracksuit or sweatshirt (for outdoor games)

[We are allowing old uniform polo shirts and sweatshirts to be used as PE Kit in the first year of our new uniform]



  • Hair - All children with hair of shoulder length or longer must have it tied back for school.
  • Jewellery - No jewellery is allowed in school. The exception to this is that children with pierced ears may wear simple stud earrings if they are able to remove and replace these without assistance for PE.
  • Make up - Children are not allowed to wear make up to school.
  • Nails - Nails should be of a suitable length for school and not decorated.    


In cold weather some children prefer to wear boots on their way to school. If your children are travelling in boots, they do need to have an appropriate pair of school shoes with them or at school to change into when they arrive.  Please also note that trainers are not acceptable school shoes.
