Our school uniform consists of a bottle green sweatshirt or cardigan, white or bottle green polo shirt and grey skirt, pinafore, trousers or shorts. Girls may prefer to wear green/white summer dresses in the warmer weather.
Additionally, all children will require -
A bag for carrying books to and from school
A PE kit bag
White T-shirt, black shorts and/or track suit bottoms and plimsolls or trainers for PE
Each pupil has a hook provided in the cloakroom area and this should be used to accommodate their PE bag and coat. Their PE bag should be kept on their peg from Monday to Friday, and should contain the painting overall as well as the PE equipment.
The wearing of jewellery is not permitted in school with the exception of watches and stud earrings. These items MUST be removed for PE and games lessons. Stud earrings in newly pierced ears must be taped. Children must provide their own tape for this purpose. It is our general practice to ensure that pupils do not take part in PE in their school uniform.
Key Stage 2 girls and boys will also require warmer outdoor sports clothing for the winter months. Generally, tracksuit trousers, a T-shirt and a tracksuit top or sweatshirt will be sufficient. Trainers are sufficient for lessons involving ball skills on the hard courts and sports played on the field during the summer months. Whilst not compulsory, some children choose to bring studded boots for football and tag rugby which are played on the field during the winter months. Please note that ‘blade’ style studs on football boots are not permitted.
Additionally, Years 3 to 6 take part in swimming lessons at Penrith Leisure Centre in the Summer term, and need appropriate swimwear.
Please ensure that all clothing, footwear and swimwear is marked or labelled with your child’s name.
Supplies of new uniform items both with and without the school logo can be obtained through either Tesco.com or Lakeland Embroidery in Penrith.
