Uniform Policy

School Uniform Policy

I am writing to thank parents for supporting the school’s policy. School expects children to dress in accordance with the uniform policy. In particular we would like to remind parents that normal blue jeans, sports trousers, tracksuit bottoms or blue tops incorporating non school logos/ or slogans are not part of the policy.

The uniform policy is as follows:

Other guidelines on personal appearance include:

Jewellery – only watches and sleeper/stud earrings are allowed. These are to be removed for P.E. and swimming lessons.

Body Piercing – we request that any body piercing rings are removed whilst the child is in school on heath & safety grounds.

Make-up – no make-up is allowed in school.

School uniform items showing our logo are available from The Stitch Factory. Parents are able to order on line from the following web address: or by completing an order form available from the school office or by clicking here. Please allow 10 days until receipt. All other items are available from major stores and supermarkets.

Online Payment Systems -

 We currently use Parentpay as our method of receiving online payments for school meals and trips.  In March 2018 we will be moving to Sheffield City Council's preferred provider, sQuid.

Request for Leave of Absence


“The current law does not give any entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday during term time. Any application for leave must be in exceptional circumstances and the Head teacher must be satisfied that the circumstances warrant the granting of leave. Parents can be fined for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school.”

Therefore the Head teacher may only consider giving permission for a pupil to be absent from school in term time in ‘exceptional circumstances’ and proof will be requested by the Headteacher. Request for Leave Letter & Form.
