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:

  • Dark royal blue sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece. The school logo is strongly encouraged but optional.
  • White or blue shirt or white, dark blue, royal blue or light blue polo shirt. The school logo is optional.
  • Black, navy or grey trousers. Plain black, navy or grey jeans with no embroidery or decoration may be worn. (No normal jeans, sports trousers or tracksuit bottoms).
  • Headscarves should be blue, Black or white not coloured.
  • Tights should be black, plain grey, navy or neutral colour.
  • Sensible shoes, boots (no high heeled fashion boots) or trainers.
  • For those children who wish to wear something lighter in the summer months:
    • Gingham dress in blue & white, red & white or yellow & white.
    • Black, navy, grey or blue shorts. These can range in length from above the ankle to just above the knee. Sports shorts and shorts ending at the top of the thigh are not acceptable.
    • Sandals or crocs. Flip-flops are not allowed.
  • The P.E. kit consists of a white T-shirt and black shorts. Plimsolls and trainers (these trainers are to be different from those worn everyday) may be worn for outdoor games. When the weather is cold, children may wear a tracksuit or change into alternative warm clothing for outdoor P.E. sessions. Children whose religion forbids the wearing of shorts may wear tracksuit bottoms or leggings.

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 online at Stitch Factory 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.

School Lunches

Our school meals are provided by Taylor Shaw. You can visit their website for more information by clicking here.

Our menu from April 2022 is available here.

Online Payment Systems -

We currently use Parentpay as our method of receiving online payments for school meals and trips.

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. To request exceptional leave, you may complete the electronic form here, and print and return it to the School Office. Paper copies of this form are available from the school office & here.

Sheffield City Council - "The Sheffield Directory Website"

Our parents/carers may find the newly launched Sheffield City Council site useful. The Sheffield Directory Website brings together information on services, activities and events across the city. This Directory is a one stop shop for people to find information, advice and the services they need, whether that's finding a childminder, a sporting club or to find out where to get help or advice.
