School Uniform

NEW Uniform supplier 

                                                                                                                                                          25 May 2018


Dear Parents/Carers,                                                                                                                      




As you will have read in the school newsletter sent 24 May we are changing our school uniform supplier with immediate effect.  We looked at several companies and, after comparing quality and price, we have decided to engage Gooddies, a family run business which supplies many schools across the country.

We are not changing our school logo but the uniform will be embroidered with a slightly adapted school logo to give a crisp and smart appearance with the full school name stitched around the tree.


We do not expect parents to buy a completely new set of uniform from September but would expect to phase this in gradually, and ask that any new items of clothing are sourced through Gooddies.

We have added several new items to the uniform including a reversible showerproof jacket, tracksuit and house coloured teeshirts. These are all a very good quality and competitively priced and will be very popular with children and parents. The full range of the new school uniform can be seen on the Gooddies website from 4 June 2018 and the uniform will be available to purchase online from this date.


Uniform can be delivered to home or the school and a computer will be made available at school from September for parents to log on to the Gooddies website and Parentpay. 

Ties, Baseball Caps and Water Bottles can be purchased directly through the school office.


Sizing samples for the uniform will be available at the Reception and Nursery Starter Days, Sports

Day, Open Evening and Summer Fayre.

Please visit and follow the link to find your school from Monday 4 June.  There

will also be a link from the school website shortly.

Please bear in mind that Gooddies will be very busy during the summer period so please order early to ensure delivery before the start of the Autumn Term 2018.

Yours faithfully




Jacky Fyson

Acting Headteacher                                                                                                                        



All uniform should be clearly named either with sew in/iron in labels or names written on labels with special laundry marker available from Robert Dyas or WH Smith.  Any item of clothing lost that is not named will be kept in the School Lost Property Box for one term after which unclaimed items will be given to Friends Committee for second hand uniform sales.





Jewellery is not allowed in school.  Pierced earrings are permitted but only small stud type should be worn during school time. Children will be required to remove earrings before PE and should be capable of doing so themselves as staff are not permitted to remove earrings for them.  Younger children should be discouraged from wearing earrings to avoid injury and we would ask that ear piercing take place at the beginning of the 6 week summer holiday so that healing can take place before children return to school.
