School Uniform

The school is a proud community where the wearing of school uniform creates a sense of identity and belonging. Whilst we can’t insist that you follow our uniform policy we strongly encourage it. We hope that by choosing to come to our school you will respect this expectation. Please label all school uniform and coats as it will offer the best possible chance of reuniting lost items with their owners!

Our uniform with logo can be obtained from The Sports Shop on the High Street, Portishead.

Hair accessories – must be plain/minimal and black or in the school colours. Hair bands and bows should not be oversized or feature other shapes e.g. cat ears, unicorns etc.

Jewellery – Should be avoided where possible. One pair of sleeper ear studs is allowed. Children will be asked to remove earrings for PE or cover them in tape. No other jewellery should be worn to school.

Opportunities for children to show their individuality by deviating from uniform expectations are offered on fund raising non uniform days.
