Why we have a school uniform
Wearing the correct uniform helps pupils feel confident and ready to learn. It also teaches children to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance.
We appreciate the support parents and carers provide in ensuring that your child comes to school each day wearing the correct school uniform.
What does my child need to wear?
For children in reception to year 6, the required items of school uniform are;
- a white shirt or polo shirt
- grey or black trousers or a knee length skirt
- a red cardigan or jumper
- black shoes or plain black trainers.
Shakespeare PE kit;
- white t-shirt
- red shorts
- plain black tracksuit (optional for winter months and outdoor lessons only)
We sell sweatshirts and cardigans, with the school logo on the front. We also sell white t-shirts and red shorts for PE, as well as book bags and PE bags. Please see the section on our website entitled ‘buying school uniform’ however, non-branded or secondhand items from other retailers are also acceptable. Our closest Uniform exchange is located at Bridge Community Church and runs 12:30-2:30pm every Tuesday at Zarach FOOD Club.
We ask that children do not wear jewellery to school in case of any possible loss or damage. If a child has pierced ears, then only small studs should be worn. We recognise that certain items of jewellery may be worn for religious reasons. Please speak to your child's class teacher.
