Our school uniform for all pupils is a navy sweatshirt with the school logo, with grey or black trousers for both girls and boys or a pinafore/skirt for girls. We also have red polo-shirts, navy cardigans and fleece body warmers with the school logo. A navy long sleeved zip-up fleece is also available as an extra layer indoor or a light coat for outdoors, along with a waterproof coat which also has the school logo.
During the summer months girls can wear red and white check dresses with their school sweatshirt, fleece or cardigan. Boys may wear grey shorts instead of trousers.
We recommend for the safety of the children that school shoes have a low heel.
P.E. t-shirts with the school logo are worn with navy or black shorts and P.E. shoes. A spare sweatshirt with tracksuit bottoms and trainers are needed for outdoor P.E.
Please always send your child with a coat as we try to get outside whatever the weather. It is important to name your child’s uniform so that it goes home with the correct person.
Uniforms can be purchased from: Mark1, Hereford Industrial Supply.

We have a site fairly near to the school, which we are able to use weekly (with kind permission from Garnon’s Estate), for Forest School sessions. Each class goes to Forest School every Wednesday afternoon for a term, enabling every child to gain experience for 6 weeks twice during the year. Staff and volunteers have attended comprehensive training to ensure that all health and safety aspects have been considered. Activities include den building, cooking on a fire, learning to use tools, team activities, playing in a natural environment and having fun! Please see our parent’s booklet for further information by following the link at the bottom of the page. We transport the children to the forest by bus.
