The school uniform consists of the following: Grey or black trousers, skirt or pinafore, white polo shirt and royal blue school sweatshirt. The only item that we would like pupils to have is the school sweat shirt, however plain royal blue is acceptable. Shoes should be sensible, black school shoes and no high heels. Please also ensure that the length of your child's skirt/pinafore is respectable - bear in mind that the children do sit cross legged on the floor!
We would remind parents to ensure that all items of school uniform are clearly marked with your child’s name. Please also ensure that your child does not wear any jewellery, nail varnish or make-up for school.
Earrings and jewellery should not be worn to school. If earrings are worn they should be removed for PE, if they cannot be removed for PE then they should be covered with a plaster or tape, which should be provided by the family and kept with the child.
Please ensure that your child has the appropriate clothing at school with them during the year as they do spend a lot of time outside, especially at lunch time i.e. their school sweatshirt and coat for the cooler months, sunhats and sun cream during the summer.
Over the course of a school year we inherit a huge amount of lost property. Anything that is named, we endeavour to return to the owner, but at the end of each half term all lost property is disposed of. The lost property is located in the lobby by the double blue doors at the rear of the school - please check it regularly for any items your child may misplace.
Our school uniform is can be purchased at Coes of Ipswich. They are a well known and respected retail outlet located on Norwich Road. They offer free parking behind the shop for all of their customers, they offer a personal shopping experience and free alterations to their customers. Coes offer three different purchasing options:
· to purchase on-line with delivery to home (a delivery fee will be charged)

They will be providing Royal Blue Sweatshirts and Sweatcardigan’s with the school emblem on and they will also be stocking Book Bags, PE Bags, PE shorts and T-shirts aswell as other plain items of school uniform.
We are very excited about our new Cedarwood PE t-shirt. It is a Sports top in our Cedarwood colours of blue and white and the t-shirt colours will be exclusive to our school. It is lighter material making it more comfortable for the children to wear and should be less creased in their PE Bags and hopefully won’t require ironing!
This t-shirt will be introduced from Year 1 upwards, however we are not expecting parents to go out and purchase these immediately but when you find the need to replace your child’s current PE top we would ask that you purchase this new style. Foundation stage pupils will continue to wear any top and shorts.
Whilst we recognise that a range of uniform pieces are on offer the only things we do ask for pupils to wear are the following: grey/black trousers, skirt or pinafore, a white polo top and a sweatshirt/sweatcardigan with the school logo. You do of course have the option to purchase your childrens jumper/cardigan in the plain non logo style from other retailers if you wish.A list of the uniform and prices are available at www.coes.co.uk
