Uniform Information



We expect the children to be smartly dressed in our school uniform of sensible shoes, a polo shirt and/or school sweatshirt with our school logo on them. In the warmer months some pupils choose to wear a gingham dress in the jade green colour. A waterproof jacket/warmer coat is required depending on the season.

You will find further details from Sam Scott’s in Penrith, our clothing supplier. Sam Scott’s have an online shop with free delivery. The children should wear shoes that they can put on and take off themselves – separate sports shoes are required for P.E. However, mules, flip-flops, crocs and high heels are not appropriate for school wear, due to safety issues. In addition, each child needs a drawstring P.E. bag with either shorts/ skort and a lime green Bolton T-shirt (also available from Sam Scott’s) and navy or black bottoms, plimsolls or trainers. In colder months, children will also need a sweatshirt and tracksuit top/ jogging bottoms/leggings for outdoor P.E (preferably in black or navy blue). Hoodies are available from Sam Scott's that can be embroidered with the logo etc. 

For KS2 Football / Tag-Rugby boots are required (which must have rounded studs, not “blades” and shin-pads (football only) which are also essential for those taking part in competitive matches with other schools. Please note that the school operates a spare boot box. Children are welcome to 'borrow' a suitable pair and then return them after use. We encourage parents to donate to this box once your child has out-grown a pair of boots.

Long hair must be tied back and a hair tie or bobble should be provided from home. It is expected that the P.E. bag stays in school and goes home occasionally for washing. Please ensure that all items of school clothing and P.E. items are clearly marked with your child’s name. We encourage the embroidered naming of clothing from Sam Scott’s. Children are discouraged from wearing jewellery, except a watch. Children with pierced ears must remove the studs or cover with tape/plaster themselves which is provided by home.


Uniform Update during shop closures: 


As the end of the school year is quickly approaching, Sam Scotts is still unsure how long social distancing measures will be in place and their shop is currently closed. Due to this uncertainty, they are putting in measures to provide a full service while they are closed. 


  • All uniforms are available to purchase online 
  • Orders are available to be posted or collected safely from their shop in Penrith
  • Items can be fully exchanged or refunded up until the new school year starts* (items cannot be exchanged/refunded if they have been personalised, but they can personalise items separately at a later date)
  • If restrictions are lifted, they will open up the shop for those who can't order online. 
  • To keep their staff safe, and to limit the number of people in the shop, they are opening a separate premises for all their embroidery and printing services.
