School Uniform

School Uniform 


We believe that uniform is important for the following reasons:

  • It is practical and enables children to be comfortable as they learn
  • Young children learn through play and through practical experiences therefore, the clothes that they wear should be matched to the activities they encounter during their school day
  • It eliminates social problems caused by latest fashion fads
  • It contributes to a feeling of togetherness and pride within our school


We ask that all children wear the uniform which will help them to enjoy and participate in the active learning experiences that we provide at Abbey CofE Infant School.

Ensuring best value for families                                                                                                       We have a written contract with the company that supplies our branded uniform items and we make sure parents get best value from our uniform suppliers by conducting a competitive tender for new contracts every five years. 


Recycling uniform                                                                                                                              To support sustainability and to reduce uniform costs for families we operate a recycling scheme in school whereby families can donate uniform to school when their child leaves or outgrows items. We hold a small stock of second hand uniform in school all year round for families to purchase at a low cost. We also hold second hand uniform sales at induction meetings and at the summer school fayre. If you wish to take part in this scheme, either to donate or purchase uniform, please contact the school office. 


JEWELLERY                                                                                                                                         Jewellery must not be worn for health and safety reasons and where ears are pierced, only small studs are permitted to be worn. Stud earrings will need to be removed for PE. Where earrings cannot be taken out, they will be covered with medical tape. Exceptions for jewellery can only be made for medical or religious reasons by prior arrangement with the Headteacher.

They should come to school in regular school uniform every day, which will allow them to enjoy the full range of opportunities on offer including: PE, forest school, practical learning experiences and active OPAL play times.
