School uniform for Nursery and Reception pupils is a Braithwaite School sweatshirt and a white polo shirt, available from the school, with grey trousers, tracksuit trousers or skirt. In summer, girls may wear a blue/purple gingham dress.

All pupils (from Reception to Y6) should wear smart black shoes in school (not trainers).  Velcro fastenings are the easiest for young children to manage themselves.  Boots may be worn to travel to school (e.g. in snowy or wet weather) and pupils should change into their school schools on arrival). Older pupils may change into trainers at break times if they wish.

Braithwaite School sweatshirts (£7.85) and polo shirts (£7.20) are available from school, along with PE t-shirts (£5.00) and school book bags (£6.24).


P.E. Equipment

For P.E. lessons, trainers, shorts (black or navy blue) and T-shirt (gold with school logo) will be needed for each session. Football boots may be worn when games are played on the field, but are not essential, except for football club. Track suits are useful for outdoor activities in cold weather.  It is recommended that pupils’ PE kits are kept in a drawstring bag on their peg, or in their locker, in case there is a change of plan from the usual routine, e.g. due to sports coaches visiting.

Long Hair - due to increased risk of spreading Head Lice we recommend that long hair is tied back at all times (for PE it must be tied back for safety reasons).


Jewellery / Make up / Nail Varnish

For safety reasons, children are not allowed to wear jewellery in school. Jewellery is defined as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, ankle bands, nose-studs or rings. We appreciate that some children have had their ears pierced and therefore the continued wearing of ear-studs is permitted, but not during P.E. or swimming activities. However we do ask that, if you are having your child’s ears pierced, you do so at the beginning of the school summer holidays so that they can be removed by the start of the Autumn term.  If your child cannot remove their earrings, please provide them with plasters to cover them. Watches should be clearly marked with the child’s name and we ask that all watches and fitness trackers (fitbit etc) are removed for P.E. lessons.  Make up and nail varnish should not be worn in school.
