PE Kit

  • Coloured house t-shirt or plain t-shirt of the same colour of house (no logos or patterns)
  • Plain black shorts
  • Plain or school logo black tracksuit

  • No earrings

Ensure that  you and your child are aware of the days they have P.E. Your child will come to school dressed in the correct P.E kit (all items clearly labelled)every time they have P.E. If a child comes to school dressed in their P.E kit on the wrong day, parents/carers will have to bring their school uniform to school to get changed. Regularly check labels as children might take off their sweatshirts at times.


Other Equipment needed

  • Your child will also need a school bag 

School Uniform Shop

You can buy all uniform, with the logo on, from Top Form in The Stow, Harlow.

90-91 The Stow,
CM20 3AP

Tel:01279 434813

Labelling Clothes

Use sew in or iron on name labels in EVERYTHING! 30 red sweatshirts look the same and often pen becomes illegible or wears off after a few washes! Please check your child's uniform and P.E kit regularly as we cannot spend time searching for lots property. 

If your child is in Reception or cannot do their own laces up, buy shoes with Velcro straps until your child is confident doing buckles for laces.

How much uniform to buy?

Many parents have asked for guidance on this.  Questions to ask;

  1. How messy are your children?
  2. How often do you wash?

We’d recommend having at least;

  • 4 polo shirts
  • 2 pairs of trousers/skirts/dresses
  • 2 sweatshirts/cardigans
  • PE kits – 1 set is usually enough as children keep them in school and they only come home for washing at the end of each half term.
