Uniform Information

School Uniform


Everyone at our school wears school uniform which was designed by the pupils.  It looks smart, helps children to have a sense of belonging and pride in our school and presents a positive image to the wider community.


Our school uniform is:

 Navy jumper, sweatshirt or cardigan

  Navy blouse, shirt or polo shirt with the school logo

  Grey trousers / skirts / pinafores

  Blue gingham checked summer dress

  Black, suitable, and safe shoes – No Trainers


Reversible coats and fleeces in navy, navy polo shirts, and book bags are also available – all with our school logo. Sample sizes are available in school and order forms are available from the office.


Recommended clothing for PE and Sport

Indoors – shorts, T-shirt, plimsolls

Outdoors –track suit, or leggings and sweatshirt, T-shirt, plimsolls or preferably trainers.

Swimming – trunks / costume and towel

Our uniform suppliers do provide a bargain PE package with a bag. However, track suits and jogger bottoms and bathers are  available more cheaply from large local supermarkets.


Please make sure that:

  All uniform is marked with your child’s name.

  Young children wear easily fastened coats and shoes.

  Shoe lace tying is a skill learned and practiced regularly at home!

Please note:  If children arrive in school wearing incorrect uniform, then parents/carers will be notified.  

The children will be given the item of uniform to change into and returned at the end of the day. If the child refuses to change into the borrowed uniform, the parent carer will be contacted.


 If you have any concerns regarding uniform then please speak to your class teacher or see the Headteacher.



Jewellery wearing is not encouraged in school. Children may only wear a watch and a single, small, stud ear ring in either ear. Any other piercings are not acceptable. Jewellery must be removed for all PE, sport and swimming and it is best if this is done at home.


We advise parents to schedule ear piercing for the beginning of the six weeks holidays so that they have time to heal before school starts.


School will accept no liability for any items of lost jewellery.

Make-up and Nail Varnish

The wearing of make-up and nail varnish is strictly prohibited.  If this is breached, then your child will be asked to remove it and parents and carers will be notified.

Hair Accessories/Styles

Please ensure that any bows or bands are of appropriate size - no bigger than 2 inches for bows.  Large Jo-Jo bows are banned and your child will be asked to remove it.  Long hair should be tied back. We do not allow shaved sections of hair.  



We, the governors at Snape Wood primary, believe that all children in our school should wear uniform when attending school, or when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours. We ask children to wear school uniform in order to take pride in their personal appearance.

Aims and objectives

We believe school uniform:

  • Identifies the children with the school
  • Supports our commitment to inclusion
  • Prevents children from wearing ‘fashion clothes’ that could be distracting in class
  • Is practical, smart and designed with health and safety in mind
  • Is considered good value for money by most parents.
