Primary Uniform

We are proud of our school and our students and we like to feel that they carry their identity with them into the community. Correct uniform should be worn at all times.

Following feedback from parents, we have reviewed our uniform supplier and have made some small updates to our school uniform. There will be no changes to the overall look or quality of the uniform, which forms an important part of our identity and of which we are very proud. These updates will come into effect from September 2018 but legacy uniform may be worn until July 2019. Samples of the updated uniform in school are available to view in school.
