Our School Uniform:
The school expects all its pupils to wear uniform, details of which are given below. All children should wear a style of clothes, which they can take off and put on without help for their PE lessons and for little children this means no awkward straps or lots of stiff buttons. Shoes should be chosen for safety at school, and, therefore, high or platform heels are forbidden.
Children with pierced ears may wear small stud type earrings which must be removed for P.E. or games lessons. No other type of jewellery may be worn.
PE and Games
Children will need to change into appropriate clothes for such activities, so that their movement is not restricted by ordinary clothing. All children will, therefore, require pumps or other suitable footwear for outdoor PE activity. Children in KS2 need to bring their own black outdoor tracksuit bottoms and jacket and white T-shirt.
Please note that these activities are an integral part of the curriculum of the school, and, therefore, are compulsory unless there is a valid medical reason for a child not to take part. Children should, therefore, have correct kit at school on PE or Games days.
Uniform can be purchased directly from Moses Schoolwear, based in Rochdale.
Water bottles and school ties can be bought from the school office.

- Grey skirt/culottes or tunic

Please note children in Nursery & Reception Classes do not need an outdoor PE kit.
KS1 come to school, on their allocated PE days, dressed in their outdoor PE kit. KS2 children will continue to get changed at school.
Hair styles and Hair Accessories
Hair should be tied back if long or clipped back if shorter. We do not allow statement hair styles in school, neither do we permit the wearing of hair accessories which are large, which hang around the face or which are particularly noticeable.
Shoes should be black and not trainers, boots may be worn when the weather turns colder, but we do ask that the children change when inside as it gets very warm in school.
Please ensure ALL items of clothing are labelled as we only keep lost property for a limited time, including packed lunch boxes.
The school offers good quality pre-loved uniform, PE kit items and a small number of coats on a regular basis. throughout the school year. This offer is open to all parents and carers to take with no charge. The dates of when the rail can be accessed in the Key Stage 1 yard is communicated to parents and carers through School Jotter and the newsletter.
Should you be in need of free uniform items at other times, please contact the school office.
