Ashlands Primary School

"Where every child has the chance to shine"

School Uniform

Our school jumper is emerald green with the red school logo and has been chosen for its practicality and comfort as well as to give the children a sense of ‘Ashlands’ pride and identity within the local community.

We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork and we therefore ask that they support our school uniform policy. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform and that it is clean, is in good repair and is named.

  • No jewellery/ wristbands to be worn except for the ‘Walk to School’ badges, small stud earrings and watches. We ask the children to either remove these objects during PE or cover them with a plaster to prevent the risk of injury.
  • Headbands Headbands/ bobbles should be plain
  • For the safety of the children and to prevent the risk of injury shoes with a heel, platform soles and flip flops are not allowed due to the danger of tripping whilst running in the playground. For the same reason we would prefer children not to wear open-toed sandals but if this is not possible we ask that they wear socks.

Children come to school in PE kit on their PE and PPA days. You will be notified at the beginning of the school year what these days are for your child’s class.

The only items of uniform that require the school logo on are jumpers and cardigans.

Other items of uniform are available with the logo but they may also be purchased from high street retailers without the logo e.g. plain white polo shirts and PE T Shirts

The uniform suppliers listed may sell other logoed uniform items such as rucksacks, coats and PE T shirts. These are not compulsory uniform items although you are of course free to buy them if you wish.

Second Hand Uniform Shop

Ashlands Second Hand Uniform Shop is now well established and run by a group of volunteers. There are some really excellent quality uniform clothes for sale at fantastically knock down prices. Items have been donated and we have made sure that everything that goes on sale is in good condition with all the profits going directly to Friends.

Uniform sales are held in the playground once a term but you are always welcome to pop into the school office to have a look and see if there is anything suitable.
