For new parents, we hope the following extract from our School Organisation Book will be of use:
"Infant children are expected to wear school uniform.  We believe that a school uniform is both practical and suitable and creates a feeling of pride in the school and a sense of belonging.  
When purchasing uniform please help your children to become independent by ensuring that they can manage the fastenings on their clothes - for example:
it is far easier to cope with  - school polo shirts rather than the traditional type of shirt/blouse that has numerous buttons; slip on shoes rather than lace up shoes.
Please mark all clothing and footwear, and other items, clearly with your child’s name.  Lost items cannot be identified unless they are named.

Uniform List:

Grey skirt, grey pinafore dress or grey uniform trousers (long or short)

Red or White polo shirt (long or short sleeved)

Red sweatshirt or red cardigan

Red and White check dress for the summer

Second hand uniform is available through the PTA uniform shop, which is held twice a term and the dates are notified via the school termly calendar and P.T.A. bulletins.
Clothing for P.E.:
Children take part in P.E. activities at least twice a week and it is necessary for them to be suitably dressed.  The children should be provided with the following P.E. kit:
T-shirt/short sleeved top Red or White
Shorts Red
Plimsolls  (please check fitting regularly)
Children need a change of shoes for wet days in the summer, and for most days in the winter.  Indoor shoes can be plimsolls that the children need in school at all times for P.E. lessons.  They will need a bag for their P.E. clothes.
We ask parents to remember that open-toed shoes are not practical for school and should not be worn.
Clothing for Practical Activities:
Please provide children with an overall to protect their uniform when they take part in messy activities.  A cut down man’s shirt is ideal."

Stevensons also supply optional items (fleece, t-shirt) for the Nursery children.  All the items feature the Nursery logo.
