Sledmere Uniform

We are a "Uniform" School.  We believe a uniform looks smart, wears well and contributes to self-respect and a feeling of belonging to a school.  The uniform is practical and offers flexibility. As parents you we would like you to respect the school dress code when providing clothing for your children to wear to school. Children are encouraged to be smartly dressed and to adhere to the agreed dress code.  

Our uniform consists of:

White, blue or yellow polo-shirt/shirt or blouse (Polo shirts are available with logo).

School sweatshirt/cardigan with logo.

Black or grey school trousers (or tailored shorts)

Navy blue or grey school skirt/pinafore

White socks/grey, black or navy tights.  On Fridays children may wear bright coloured/patterned tights or socks.

Blue and white checked school dresses.

Sensible black or brown shoes (not trainers or boots)


Outdoor Clothing

Sensible outdoor coat deemed suitable for school wear

Boots/Wellingtons may be worn if changed on arrival at school.

Please do not purchase boots for indoor wear.

Logoed items can be purchased through the school. The school newsletters will have details of when orders are to be placed (normally half termly) or forms are always available from the school office.


Indoor PE

Plimsolls or trainers.

Plain shorts and school PE T-Shirt

Socks (especially if tights worn to school)


Outdoor PE


Spare socks

Track suit/warm clothing in cold weather

As far as possible, PE Kit should be brought to school each Monday and taken home on Friday, so that it is available as an emergency change of clothing. Spare underwear may be useful in some cases. All clothing should be named and stored in a named drawstring bag, or small sports bag. Large sports bags are not practical in the cloakroom.



Please note that children are expected to have appropriate hair styles. Extreme fashion cuts should be avoided and school may contact parents over inappropriate styles.



No jewellery is to be worn in school, except a wrist watch. If ear lobes are pierced, only single sleepers or studs are allowed but must be removed or covered for PE.

For Health and Safety reasons the school cannot take responsibility for the turning of earrings in newly pierced ears and suggests that any piercing takes place in late July, allowing six weeks for the healing process.
