Learning together, we grow kind hearts and healthy minds


Preston School Uniform Policy


It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school- organised event outside of normal school hours. We provide a complete list of the items needed for our school uniform in our school information pack.


Our policy is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Promotes a sense of community and belonging towards the school
  • Is practical and smart
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money 
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind



On health and safety grounds  we do not allow children to wear jewellery to school.

The exceptions to this rule are:

  • ear-ring studs in pierced ears
  • small objects of religious significance

We ask the children to remove these objects during PE, games and swimming for health and safety reasons (following KCC guidance). If children are not able to remove their own jewellery then we advise these items to be removed before school.

The school advises parents who wish their children to have their ears pierced to do so at the beginning of the school holidays.


The role of the parents

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



The school uniform is:

  • Black trousers/shorts
  • Black shirt or pinafore
  • White shirt/polo shirt
  • Navy jumper, cardigan or sweatshirt
  • Black school shoes (no trainers)
  • Dresses- blue and white check (summer)

PE Kit

  • Summer/Winter- Plain black shorts
  • Winter- Navy tracksuit bottoms and navy hoodie (No zip up must be over the head)
