We believe a smart, practical uniform is helpful and sets us apart from the crowd! Please ensure that all items of uniform are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
The uniform is:
- black school shoes (no trainers, boots or heels);
- dark grey socks or tights – white socks may be worn with summer dresses; dark grey trousers, tailored shorts, pinafore dress or school skirt;
- a plain white shirt (long or short sleeved);
- a royal blue knitted Pembridge School jumper or cardigan with an embroidered logo;
- an optional blue gingham summer dress which can be worn with white ankle socks and the school cardigan during the summer term;
- a school tie.
PE & Games:
We would like all children to wear black shorts/skorts for PE /Games. These need to be plain and must not be ‘cycling’ shorts or ‘fashion shorts’. KS1 and KS2 have a blue-t-shirt with the school logo KS2 have a ‘rugby’ style shirt for PE / Games. In the colder weather it is useful for children to have a dark coloured (navy blue or black) track suit. ‘Branded’ wear should not be worn. Sport specific equipment will be needed for some sessions e.g. shin pads, football boots. Staff will advise when this is required.
Children may wear their choice of trunks or costume and will need a towel. Written permission must be given for goggles to be permitted.
Our jumpers and cardigans are currently available online from School Trends: www.stparent.co.uk or School Bells Uniforms: Pembridge CE Primary School - Primary Schools - School Bells, The Uniform Experts (schoolbellsuniforms.co.uk). With the exception of jumpers, cardigans and ties, the uniform can be purchased from any supplier and this provides more flexibility for parents to make their own decisions and find their own ‘good deals’ and make their own choices about suppliers, quality etc.
There are ‘optional extras’ on the School Trends website e.g. book bags; school caps; additional PE kit; outdoor wet weather gear for Forest Schools, coats and fleeces.
Health & Safety Issues
Hair and jewellery: Long hair (on boys or girls) should be tied back at all times. Hair bands, bows and clips should be in school colours. In the interest of children’s safety, no jewellery is permitted in school. PE and playtime activities have resulted in quite serious injuries in some schools as a result of jewellery and it is better that it is left at home.
The PTFA occasionally run a ‘Recycled Uniform Shop’, where parents are able to purchase pre-loved uniform.
