There is no formal uniform at The Richard Clarke First School. The colour scheme is optional in line with LA Policy.
(Note: It is not the policy of the Local Authority to make compulsory the wearing of any distinctive clothing or uniform; but all pupils are required to attend school appropriately dressed and for the assistance of parents many schools have adopted guidelines on dress.)
The School has chosen to adopt the following colour scheme:
- Red sweatshirt (crew or V), cardigan, jumper (all with or without school logo)
- Grey skirts or trousers; Red/white summer dresses
- Red or white polo shirts or white shirts/blouses
- Dark school shoes; plain socks; plain tights in red, grey or black
- Red school bags with logo are available to purchase if desired
Other items which will be required:
- Swimming Kit (Key Stage Two)
- Indoor PE Kit (with clean, lightweight trainers, not pumps)
- Outdoor PE Kit (warmer clothes with outdoor trainers)
- Wellies and playsuits for outdoor play (Reception class only)
All items of clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s full name (not initials). Many items of uniform and prices are available from the school office.
Please note: Boots are not part of school uniform, school shoes should be worn in school at all times. If children need to wear boots on their walk to school, then they can change into school shoes on arrival. Thank you.
