Wakefield Uniform Exchange

Good quality pre-loved uniform is available from the following uniform exchange initiatives:

Children are not required to change their footwear indoors, however we would encourage children to make sure their shoes are clean so that dirt and mud are not brought into school. In the winter, boots or wellingtons may be used for break times and walking to/from school, with a change of suitable shoes for inside. During the warmer weather, children are encouraged to wear sun hats and suntan lotion for school.

Nail polish and / or false nails should not be worn by pupils during term time.

P.E Kit

  • Burgundy round necked T shirt (with or without the school logo) School Logo tshirt can be purchased from Better and Bright, Pontefract indoor market.
  • Plain black/Navy PE shorts
  • Bare feet for indoor PE
  • Trainers for outdoor PE- any colour
  • A plain navy or black tracksuit for outdoor PE during the colder weather- No logos or hoods on jumpers/jackets

You will be informed of your child’s PE days by the class teacher. We expect children to come to school wearing their PE kit on their PE days.

Children should not wear jewellery of any kind during PE lessons or sporting events. Watches and stud earrings should be removed prior to PE lessons. Long hair should be tied back securely for physical activity.

Please ensure that all coats, items of uniform and PE kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name so that they can be easily returned if they are mislaid. There is a lost property box/basket situated in the main entrance.


Necklaces, bracelets and rings should not be worn for school for health and safety reasons and because of the risk of them being lost or damaged. Small stud earrings and watches may be worn, but must be removed prior to PE lessons. The staff at school are not permitted to remove earrings. If you are planning on having your child’s ears pierced, we would advise that this takes place during the summer holidays.
