Our School Uniform
The school uniform has been adopted by the vast majority of families within school. We encourage pupils to identify with the school and ensure that they wear clothes that are suitable for school. By wearing the correct uniform, we are able to promote this.
We encourage parents to use the following link to our online service for purchasing uniform. Orders will be dispatched free of charge within 7 - 10 days to your home address.
We do hold a small amount of uniform on the school site although this is limited.
Foundation Stage 1
Red sweatshirt with school logo. White polo shirt or white polo shirt with school logo.
Black jogger bottoms - we feel believe jogger bottoms to be appropriate for the physical aspects of the Early Years Curriculum. Alternatively, pupils can wear black/grey school trouser/skirt.
Practical shoes/trainers (black)
During the summer months, pupils may wear black jersey day shorts instead of joggers or summer pinafore dress.
Hats and sun cream are required.
Foundation Stage to Year 6
Grey/black Trousers or shorts
White shirt or white polo shirt or white polo shirt with school logo
Red school sweatshirt (with or without logo)
Grey skirt or pinafore/gingham dress or grey/black trousers/culottes
White blouse or white polo shirt or white polo shirt with school logo
Red school sweatshirt or cardigan (with or without logo)
School shoes must be worn - these need to be practical and smart (no trainers allowed and no coloured logos). During the winter months, girls may wish to wear 'boots'. These must be appropriate for school and not boots of a 'fashion nature'.
Plain red T-shirt and plain black shorts
Trainers will be required for outdoor field work. A tracksuit or warm sweater/fleece will be required for outdoor work during the winter months. Alternatively, a hooded sports sweatshirt with 'Le Cateau School Sports' embroidered on the back is available for wear during outside sports sessions. (This is not part of normal daily uniform and can only be worn for PE). They can be purchased on line using the above link.
All PE kit should be kept in a drawstring bag/sports bag and be ready for use in school at all times. The children are encouraged to take kit home at weekends for washing.
We stock a range of alternative items that can be purchased (but are not compulsory) including;
Book bags for library and reading books (not available on line)
Fleece jackets with school logo
Shower-proof jackets with school logo
- Tracksuits should only be worn for PE lessons and not for general school wear
- Jeans are not allowed in school
- The wearing of jewellery, including earrings, is not allowed in school. Children with pierced ears are allowed to wear studs but these must be removed for physical activity. If you are intending to allow your child to have their ears pierced, we would advise that this is carried out at the beginning of the longer summer holiday.
Children with long hair are asked to have it tied back during the school day.
Fashion boots and high heeled footwear are not suitable in school. The wearing of training shoes during the normal school day is discouraged. Hairbands must be of a sensible nature and must not cause a distraction.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD HAS THE CORRECT PE KIT IN SCHOOL AS VALUABLE TIME IS LOST IF THE KIT IS NOT AVAILABLE.
ESSENTIAL - All school clothing should be marked with the child’s name.
