Items marked with a (*) are available through school and from the “Uniform & Leisurewear” shop in Garstang. They are also available via their website:


We are proud of our School Uniform, and children must wear it. Obviously there will be the odd occasions when a yoghurt pot explodes or growth spurt renders your child beyond the size bought, in these cases allowances are made for temporary solutions!



We ask that children’s footwear is appropriate for school – no trainers except on Active Uniform days and certainly no shoes with high heels, or flimsy or loose fitting sandals or shoes. This rule is in place for health and safety purposes.


PE Kit

Children will still need to have a PE kit available in school at all times in case it is needed for physical activities indoors. This kits consists of:     Plain t-shirt; shorts (not cycling shorts) and pumps/plimsolls



We sell a shoulder bag that is useful for all children. We ask that all Infant children use these for ease of organisation in the classroom. Every new Reception starter in September will receive their first bag.



The school, on the grounds of safety, is also not the place for jewellery.  If a child has pierced ears, then we insist that small unobtrusive studs be worn. These MUST be plain flat or small ball studs with no stone set into the design.


We ask that if you intend to have your child’s ears pierced, then please have it done at the start of the long summer holidays as the wearing of ear jewellery restricts their involvement in P.E. sessions. This rule also applies to other facial piercings. We also request that any hair equipment (headband, bow, clip, etc.) is small, unobtrusive and plain coloured, preferably blue.



We ask that the children do not have hair styles which are over fashionable, provocative or can be construed as posing a danger to self or others. This includes mohicans, beads, tramlines or dyed hair. School is neither a place for this nor do we believe is it appropriate for primary school age children. Our experience tells us that such styles can have a detrimental impact on the child’s learning. If your child does come to school with such a style, they may be asked to have it changed or removed.
