School Uniform

All pupils at Woodcote Primary School are expected to wear school uniform as follows:


The uniform consists of:        

  • Grey skirt or trousers,
  • White shirt or blouse or a white polo shirt (see note below)
  • Royal blue school sweatshirt or cardigan.
  • Girls may wear blue and white check dresses in the summer
  • Shoes or sandals should be black or navy but not open toed and should be worn with socks
  • Royal blue school fleece (optional – for outdoor wear only)


PE kit consisting of:

  • white or navy shorts,
  • White T-Shirt (not

    their normal  school clothes),

  • Pair of plimsolls (indoor use) trainers (outdoor use)
  • A drawstring bag for their PE kit


Please note we are gradually phasing out the use of blue polo shirts but these may be worn if your child still has one.

School sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts and PE shirts with the school logo are available through the school office.

Woodcote Primary School’s uniform is intended to be smart, simple, functional and value for money. 


Standards of uniform are very high and we assume, by selecting Woodcote Primary School for your child, you will accept our policy and support us in maintaining these standards.


To clarify:

From September 2012, girls wishing to wear a skirt/dress must wear a skirt that is not shorter than 5cm above their knees.

No jewellery apart from a maximum of two stud earrings, one in the lobe of each ear.

No extreme hair styles or non-natural colour.  Make up and nail polish may not be worn.


It is the responsibility of parents to ensure their children come to school in correct uniform.


Staff will monitor that students are wearing correct uniform at all times. 

Non-uniform items will be confiscated.

Black soft shoes and other items of uniform can be borrowed from the school spare supplies and any clothing must be returned after being washed.  Pupils who refuse to change their clothing appropriately will need to be collected from school by their parents.


NOT acceptable:       Denim

Training shoes

Canvas shoes

Track suits


Jewellery, other than watches and stud earrings (only one in each ear)

Only exceptions (from a certain piece of uniform) will be if a student has a doctor’s note.

A note from parents is not acceptable.


The Headteacher’s decision on matters of uniform is final.
