Our compulsory school uniform is an important part of school life and we expect all children to come to school in the correct uniform items, ready to learn.
Nearly all items are available from high street shops or supermarkets, with just our branded Cavendish school sweatshirt, polo shirt (choice of white or red) and PE top needing to be bought directly from our supplier via their online shop (see below).
The compulsory uniform for all year groups is:
- Black or grey trousers/skirt
- Socks or plain tights in a school colour i.e. white, red, black or grey
- White or red Cavendish branded polo shirt
- Cavendish branded sweatshirt
- Black shoes
In the Summer, children have the option to wear the uniform outlined above or they can wear grey shorts instead of trousers, or a red and white checked dress.
Jewellery and hairstyles
Children are not allowed to wear jewellery of any kind except small stud earrings and a watch. Any pupils with long hair should wear it tied away from their face. Pupils with short hair are not permitted to have their heads shaved, or to have tramlines or other designs cut into their hair. Hair bands/ties, scarves and bows should be also be plain and in school colours i.e. white, red, black or grey.
For PE, all children are required to wear the Cavendish branded PE shirt. All other items of PE kit, including plain black or grey tracksuit trousers or leggings and black trainers or plimsolls, are available in high street shops or from supermarkets.
Children are not allowed to wear jewellery during PE.
Wet and cold weather clothing
If it is cold or raining, please make sure that your child comes to school in appropriate clothing for the weather. If children walk to school in wellington boots, we expect them to have school shoes to change into once they arrive.
We also ask parents to ensure that your child comes to school in a warm, waterproof coat.
Warm and sunny weather clothing
In warm sunny weather, please apply sun cream to your child before they come to school as this is not something that staff are permitted to do. We also advise that children bring a sunhat and a water bottle.
All Cavendish (with logo) uniform is ordered by parents directly with our supplier via their online shop:
If you do not have access to the internet, please request a postal order form from the School Office.
