Due to the cost of living crisis seeing day-to-day costs increasing exponentially, we have taken the decision as a school to no longer request that parents buy expensive items of uniform displaying our school logo. Instead, we recommend that you buy items from local suppliers and supermarkets, who often stock very reasonably priced uniform items.
While uniform in our school isn’t compulsory, adhering to our school colours is preferable as it gives the children a sense of belonging alongside their peers and plays a key role in promoting pride and self-confidence while creating a level playing field among all students.
Our uniform recommendations are:
Grey or black pinafore / skirt / trousers / shorts
White or red polo shirt
Red sweatshirt or cardigan
Grey or white socks or tights
Our PE recommendations are:
Red or black shorts or tracksuit bottoms
White or red plain t-shirt
Second-hand uniforms are available from WISPA (the school's PTA) and on the school pre-loved bookcase in the foyer near the school office. If you don't see the sizes you need, speak to the office and we will contact WISPA on your behalf to get the sizes you need delivered to the school.
School Bags/ P.E. Bags and School Caps
The only logo items that we currently stock are the red Icknield Book bag (£4.50), PE bag (£3) and Summer baseball cap (£4.50). Once your child has joined us in school and a School Gateway account has been set up for them, you will be able to purchase all three of these items via their School Gateway account. Once you have ordered and paid for the item(s), they will then be sent round to your child’s class over the following couple of days for them to bring home.
Pupil Premium funding benefits
If your child is entitled to Pupil Premium funding due to specific benefits you receive, you are entitled to a free book bag and PE bag for your child at the beginning of each school year. In order to assess whether your child is entitled to this funding, please go to the following link and complete the short form. https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/ufs/CHSERV_FSMREG.eb?ebd=0&ebz=1_1679485269502
If it returns a positive result, school will be notified immediately and we will be able to add your child to our Pupil Premium list. Please note that you will need to complete a separate application for every child you have in school as it covers the individual and not the family.
