Cardigans - £13
Polo Shirts - £8
PE Shirt - £5.50
From the office:
Book Bag with strap - £8


Jewellery should not be worn in school. Any child with pierced ears should wear studs only and these will need to be taped or removed for PE. Watches will need to be removed for P.E. and should be named or be easily identified.

Art and Craft

It would be helpful if an old shirt or suitable overall could be sent to school to protect your child's clothing during these activities.



 Physical Education

Children are allocated to a 'house' when they are in year 1, up until that point they should wear a white PE t-shirt. Once they know which house they are in you can choose to purchase a school PE t-shirt of the relevant colour, displaying the logo. Unfortunately we do not allow children to wear a coloured t-shirt other than the school version.

Children should wear their PE kit to school on the days their class have a PE session. 

  • White or school logo house colour t- shirt (red, blue, green or yellow)
  • Royal or navy blue shorts
  • Trainers (years 1-6, not needed for Reception children)
  • Plain tracksuit in a dark colour


Items of clothing, with the school logo, are available on line here or in person at Morleys Schoolwear, 446 Nottingham Rd, Chaddesden, Derby DE21 6PE.
