North Petherton Primary School Uniform Policy

Our policy on school uniform is based on the belief that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in our school
  • Helps to create a sense of community and belonging towards the school
  • Identifies the children within the school
  • Supports our commitment to inclusion
  • Is practical, smart and designed with heath and safety in mind
  • Is considered good value for money by most parents


The School Uniform:

  • Blue sweatshirt/cardigan. Where possible embroidered with the school logo
  • White polo shirt
  • Plain black or dark grey trousers, shorts, skirts or dresses
  • Blue & white checked dresses, normally worn in the warmer weather


P.E. Kit

Children need a change of clothes for P.E. and a bag to keep the PE kit in at school. They should wear:

  • Black or navy PE shorts
  • House colour P.E. t-shirt
  • A pair of daps or trainers
  • For colder weather the children may wear black jogging bottoms/leggings and a royal blue sweatshirt.


For health & safety reasons, children are not permitted to wear earrings for P.E. Your child’s teacher will advise you when PE lessons take place, so that earrings can be removed. Additionally, long hair must be ties back.



Black shoes should be worn. For health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear shoes with platform soles, high heels or flip flops. If it is a wet or cold day and your child needs to wear wellies or warm boots to travel to school, please make sure they have normal school shoes to change into.


Jewellery, watches, hair ornaments, make-up and nail varnish

For health & safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery. The exceptions to this are earring studs in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance.

Children are required to remove any items during PE lessons to prevent them from causing injury. Please note: Teachers are not permitted to remove earrings.

Wrist watches may be worn but only for the purpose of telling the time.

Make-up and nail varnish should not be worn to school unless for an out of hours’ function, for example a school disco.

For health & safety reasons and to ensure it does not distract from learning, we advise that long hair be tied back.
