School Uniform

Smarden Primary School

School Uniform Policy

It is our policy that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos.  We also believe it is important that certain activities are facilitated by specialised and appropriate clothing when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.  We provide a complete list of the items needed for children’s school uniform in this policy and in our school prospectus.

Our policy for children’s school uniform is based on the belief that a school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  • is practical and smart
  • identifies the children with the school
  • is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be)
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind.

Our colours are yellow, green and white and the uniform is as follows:


  • White shirt with green school tie *
  • Green Jumper, with yellow trim *
  • Grey trousers or grey shorts
  • Green book bag with school logo *
  • Plain Grey or Black socks and suitable flat black shoes (not boots)


  • White blouse or shirt (with green school tie)*
  • Green jumper or cardigan, with yellow trim *
  • Grey skirt, grey trousers or grey pinafore dress
  • Green gingham dresses may be worn in the summer term
  • Green book bag with school logo *
  • Plain Grey/Green or White socks/tights and suitable flat black shoes (not boots)

For PE all children need

  • Green polo T-Shirt with school logo 
  • Black PE shorts 
  • Black “Zoodie” with school logo
  • Black tracksuit bottoms (no logos/stripes)

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school.
