Uniform (our team colours)
We rely on you, as parents, to ensure that your child wears the school uniform. Children really dislike being different and enjoy feeling part of the “Stratford Team”!
The required school uniform is as follows:
White polo shirt or collared shirt or
Grey or black trousers or shorts / grey or black pinafore dress or skirt
Blue / white checked / striped dress or skirt (summer/ hot weather)
We encourage the wearing of grey, black or white socks, or dark tights.
Children are encouraged to wear appropriate warm clothing for outdoor PE sessions in cold weather – this does not need to be school colours, just warm!
Shoes and clothes must be practical and safe.
Plain white t. shirt or school logo white t. shirt
Plain dark shorts or black leggings
Track suit (in cold spells)
Plimsolls / trainers
Swimming (KS2): Trunks or full costume (bikinis are not allowed), Towel
It is absolutely essential that all clothes are labelled. It is also essential that each child has a drawstring bag, clearly named, in which to keep his or her P.E. Kit. All uniform is checked for names at the beginning of each term.
A ‘Lost Property Basket’ is located in the ‘Glass House’ entrance in the new block. We try to return named items to the owner and not put them in the basket.

Children should be smart, clean and safe at all times.
Hair: Long hair must be tied back for health and safety reasons. This is essential during PE lessons but is encouraged in all activities.
Jewellery: Pupils may wear watches and a small pair of studs for pierced ears (in ear lobes only). Nose studs and other types of body piercing are not allowed. No other jewellery is allowed. In order to comply with L.A. Health and Safety guidelines, pupils are required to remove earrings for PE activities. If children cannot remove them, they are asked to cover them with tape.
