Wrington Primary School

Uniform Policy

We pride ourselves on a smart appearance in school and we politely ask that all children wear the full Wrington Church of England Primary School uniform (this includes wearing polishable shoes, avoiding the extremes of hairstyle and refraining from wearing makeup or jewellery). 

 

Having a smart school uniform for all children:

  • Helps to create a feeling of community
  • Supports the principle of inclusion
  • Is suitable and appropriate for school activities
  • Promotes a sense of pride
  • Avoids the distraction or pressure of fashionwear

 

Purchasing Uniform

Uniform can be purchased from a variety of suppliers:

  • Online via our uniform provider Price & Buckland* (items with the school logo) by following this link: School Uniform
  • Supermarkets, department stores etc.(for uniform without the school logo).
  • Pre-loved/ second hand items are available from the school (PTA). We support sustainability through re-using uniform

 

*Please note that there is a small postal charge for items to be sent to a home address but items can be ordered and delivered for free to school.  Items are delivered to school on the 2nd and 4th working Monday of each month.
