School uniform plays a key role in promoting pride, self-confidence, and a feeling of belonging within the student body. These factors contribute to students' wellbeing, removing the additional pressures of deciding what to wear and added stress of meeting the expectations of their peers.


Our Uniform

Children should come to school dressed in school uniform as outlined below.  


  • Grey/black skirt or pinafore
  • Grey/black trousers
  • White shirts/blouses/polo shirts
  • Red sweatshirts or cardigans
  • Plain grey or black summer shorts or short trousers
  • Red and white checked, or striped, summer dresses
  • Footwear should be sensible flat black shoes or trainers. Shoes or trainers should be plain black and not brightly coloured. 
  • Long hair, including long fringes, should be tied back with a coil or “ouchless” type hair band.


Children will also need:

  • PE kit of plimsolls (needed for apparatus work) white T-shirt and black shorts.
  • Games kit of warm tracksuit or something similar to wear when the weather is cold and outdoor trainers. Plain black sweatshirt and black jogging bottoms.
  • For safety reasons, long hair, including long fringes, should be tied back with a coil or “ouchless” type hair band during PE and earrings must be removed.
  • All clothes should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
  • Jewellery or make-up may not be worn in school. The only exceptions are watches and plain gold or silver studs for pierced ears.
  • Younger children may also require a change of underwear or spare uniform in case of accidents.

Dress Down Days

The school will have dress down days every half-term or so, to raise funds for specific things, such as school trips or to purchase scenery/props for productions or specific charity events. We will let you know in advance which days are to be dress down days.


Please note that non-branded uniform can also be purchased from a retailer of your choice. Our fantastic FIPS (Friends of Icknield Primary School) team often hold second hand uniform sales for parents to access cheaper, good quality school clothing.

An important part of children’s computing education is how to be safe online. We will continue our work in this area in lessons and through talking part in national E-Safety initiatives.


If you need any more information about keeping safe online or reporting issues please see the CEOP website, a great resource to support families and school. Resources can also be found on the NSPCC Website.
