At Little Sutton Primary school, we encourage children to take pride in their appearance and remind them that, whilst wearing school uniform, they are ambassadors for our school. Therefore, it is imperative that children attend wearing the appropriate uniform.
This school takes seriously its legal obligation to avoid unlawfully discriminating against any protected characteristic and aims to ensure that the uniform policy is as inclusive as possible.
This school is committed to ensuring that its school uniform is affordable and accessible to all pupils and does not place an unreasonable financial burden on parents.
Most items of school uniform can be purchased from high street stores e.g. Asda, Tesco, Marks & Spencer etc.
Gogna Schoolwear is our main supplier of school uniform for sweatshirts and other items with the school logo on. Uniform can also be purchased from Clive Mark Schoolwear based in Boldmere and Crested Schoolwear.
You may of course purchase a sweatshirt of the same colour from any other source you wish, with or without logo.
Parents can donate their ‘Nearly New’ uniform to Acorns Children’s Hospice in Mere Green which are then available for purchase by other families.
Government or local charity funding towards the cost of uniform may also be available. Please contact the school office for further information.
Staff members are permitted to discipline pupils for breaching this policy in accordance with the school’s Behaviour Policy. In such instances, parents will be notified.
The basic colours of our school uniform are grey, white and turquoise.
- Grey trousers (long or short), grey skirt or pinafore dress
- White blouse, shirt or polo shirt
- Turquoise pullover, sweatshirt or cardigan
- Summer – turquoise/blue and white gingham or striped dresses may be worn during the summer period
- Black school shoes
- Grey or white socks or grey tights
- House colour T-shirt*

*you will be advised of your child’s House and its corresponding colour at the Induction Session.
Children need to bring a painting/craft overall to school. This item may well be an old, adult size shirt and there is absolutely no need to buy a special overall.
School policy is that children do not wear jewellery to school, although watches are permitted. If your child has pierced ears, then we request that they only wear small studs. Please ensure that these are removed before coming to school on days when your child has PE or Games.
Book bags and water bottles
Book bags can be purchased from the school office.
All children are provided with a school water bottle free of charge when they start school; replacement bottles and caps are available from the school office for a supplementary cost.
LABELLING AND LOST PROPERTY
It is important that all items of clothing, footwear and school bags are labelled clearly with the child’s name.
Lost items, if named, will be returned to the child. Unnamed items will be taken to the lost property cupboard beside the Y4 cloakroom entrance door. All lost property is retained for at least one week and disposed of periodically if left unclaimed. Notice will be given in this event, allowing parents and carers the opportunity to claim lost items before disposal.
CHANGES TO UNIFORM
Parents and pupils will be consulted over any changes to school uniform.
