School Uniform

School Uniform 2023

We recognise that the rising cost of living can put a strain on families and hope to help with this whilst adhering to the Government guidelines that ‘encourage schools to have a uniform as it can play a key role in:

  • promoting the ethos of a school
  • providing a sense of belonging and identity
  • setting an appropriate tone for education.’


The guidelines also suggest that ‘schools should keep the use of branded items to a minimum and make pre-used uniform available for parents to acquire’. With this in mind, please see the information below:


Whitley Lodge First School Uniform

Reception – Year 4

  • Royal blue school sweatshirt/cardigan with the Whitley Lodge school logo
  • White blouses / shirts / polo shirts
  • Grey skirts / pinafore dresses / shorts / trousers
  • Blue gingham dresses can be worn in the summer term
  • Black shoes– should be plain black and easy to clean.
  • Royal blue book bag or plain backpack – just big enough to fit an A4 folder


On their designated PE day (s), children come to school in PE Kit:

  • white T-shirt
  • black shorts/joggers (if you already have blue, these can be worn until they need replacing)
  • plain black or white trainers (preferably unbranded or one colour including logo)
  • waterproof jacket for outdoors.


Please note that we only ask for the school logo on school sweatshirts/cardigans. These can be purchased from Anne Thomas. You can buy these pre-printed or source them from another supplier and Anne Thomas will add the logo for a minimal cost. School logos on other items of clothing are optional.

Pre-used uniform items are made regularly available, and this is shared via text. Contact the school office if you want to have a look at the items at any other time.
