Castle Primary School

Uniform & Appearance 


We have a uniform expectation which shows the children are part of Castle Primary School. If you are in the team  - wear the uniform!  We believe children should have 'different' clothes for school and home -so they know they are 'ready to learn'. More details about our uniform are below.

In terms of appearance we please ask:

  • longer hair is tied back 
  • No unnatural hair colours / dyes 
  • Only simple stud earrings are worn (and removed or covered for PE lessons) and no other jewellery (unless for religious reasons) 
  • No make-up (including acrylic or painted nails) 
  • No hoodies  - even for outdoor PE
  • No team football kits - plain t-shirts for PE please (this is different for clubs)
  • If children have PE and a  sports club on the same day they can either wear their PE kit for club or bring a different kit (but must have their PE kit for lessons)


Please ensure all items are clearly named.

All uniform can be bought from clothing outlets or supermarkets.
