At Preshute Primary School all our children take pride in their appearance and we believe that being smart shows that they are ready to learn.

Although not compulsory, our children are encouraged to wear the following recommended uniform:

School sweatshirt | Navy blue
Jumper or cardigan | Navy blue
Shirts/blouses | White or navy
Trousers/skirts| Navy or grey
Pinafores | Navy or grey

Girls may prefer to wear blue gingham dresses in the summer and boys may prefer to wear navy or grey shorts. Jeans are not permitted.

Jewellery is not allowed for health and safety reasons and children with pierced ears should wear studs.

Please ensure that all clothing is labelled (including shoes). Should your child mislay an item of clothing, the lost property box is situated in the cloakroom of Class 3.

Wearing P.E Uniform to School - Trial

Since September 2017 we have been trialling the children coming in to school wearing their P.E. kits on the day they have their P.E. sessions. The key benefits that we hope this will bring are:

  • More learning time as time won’t be wasted changing
  • Less lost clothes
  • More space in the cloakrooms

The children will spend all day in their PE kits so please ensure they are dressed appropriately for the weather.

P.E. sessions for 2018-19 academic year

The children’s P.E. sessions are as follows:

  • Reception - Monday and Tuesday
  • Year 1 - Monday and Wednesday
  • Year 2 - Monday and Wednesday
  • Year 3 - Tuesday and Thursday (note: when swimming starts, this will replace the Thursday P.E. session)
  • Year 4 - Tuesday and Thursday (note: when swimming starts, this will replace the Thursday P.E. session)
  • Year 5 - Friday (and Wednesday after swimming stops)
  • Year 6 - Friday (and Tuesday after swimming stops)

Art Wear

An apron or overall is useful for practical work. These are supplied by the school for Infants. An old shirt with shortened sleeves does very well for a Junior child.
