School Uniform


Second hand uniform:

From September 2023, we are hoping to offer an option to buy second-hand school uniform. If you would like to donate (offload) any uniform that your child has grown out of, please send it to school.  

Alternatively, if you would like to purchase any second hand school uniform, please speak to Mrs Reeson or Mrs Howitt.

School Uniform Policy
St. Peter's C of E Primary & Nursery School suggests that all pupils wear the school uniform to ensure equality. No child should be singled out for having 'better' or 'worse' clothes than another, and the wearing of a school uniform ensures this. 

Our school uniform comprises of the following:

  • Navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan. Please note that plain navy blue jumpers, sweatshirts or cardigans are perfectly acceptable. Clothing with the school logo is available from Uniform Direct in Gainsborough. Hoodies are not permitted as school uniform, although they may be worn for PE. Hoodies with the school logo are available from Uniform Direct and can also include embroidered initials which is always very useful.
  • White polo shirt, formal long or short sleeve shirt or blouse
  • Grey trousers, shorts, skirt or pinafore dress
  • Shoes should be in a black, flat style for both boys and girls. Please do not send your child to school in trainers – they are not appropriate for growing feet!
  • Socks or tights should be white, grey, blue or black.
  • In summer, blue and white gingham dresses may be worn but these are optional.
  • ​Hair bands, grips and bobbles should be in school colours please - white and/or navy blue. Spot, check and stripe patterns are allowed provided they are white and navy blue. Scarves only to be worn around the head or in the hair for medical or religious purposes.
  • No jewellery should be worn in school. In the case of pierced ears, ear-rings should be studs. These must be removed by your child for P.E. and swimming for reasons of health and safety. Members of the school staff are not allowed to remove or replace ear-rings.
  • Nail varnish should not be worn in school. Parents will be asked to remove nail varnish in the evening. If children continue to wear nail varnish to school despite being told to remove it, they will be asked to stand by the wall at playtime. This is an incentive to follow the school rules and has been introduced as a sanction for a minority of individuals.
  • It is requested that haircuts and styles be appropriate for school. Please could children refrain from having their hair dyed unnatural colours or shaved into patterns. The school reserves the right to send a child home if their hair style is inappropriate for a primary school setting.


For P.E., children require:

  • Navy blue polo shirt. Clothing with the school logo on can be purchased from Uniform Direct in Gainsborough.
  • Navy blue shorts - NOT CYCLING SHORTS
  • Trainers
  • School jumper or navy blue hooded jumper or sweatshirt style jacket. School hoodies are available from Uniform Direct - includes school logo and embroidered initials (optional)
  • Blue tracksuits may be worn for outdoor P.E. lessons during cooler weather.
  • Navy blue leggings are allowed - not black


For swimming lessons, children require:

  • Swimming trunks (not shorts) 
  • One-piece swimming costume (no bikinis or tankinis) 
  • Towel
  • Ear-rings must be removed

Please ensure that all swimming kit is sent into school in a named bag.


One school swimming lesson costs £8.45. Please bear this is mind if you choose to allow your child to have their ears pierced and they are unable to swim.

Six weeks of non-attendance costs the school £50.70. I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a considerable amount of money that could have been spent on something else.
