Uniform

Our school colours are navy and gold with grey.

Items of uniform can be ordered through AnyWear Ltd (formally Garbmann). They can either deliver direct to home addresses for a charge, or they deliver once a month to the school free of charge, usually on the last Friday of the month.

Pupil Premium children are offered a free school hoodie.

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) have also set up an online facility where second hand uniform can be purchased; please visit their Uniformerly website here. Any items purchased will be delivered to the school office for collection. If you experience any problems when ordering uniform via the Uniformerly website, please email ccnmpta.uniform@gmail.com.

It is important that children come to school well presented and in the correct school uniform. We have worked hard to ensure that the cost of uniform is reasonable, with few branded items. 

On days when children have PE or attend a school sports club, they must wear their PE kits. On every other day they should wear their normal uniform. All uniform should be named, but it is vital that hoodies, sweatshirts, cardigans, and any coats the children bring in, are clearly named with the child’s full name. Unnamed lost property is disposed of.

However, children are not allowed to wear smartwatches to school that have any of the following functions: network connection (Wifi or 3G/4G/5G), data collection, ability to: send or receive messages or alerts, take photographs or videos, play music, play games, calculate (i.e. a calculator function).

Non-Compliance 

If a child is not wearing the correct uniform the child and the parents will be reminded, initially informally and only when the non-compliance is repeated, formally. In the case of repeated or serious non-compliance, the headteacher, or a person authorised by the headteacher, is permitted to ask a pupil to briefly go home to remedy breaches to the school’s uniform. 

If a child has grown out of their shoes and it is the last two weeks of the summer term, parents can ask for permission via the school office for their child to wear alternative shoes.
