Frith Manor School

Uniform and other clothing

On this page you can find information about the uniform, sport clothing and other items which we would like children to wear when the come to Frith Manor School.

The uniform requirements are different in Little Acorns Nursery, Nursery, Reception, KS1 and KS2 and full details are provided below for each age group.

With our uniform we want to instil a pride in appearance and a community feeling of belonging to our school.  It is important that all families see the importance of this and support this aspect of life at Frith Manor. 

Whilst we encourage all children to express themselves during their time at Frith Manor, the school uniform should not be used as a tool to ‘air’ their creativity.   We have many non-school uniform days where children are allowed to wear clothing, footwear and hair accessories of their choice.

Little Acorns Nursery for 2 and 3 Year Olds

Children attending our Little Acorns Nursery are invited to wear T-Shirts with the cute Little Acorn logo.  These are available to purchase direct from the school.

Nursery

Nursery children are very active in their learning.  They need to wear clothes which are easy care for and easy wear.  Easy to wear means clothes the children can manage themselves e.g. elasticated waist trousers, leggings or jogging bottoms are ideal.

We do provide aprons for painting and waterplay however it is likely your child will get something on their clothing in the course of their active learning. Do not send your child in wearing special or expensive clothes.

There is a nursery uniform – although it is not compulsory – navy sweatshirt, navy jogging bottoms and a blue polo shirt.   

Children will also require a Book Bag (used each Friday) and a full set of spare clothes on their peg; in case of accidents or wet weather.

Please ensure all items of clothing are marked in some way with your child's name.

Footwear

Children should wear black school shoes for school. 

Plain black short boots may be worn when the weather is cold.  If we experience snow then suitable footwear is encouraged: snow boots, wellingtons. We ask that children bring school shoes to change into when inside.

Children are not allowed to wear heeled shoes, ‘Ugg’ style boots, Doc Martins boots, knee-high boots, trainers, sandals or crocs.

Coats and Bags

'Be bright, be safe, be seen' is an important message for children and parents especially during Autumn and Winter. When the clocks go back dark early evenings arrive and this means that suitable choice of outer clothing and accessories can help keep children safe by helping them be easily seen by drivers. 

  • Wear brightly coloured coats or fluorescent hi-vis jackets that show up well in and at dusk, bad weather and shorter daylight hours cause poor visibility, so make sure you can be seen
  • Wear reflective gear if out after dark to make sure you can be seen in car headlights
  • Clip-on reflectors, arm bands and stickers on clothes or school bags improve visibility, reflective strips can be bought to stick on bags and clothes.

Accessories

Children should not wear brightly coloured or oversized hair ribbons etc.  They are a distraction in the classroom and during assembly time.
