Welcome to Redgate Community Primary School

‘Achievement Through Inspiration’

School Uniform

We are proud to look smart in our uniform




It is the policy of the school that all children should wear the full school uniform and parents/carers are therefore requested to co-operate fully with this policy.

The wearing of uniform is encouraged to promote a sense of pride, a sense of belonging, assumed equality, and for Health and Safety.

Please remember to label all items of school uniform.

Please note:
  • Any child with long hair should bring in a bobble from home, to tie it back for all PE and Games activities. 
  • Jewelery must not be worn during any activities
  • If for any reason a child cannot take their earrings out, then plasters must be provided from home to cover their earrings.
  • Children are not permitted to swim with earrings in. 
  • If you are considering having your child's ears pierced, the best time to have this done is at the beginning of the summer holidays.


Foundation Stage Uniform (Nursery and Reception)


As our curriculum is very active (and messy!!!) the children in Little squirrels and Reception wear a uniform which is more suited to being active (messy) and outdoors.


  • Red polo shirt with logo
  • Blue jumper with logo
  • Grey/black tracksuit bottoms or leggings
  • Plain black trainers/shoes
  • Waterproof suit
  • Wellington boots


As we are outdoors in all weathers throughout the day our early years children need to keep full waterproofs (available with the school logo) and wellington boots in school.
