School Uniform

All parts of our school uniform are statutory. It shows how proud we are to be members of St Andrew’s Benn C of E Primary School and that we are all equals.

Should all be clearly marked with first and second names

Nursery children should wear the school sweatshirt.

Uniform can be purchased from the Webb Ellis Shop (in town) or online with My Clothing.  As well as the uniform listed below, My Clothing also stocks name labels, a shower-proof reversible fleece with the school logo on and the school book bags.   Book bags are also available from the school office £7.50.

Children may have short hair but we do not allow any shaved patterns or lines.  The braiding of hair is permitted, provided that any colours that are weaved into it are only of a natural hair colour (i.e. a shade of black, brown, blonde or ginger) and that there is not an extreme different between this and the child’s natural hair colour.



Children are not permitted to wear nail varnish or any other types of make-up or glitter.


Children in Year 3 and 4 go swimming at the Queens Diamond Jubilee Centre.  Swimming lessons are part of the National Curriculum.  Your child should take a swimming costume; a towel and a weekly payment to cover the cost of transport, not the lessons.  These payments should be sent into school in an envelope clearly marked with your child’s name and the title ‘Swimming Money’.


Any children who do not wear the correct uniform will need to change into the spare clothing and shoes we keep in school.
