School Uniform and Equipment

Windmill Uniform

  • Red jumper or cardigan
  • White polo shirt
  • Black tailored trousers, shorts, black skirt or black pinafore
  • Red/white gingham summer dress
  • Plain black or white socks
  • Plain black low heeled shoes/boots - no heels

Jewellery is not part of the school uniform but children may wear simple stud earrings - your child must be able to remove these idependently for PE lessons. Children may also wear simple analogue or digital watches but not devices that have phone or internet connectivity.

Trainers, leggings or jeans are not part of our uniform code and must not be worn at any time.

If there is a compelling reason as to why your child cannot be in correct school uniform for that day you will need to inform us by letter. We only expect this to be short term and normal school uniform should be worn after this time.

Pupils will also need a full PE kit in school daily. This must include: black shorts, red or white plain or school logo t-shirt, black plimsolls, plain black jogging bottoms and trainers for outdoor sessions. If your child does not have kit in school, you will receive an email to notify you of this. Participation in PE lessons is statutory and it is important that pupils have the correct uniform to enable them to engage fully.

Children in Reception and Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 will need to use a book bag or small school rucksack to keep their books and letters in and their PE kit needs to be in a drawstring bag, both named. Larger rucksacks are not allowed as we do not have the storage space at school. The rucksacks that we allow need to be bought from school (they are a suitable size) and the red bookbag can be purchased from either school or elsewhere. Bookbags or a small school rucksack will be kept in each child’s drawer so must not exceed this size. By having these expectations for bags, we will ensure that the cloakrooms around school are safe for all children to access and will help us to avoid accidents.

The following bags are available from the office:

  • Bookbag with small handle (school logo)
  • Bookbag with strap (school logo)
  • Small rucksack (school logo)
  • Drawstring PE bag (school logo)
  • Drawstring PE bag (plain)

As part of the transition process to secondary school, we have purchased lockers for our Year 5 and 6 children (kindly partly funded by the RWSA). The Year 5 and 6 children will be able to bring any bag they choose as long as it fits into their locker along with their coat and PE kit. Lockers will be approximately 60cm high, 30cm wide and 45cm deep. We will also be allowing Year 5 and 6 children to bring a pencil case to school if they wish to; children are expected to write in black ink pen, not biro. Equipment should be named if possible and children are fully responsible for anything that they choose to bring to school. Year 4 and below do not need to bring any of their own equipment.
