The right kind of clothing encourages the right attitude to school and work. We at Cawston Primary Academy believe that children should wear their uniform with pride and enjoy a sense of belonging. Our school uniform consists of:

  • White polo shirt.
  • School red sweatshirt/cardigan or red jumper/cardigan.
  • Grey or black trousers or skirt.
  • Red school dress for girls in the summer.
  • Grey or black shorts for boys in the summer.
  • Black school footwear (no trainers please).
  • PE Kit: red shorts, white polo, plimsolls, black track suit, trainers.
  • Outdoor Clothing – wellies, waterproof  trousers & hooded jacket.

Please do not send your child to school wearing jewellery. Jewellery can easily be lost or cause injury to other children. Children with pierced ears should only wear studs which must be removed for PE activities and swimming. Children should not come to school with any other kind of body piercing because of the danger of accidents in the school environment. A child breaking this rule will be asked to remove their rings or studs or will be sent home. If your child is unable to remove/replace his/her own earrings for PE they should not wear them on PE days.

Long hair must be tied back for school. We do not allow fashion haircuts, shaves, colours or styles.

Children are expected to change into suitable clothing for P.E. and games. For P.E. children will be expected to wear red P.E. shorts and a white vest or t-shirt. In the hall for gymnastics and dance plimsolls (not trainers) or bare feet permit freedom of movement and maximum safety on the apparatus. Black track suits & trainers may be worn for outdoor PE. For games, the top classes may wear football kit for football and hockey with either football boots or hockey boots. Normal P.E. kit with trainers or plimsolls should be worn for netball.

Uniform and PE kit is available online at

The School Office also has a small selection of new and second hand uniform available.
