The Governing Body recently completed a review of our school uniform. As a result of this review, which involved consultation with parents, pupils and staff, they have decided to replace the current uniform.
The changes involve replacing the sweatshirt / hoodie with a navy v-necked sweater with embroidered school logo and replacing the red polo shirt with a white polo shirt embroidered with the school logo.
The PE Department will be replacing its white polo shirt with a navy blue polo shirt embroidered with the school logo.

Welsh Assembly School Uniform Grant
The Welsh Assembly Government has introduced a grant of £100 to assist families on low income with the purchase of school uniform.
The grant is available only to pupils transferring from primary to secondary school and is not available for any child already in attendance at a secondary school. It is also available for pupils aged 11 at the start of the school year attending a special school, special needs resource base or pupil referral unit.
Eligibility for uniform grant entitlement is provided for parents who are in receipt of certain support payments as per free school meal entitlement. The relevant support payments are:
- Income Support
- Income Based Job Seekers Allowance (IBJSA)
- Support under Part VI of the immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- Child Tax Credit (but not Working Tax Credit) with an annual income (as assessed by the Inland Revenue) not exceeding £15,575
- Guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
Parents who think think their children may be eligible for a School Uniform Grant should apply to the Local Education Authority.
