St James' CE Primary School

St James CE Primary School

Uniform

All pupils are expected to wear school uniform.

The uniform has been chosen so that it is reasonably inexpensive to purchase, durable  and easy to obtain. A high standard of appearance is usually an indication of good discipline, self-awareness, and responsibility. These are positive points which we would want to emphasise to the growing child. The uniform comprises:

Boys - Winter
School royal blue polo shirt with school badge
School royal blue sweatshirt with school badge
Grey trousers (no jeans) or grey shorts
Grey socks 
Leather shoes (black - not trainers)

Girls - Winter
School royal blue polo shirt with school badge
School royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan with school badge
Grey skirt, pinafore dress or trousers (no jeans)
Grey socks or grey tights 
Leather shoes (black -  not trainers)

Boys - Summer

PE Kit

Tracksuit (preferably navy blue or black)


Watches may be worn, but the school cannot accept responsibility for any damage or loss that may occur.
In the interests of safety, the wearing of jewellery is not allowed. Only earrings of the ‘stud' type may be worn in plain silver or gold only. Studs must be removed for P.E. without exception by the child or covered with school tape. We recommend that ear piercing should take place at the beginning of the summer holiday so allowing time for healing. During PE watches must be removed and placed in the teacher's drawer. However, such items are not the responsibility of the school and we discourage children from wearing expensive jewellery or watches on the premises.

Long hair - when it reaches below the shoulders - must be tied up.  Fashion items or items which compromise safety are not permitted in children's hair.  Ribbons or hair accessories must be blue in colour and kept minimal. 

Make up and nail varnish are not permitted.  

Shoes should be sensible and comfortable (no trainers except for outdoor PE). Shoes with spiked or high heels should not be worn. Open-toed shoes are discouraged for Health and Safety reasons (crushed toes) and sling backs are not allowed.

All clothing should be clearly labelled, and outdoor coats should possess strong loops to ensure they can be hung correctly on pegs. A draw-string bag should be provided so that PE and Games clothing may be kept safely. Bags should be of a reasonable size, not the large holdalls produced by sports manufacturers. These are very difficult to store.

For outdoor games during cold weather sensible and appropriate clothing is required. Tracksuits are best. Football boots or trainers with a good grip for football and hockey are needed as well as thick socks. Gum guards and shin pads are also required for hockey.

Please note that PE kit needs to stay in school and will be sent home each holiday for washing. 

The following items are currently available to purchase via the school office: school polo shirts, school sweatshirts, school cardigans. school PE shirt, school book bag/back pack and PE bag.  School coats are optional. All our uniform is available from Skoolkit in The Meridian Centre, Havant.


The St James' Association organises a second hand uniform stall a few times each year.
