Your child will also need a school bag and a drinks bottle.

Use sew in or iron on name labels in EVERYTHING! 30 blue sweatshirts look the same and often pen becomes illegible or wears off after a few washes.

How much uniform to buy?

Many parents have asked for guidance on this.  Questions to ask;

  1. How messy are your children?
  2. How often do you wash?

We’d recommend having at least;

  • 3 polo shirts
  • 2 pairs of trousers/skirts/dresses
  • 2 sweatshirts/cardigans
  • PE kits – 2 sets (if PE days are consecutive)

Second Hand Uniform

At different points in the year Friends of Katherines and the Family Liason Officer will ensure that second hand uniform is available to buy from the school. This will, usually, happen during school events such as parents evening, fetes and end of half term periods. There may be further times that the school sells second hand uniform as the need arises. If you are struggling with the cost of uniform, please ask to speak to our Family Liason Officer who can provide help with uniform.

The school also welcomes good quality used uniform. If your child has out grown their uniform and you feel that this would do another a family a turn. Please send your used uniform to the school office, thank you.
