Henley Primary School

School Uniform

The school colours are red and navy, and listed below are the items of uniform which your child is encouraged to wear.  These are suitable for the varied activities in a primary school.

Please label and name all items of shoes, clothing and water bottles that come into school.

Sweatshirts and cardigans embroidered with the school logo are available from Brigade but this is not compulsory. Details for Brigade can be found below.  Non-branded uniform can be bought more cheaply from many supermarkets or the high street. 

Each term, we make good quality second hand uniform available. This is to reduce the number of uniforms our families have to buy new and to stop old uniforms going to landfill. We ask families to bring in any good quality second-hand uniform and this is made available for families to take what they need, free of charge. 

If your child wishes to have their ears pierced, the best time to get this done is at the beginning of the summer holiday so that the ears have time to heal. Children should be able to remove their earrings themselves or not wear them on the days that they have PE. Tape is only used to cover ears as a last resort and should not be encouraged.
