It is the governors’ policy that all children should wear the agreed school uniform as listed below:

Plain Grey trousers
Plain Grey knee length shorts
Plain Grey knee length skirt or knee length culottes
Plain Grey knee length pinafore
Plain grey or white socks (Ankle or knee length not trainer socks)
Sensible black school shoes with laces or velcro
A unisex fleece is also available but this is an outdoor item of clothing and should not be used instead of a school sweatshirt
In summer a blue & white gingham dress may be worn (this MUST be a dress and not a playsuit or culottes)
Blue, white or grey girl’s hair accessories must be practical (no fashion accessories)
Trainers, open toed sandals and boots are not part of the school uniform.
Blue Logo PE top
Blue Logo PE Hoodie (Children may wear their school jumper or cardigan)
Plain black jogging bottoms
Plain black leggings
Plain black shorts
Plain black knee length cycle shorts
White or grey socks
Children need a swimming costume and towel, when they have an opportunity to swim.
A swimming cap is required if your child has long hair. Swimwear should be brought to school in a separate waterproof bag, sensible size please due to lack of space. Goggles can only be worn if a signed permission slip is received. Children are advised not to take talcum powder into the changing rooms.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT ALL CLOTHING IS CLEARLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.
We have two main uniform suppliers, Moses and Ann’s Childrenswear
5a Union Street, Bacup, OL13 0AA.
21-23 Oldham Road, Rochdale OL16 1UA
Each shop has a full range of stock items and fitting rooms. If anyone has any problems with sourcing the uniform please inform the school office.
Hairstyles and colouring: Parents should be aware that we do not permit extremes of fashion in students’ hairstyles. Hair colouring is not permitted. Close shaved heads, any shorter than a number 2 and patterns cut into hair are not acceptable. Very short hairstyles including extreme hairstyles (e.g. where some hair is very short and the rest isn’t) are not acceptable. Students who have shoulder length hair, or longer, may be required to tie it back for health and safety reasons and/or if it obscures the face.
Jewellery is not permitted in school. Earrings, bracelets and necklaces must not be worn.
If parents require their children’s ears to be pierced this MUST be done at the beginning of the summer break. This will give the required healing time to enable the earrings to be removed before attending school. Watches can be worn but children must be able to remove their own watch for PE. (Smart watches/ watches with games or cameras are not allowed)
