School Uniform


At Laddingford we take pride in how our pupils present themselves and have a practical and simple uniform for all children. Basic items like trousers, skirts, summer dresses and white shirts and polo-shirts can be purchased in any retail outlet as long as they conform to the general uniform guidelines. Having items with the school logo is optional, (sweaters, cardigans, PE shirts, book bags and PE Bags) these can be purchased via Brigade. School ties can be purchased from the School Office.

Labelling of uniform items

Please ensure that all items of your child’s school uniform are clearly labelled. Inevitably in the course of a school term items get lost or mixed up and we can avoid hours of fruitless searching by having clearly named clothes. Special labelling pens or generic or customised labels can be purchased in a number of retail outlets or ordered from the internet.


Jewellery, Make-up and Valuables

It is our school policy to discourage children from wearing jewellery during school hours. The exception is small stud earrings for children with pierced ears. However, for health and safety reasons, even these need to be removed during PE lessons. If your child is wearing stud earrings please ensure they are able to remove these. If you are planning to pierce your child’s ears, this should be done at the beginning of the summer holiday so they can leave them in for the required length of time.


Children are not allowed to wear any form of make-up including facial make-up, nail varnishes and perfumes. We seek parental co-operation in maintaining natural colours for hair and hairstyles. Styles containing beads or braids are acceptable where it is appropriate to hair types or cultural reasons. No extraordinary non-conventional styles. Shoulder length hair must be tied. If in doubt please ask Mrs Hitch.


Children should not bring any valuables into school as there is a high risk of loss or damage. It is up to the discretion of the teachers to confiscate those items until the end of the school day.


If any pupils have written permission from their parents to walk home, by themselves, after school they may bring in a phone to be left at the School Office during the school day.
