Wearing school uniform encourages a pride in being a member of Gusford Primary School.  It ensures that children are dressed appropriately for all school activities. Uniform reinforces school identity and eliminates ‘brand’ fashion and stigma. Staff and Governors actively encourage the wearing of school uniform. 

Logo items of uniform are available to order from our supplier PMG Schoolwear https://pmgschoolwear.co.uk 

Many local supermarkets sell the grey trousers/skirts/shorts and summer dresses etc. Sainsbury’s and Asda both sell packs of bottle green polo shirts and they, along with Tesco, sell bottle green jumpers and cardigans. 

Parents are asked to send their children to school tidy and appropriately dressed for the weather of the day.

Dress Code for Gusford Primary School

Bottle green polo shirt

Bottle green sweatshirt, jumper, cardigan or fleece

Grey trousers, grey skirt or pinafore dress

Socks should be plain black, grey or white. Tights, if worn in the colder months, should be grey or bottle green. 

Black shoes (flat)

During warmer weather the following items can be worn:

Plain grey school shorts

Plain style school dress in green checks

Plain flat sandals with a back strap (black, brown, white or green) 

School shoes should be plain black, sensible and suitable for running and playing in the playground. In the summer months sandals or summer shoes may be worn, these should be as plain as possible and black, brown, green or white. High heeled footwear and ‘flip flop’ style sandals are not permitted as they are unsafe for the school environment. Many falls in school are caused by ill-fitting or inappropriate shoes.

Watches and plain stud earrings are the only items of jewellery which may be worn at school and these must be removed during P.E. and swimming lessons. Make up and nail varnish are not permitted. 

It is recommended for safety that long hair is tied back throughout the school day, hair accessories should be sensible and must be in school colours. Extremes of hairstyle are not acceptable.

We will always do our best to recover items that go missing, but unless they are clearly marked it is sometimes very difficult, with many similar items, to establish the correct owner.

Help with Uniform

We run several schemes to help with the cost of school uniform. If your child receives Pupil Premium then contact the school office and we will explain how this works.

We run a thrift shop in which good quality second hand uniform can be purchased or swapped.

We also run a 'coats4u' style scheme. New coats can be expensive. Let us know if you need a new coat and we will do our best to source a new one or good quality second hand coat.

If you are struggling financially more generally then please let us know and we can put you in touch with people who can help.
