Fordham Primary School


A school uniform gives a school a sense of identity,  belonging and pride. It also ensures all pupils are on an equal footing, provides good value for money and minimises conflict in the morning about what clothing should be worn!  The Governing Body strongly encourages pupils to wear school uniform; please adhere to these guidelines at all times.

We use Brigade and orders can be made online and delivered straight to your door. The website link for the uniform supplier is

Please note that plimsolls / joggers are not required for Reception pupils until the summer term. All children must bring a change of clothes for P.E. lessons.


  • Black or navy flat shoes / sandals (socks must be worn). No boots should be worn during the school day. In cases of adverse weather, appropriate boots can be brought to school in a named bag so children can change for play times.


  • Boys to wear swimming trunks / shorts
  • Girls to wear an all-in-one swimming costume (no bikinis)
  • All children must wear a swimming hat
  • Goggles are optional but national advice is that these should not be worn

Jewellery, such as bracelets or necklaces, should not be worn to school for safety reasons.   If a child has pierced ears, then small studs may be worn as long as the child is able to remove them when required to do so. Earrings must not be worn for PE lessons as serious injuries have been sustained as a result of contact between pupils wearing jewellery and other pupils, equipment or apparatus during physical activity.

Longer hair must be tied back for P.E. but we recommend that it is tied back at all times.

Please ensure that hair styles are appropriate for a school environment.  Hair accessories should also be plain.
