We encourage all children in our school to wear the school sweatshirt, which is available from the ‘School Trends’ website (see link below). If you would like to check sizes please see Mrs Lord in the office for your child to try samples on.

Along with the school sweatshirt, we encourage the children to wear dark grey trousers or skirts. In the summer months, the children may wear a school t-shirt, white or blue polo shirt or summer dress (blue and white). The majority of these items are available from chain stores.
Wearing school uniform helps children to have a sense of belonging to the school, and we hope it will also give them a feeling of pride in belonging to John of Gaunt Infant and Nursery School.
At John of Gaunt we are fortunate in having excellent outdoor facilities and we like the children to be able to access the field for most of the year, therefore a change of indoor shoes must be worn in school. Please ensure that school shoes are suitable and that children are able to put them on and take them off independently. If the grass is wet or muddy the children will need to wear Wellington boots.
For safety reasons no jewellery should be worn in school. If children have pierced ears, stud earrings are allowed only if parents accept responsibility for them. Children should not wear earrings on P.E. days.
Please ensure that all clothing and footwear is clearly named.
