William Cobbett Primary School

School Uniform

Children are expected to wear school uniform at all times in school. The school colours are purple and grey.

ALL ARTICLES OF CLOTHING, INCLUDING SHOES, MUST BE CLEARLY NAMED. Please check regularly that the name has not faded if you use a pen to name label the clothing. We find that woven name tapes are the most successful method of naming items of clothing. Unnamed items of school uniform will be held in the school office for a maximum period of two weeks. After that time, due to the lack of space in school, they will be placed in the Second Hand stock to be sold.

All children must have a coat in cold or wet weather.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Edgar Jerome's, our uniform supplier, have re-opened their shop in Aldershot with safety arrangements in place. However, they recommend ordering online if possible and not leaving it too late for September. See the flyer below for more details.

We have a selection of second hand uniform available. Please contact either of the offices at any time.

Children must be able to remove earrings themselves for P.E. or they will not be allowed to take part. If you decide to have your child’s ears pierced, please do this at the start of the summer holiday as it can take six weeks for the ears to heal.
