Second hand uniforms are available for purchase at low cost from the front office. Donations of pre-loved uniforms are welcomed. All funds raised are used for a whole school activity during the year.
As with other valuables the school can take no responsibility for lost items. All uniform items should be clearly marked with the child’s name with a permanent marker.
