Uniform and PE Kit

At Whitegrove we have a simple but smart school uniform. As members of the school community, we want our children wear their uniform with pride, so tidy and correct.

Most of our school uniform is available in local shops and supermarkets. Good quality 2nd hand uniform is also available through our WPFA’s 2nd hand uniform Facebook group.

Our school jumper and cardigan (and house PE T-shirt for KS1/KS2 plus EYFS from the summer term) are only available from Price & Buckland via their simple and secure online service (they can also supply other items).

Parents should log on to https://www.pbuniform-online.co.uk/whitegrove to register initially. You can choose to have your order delivered to your home address or to school. Delivery to school is free of charge and we will notify you by text message when your order arrives, ready for you to collect from the office. There is a small charge for delivery to your home address.

Please ensure that ALL items are named (first and last names), including lunchboxes (named on the outside please), bottles, scarves, hats, gloves, socks etc.

In addition to our school uniform...

During colder weather, pupils may wear base layers to keep warm, provided they are completely covered by the school uniform (e.g. leggings under long trousers, long-sleeved tops under a school jumper/cardigan) and removed for PE lessons (instead, a PE hoodie and tracksuit bottoms may be worn during outdoor PE to keep warm).

Base layers should not be worn beneath shorts.

Some of our children like to wear modesty shorts under dresses and skirts (for when they are doing handstands!) but they must not be visible below the hemline.

Long hair

In the interest of hygiene, long hair must be tied back AT ALL TIMES, not just for PE.

Hair accessories (e.g. hairbands) are to be PLAIN, SMALL and suited to our uniform.


In the interest of safety, jewellery must be minimal (such as a watch and one pair of plain stud earrings). Earrings must be removed before PE (we cannot cover with plasters) so children need to be able to remove and insert earrings themselves or, for younger children, leave earrings at home on PE days.

Non-uniform birthdays

Celebrating birthdays with a non-uniform day is continuing to be popular with our children and families alike (due to cost, allergies and dietary requirements of classmates) so we are continuing to say "no birthday sweets please" and enjoy your birthday in your chosen outfit (shoes still need to be without heels please).


The warm, long-sleeved top in the PE kit could be sweatshirt or fleece instead of the school hoodie.
