We want every member of our school to feel part of the Forest Glade Primary School community. We believe that wearing a smart and practical uniform allows all children to feel equal to their peers and confident in their appearance, giving them a sense of belonging to our school.
Forest Glade Primary School is committed to promoting equality and to ensuring that no child is discriminated against due to their religion, belief, economic circumstances or social and cultural background. Our uniform will promote a sense of pride and act as an identity for all the members of the school, supporting the school’s commitment to inclusion. The uniform has been chosen to be smart, practical and good value for money.
Forest Glade Primary School is proud to have high expectations and strives to provide the very best for all our children. All pupils from Nursery through to Year 6 are expected to wear the specified uniform.
Our school uniform is easily available, at competitive prices, at local shops including supermarkets. We also have branded items of uniform available from The Big Fish Schoolwear website (https://www.bigfishschoolwear.co.uk/ Username: forest glade Password: forest), but it is not a requirement for children to wear any item of branded clothing to school.
In addition to being able to wear non-branded uniform, we will also hold a termly uniform swap where parents can swap small sizes for bigger sizes of secondhand clothing. A complete list of the items needed for school uniform including those for Physical Education is below.

Other aspect of our school uniform policy
Children may wear a watch (no smart watches permitted) and a plain pair of stud earrings. No other jewellery is allowed due to heath and safety and liability in case of loss. If you would like your child to have their ears pierced, please try to arrange this at the start of the summer holidays so they have enough time to heal. This means earrings can be removed for PE. We discourage the wearing of earrings for PE and will request that children remove their earrings. If your child is unable to remove their own earrings, we request that parents remove them prior to children arriving at school on PE days. If there are specific reasons children cannot remove their earrings, they need to be well covered.
Hair should be of a natural colour; long hair must be tied back and items used to secure hair must not be overly big.
Make up and nail polish should not be worn.
School bags should be able to carry items that the children need for school e.g. reading book, water bottle etc.
