The Downs Primary School & Nursery

Uniform

Our school has a school uniform policy and it is expected that all children will wear school uniform, with the exception of the children in our nursery classes. We believe this fosters a feeling of school identity and promotes a sense of pride in being part of the school community. Our uniform policy is available in full in the policies section of this website.

Our school uniform and other items bearing our school logo are available for purchase from the local shop:

Top Form
90-91 The Stow,
Harlow
CM20 3AP

If you prefer to buy plain school uniform in the school colours without the school logo you are welcome to do so.

The school colours are royal blue, grey and white and school uniform style clothing is required. Any combination of the following would be appropriate; -

Boys

Girls

White shirt or poloshirt

White blouse or poloshirt

Royal blue sweatshirt

Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan

Dark grey or black trousers or shorts

Dark grey skirt or pinafore dress

Plain black shoes/trainers

Plain black shoes or trainers

 

White sandals with socks (summer months)

If trainers are worn, we do ask that they be plain black without obvious or bright trim or logos please. 

We discourage wearing any jewellery for safety reasons, as it can be a hazard in the playground or in P.E. Children may wear one set of small ear studs and a plain watch. We cannot be held responsible for any loss of jewellery or personal items.

P.E. Uniform

All children are required to participate in physical education. It is essential that all children have a PE kit in school at all times for them to be able to fully take part in P.E. activities and to ensure that they remain safe and comfortable.  No jewellery, including earrings, can be worn during P.E. Any combination of the following is acceptable: -

  • White t-shirt or t-shirt in the child’s house colour
  • Dark colour (grey/black/navy) sweatshirt
  • Dark colour (grey/black/navy) joggers or shorts
  • Trainers
  • Swimming kit for years 5 and 6 including a swimming hat for long hair

Please note: all children will take part in outside P.E. lessons even during winter months.
