Expectations for our required school uniform

Please ensure that all clothing worn or brought into school is labelled with your child’s name and class.

We encourage all children to wear school uniform. This consists of:

  • White or navy polo shirts or T-shirts
  • Blue and white checked dresses (not available from Vortex)
  • Grey or navy skirts / trousers
  • Navy sweatshirts / cardigans

Note, jewellery must not be worn for health and safety reasons and where ears are pierced, only small studs are permitted to be worn. Exceptions can only be made for medical or religious reasons. Long hair should be tied back with appropriate discrete school-coloured hair accessories.

Our P.E. uniform is:

  • PE Team T-Shirt in Navy Blue
  • Plain navy or dark coloured jogging bottoms or leggings
  • Plain, dark shorts
  • ‘Lightweight’ Trainers i.e. not boot like trainers (these need to be suitable for outdoor physical activity. Black plimsolls will no longer be suitable as these are not waterproof or as practical to walk to school in/wear all day)
  • Pupils can wear outdoor coats, school jumpers, a plain navy sweatshirt or a fleece over their PE uniform to travel to school/play outside.

For swimming a full swimming costume (not bikini) or swimming trunks / shorts should be worn. Swimming hats must be worn over long hair. A towel will be needed from home.


Where to purchase it

Parents and carers can obtain uniform from:

  • The above branded items, plus navy waterproof jackets and fleeces can be purchased at from https://www.vortexschoolwear.co.uk/Primary-Schools/Thurgoland-Primary-School
  • Or can be bought more widely, e.g. from ‘high-street’ retailers
  • Nearly new uniform sales will take place periodically throughout the year
  • Requests for nearly new uniform items can be made via the school office
  • Details of any local uniform exchange schemes running, will be shared on school social media.
