Granby Primary School

School Uniform

Granby pupils are proud to wear their school uniform – it helps them feel a sense of belonging.  Uniform embroidered with the Granby logo can be ordered from the online retailer www.myclothing.com.  However, logos are not mandatory and children are most welcome to wear non-embroidered uniform purchased from any supermarket or clothing store, provided that it meets the requirements outlined below.

Footwear:

  • Footwear must be smart and ideally of the 'school wear' type.
  • School shoes must be entirely black, including the straps or laces.
  • Open shoes or sandals should be secured firmly with ankle straps.
  • Trainers, if worn, should be totally black with no coloured logos or brand names.
  • Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children should wear shoes with Velcro fastenings.
  • Older children must be able to tie their own laces, before wearing laced shoes to school.
  • No backless shoes, sliders or flip flops. No high heels.

PE Kit:

In 2020-21, children are expected to come to school wearing their PE kit on their allotted PE day to prevent the need to change clothes during the day.  As such, this replaces their normal school uniform and should therefore be of the correct type as outlined below.

  • PE trainers should be black or white in colour only.
  • Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children should wear trainers with Velcro fastenings
  • Older children must be able to tie their own laces, before wearing laced trainers to school.
  • Black or grey shorts, leggings or joggers only.
  • PE takes place indoors and outdoors, all year round.
  • Please ensure children’s PE kit is appropriate to the weather conditions.
  • Plain black or grey sweatshirts, hoodies or zipped hoodies.
  • These should match with the pupil’s shorts, leggings or joggers
  • All PE kit should be exclusively of the 'school wear' type.
