Stanway Fiveways Primary School Uniform Policy


It is our policy that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos. We also believe it is important that certain activities are facilitated by specialised and appropriate clothing when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. We provide a complete list of the items needed for children’s school uniform in this policy and in our school prospectus.

School uniform can be ordered online at Anglia Sports and Schoolwear: https://www.yourschoolwear.co.uk/stanway-fiveways-primary-school-240-c.asp
Aims Our policy for children’s school uniform is based on the belief that a school uniform:

  •  promotes a sense of pride in the school
  •  engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  •  is practical and smart
  •  identifies the children with the school
  •  is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be)
  •  makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  •  is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents
  •  has been designed with health and safety in mind.

Our school colour is bottle green and the uniform is as follows:


  •  School bottle green sweatshirt with school logo
  •  White polo shirt or white shirt
  •  School bottle green book bag with school logo
  •  Grey trousers or grey shorts (stretch material fabrics are not permitted),

Please note that the wearing of platform soled and high heeled shoes and boots within the school is not permitted even on non-uniform days for health and safety reasons. Children may wear Wellington boots to school in wet weather and change into indoor footwear when in school. Trainers may be worn at playtimes. Trainers must be worn at all times on the MUGA.
