Holme On Spalding Moor Primary School

School Uniform

We encourage all parents to support the uniform policy – we believe that a uniform looks smart and adds to the children’s sense of identity and belonging to the school.  It plays a valuable role in contributing to our school’s ethos and it establishes an appropriate tone. Any items of clothing with the school logo on are available from The School Wear shop on High Street in the village.

Main uniform:

Sweatshirts (royal blue) with logo      

Cardigans (royal blue) with logo           

Polo shirt – white (with or without school logo)

Trousers – smart plain grey or black              

Pinafore Dress – grey or black

Skirts – grey or black

Tights/socks -plain navy, grey, black or white (not over the knee socks)

In the summer months children may wear:

Shorts – plain grey or black and their school polo shirt

Summer dress – blue/white check

Shoes – Plain black (not trainers and no open toed shoes or sandals)

PE Kit:

Polo shirt/T-shirt – plain white or with the school logo on

P.E. Shorts – plain black or navy

PE tracksuit bottoms or leggings - plain black, navy or grey

Shoes - Plimsolls/Trainers (this must be a change of footwear in case these get muddy outside)

(Football shirts are not permitted!)    

All uniform should be clearly named.

Key Stage 1 and Foundation children must also have their shoes named please.


For health and safety reasons, jewellery is not permitted at school except a watch and single stud earrings. If your child has their ears pierced, we will allow them to wear single stud earrings. These must be taped up or removed by the child for P.E.

Make up and nail varnish (including toes) is not to be worn at school.

 For health and safety reasons we ask that children with long hair have it tied up especially for DT or P.E. activities. We also encourage children to wear their hair tied back to limit the spread of head lice within school. Hair should be kept presentable and should not be dyed/coloured. Hair accessories should be kept to a minimum e.g. single hair bobbles or one hair band.

For diversity and religious beliefs, any adaptations to the school uniform for children will be done through discussion and at the Headteacher’s discretion.  

As with any school policy we expect children to comply. If children are not wearing correct uniform, initially they will be reminded of the expectations and then parents will be informed if the issue is not addressed.

This policy will be reviewed annually, during the summer term.


School Uniform can be purchased from Schoolwear which is based in the village.
