School Uniform

We believe uniform is not only practical but also gives the children a sense of identity and belonging to our school. Our school uniform comprises the colours of green and purple on a grey or white base.  Please ensure that all clothing is marked with your child’s name.

Jewellery is neither practical nor safe for school wear, and must be kept to a minimum. Plain earring studs and a watch are acceptable, but earrings must be removed by the child for P.E.

If your child brings personal items to school they are responsible for these items.

We are fortunate at Downsway Primary that parents/carers do not have to buy branded uniform.  All our branded uniform is optional, and not compulsory, which enables parents to purchase school uniform without our logo on from local supermarkets and high street stores.  Branded uniform with our logo on, can be purchased from Michael Hope - . Friends of Downsway also sell pre-loved, second hand uniform.

For more information our school uniform policy can be found by clicking on the "About Us" tab, and then clicking on "Policies".
