School Uniform 

All our parents and carers ensure that their children are dressed in the correct school uniform, which encourages a sense of pride and belonging to King Athelstan Primary School.

Children in the Nursery are expected to wear comfortable clothing including footwear, which allows them to access the full range of activities available including physical activities and messy play. 

All children in Reception to Year 6 are expected to wear the following items:



Purple sweatshirt with logo

White polo shirt with/without logo

Black trousers, black skirt, black pinafore dress

Flat black school shoes

Plain black/grey/white socks or tights

A light weight purple fleece with logo is also available for outdoor wear.



Purple sweatshirt with logo

White polo shirt with/without logo

Black trousers, black skirt, black pinafore dress or purple and white checked dress

Flat black school shoes

Plain black/grey/white socks or white socks with purple gingham frill

Sunhat or cap (during very hot weather)



Plain white t-shirt

Plain black shorts

Plain black tracksuit bottoms and school sweatshirt (during cold weather)

Black plimsolls or trainers


Please note:

  • Trainers and boots are not part of our school uniform. Children may bring trainers to wear at playtime however they should wear black school shoes to and from school and during the school day.
  • Skirts should be approximately knee length so that they do not restrict a child’s ability to run freely in the playground or sit easily on the floor.
  • Jewellery is not generally permitted however stud earrings may be worn if your child is able to remove them or cover them independently for PE. Religious jewellery is permitted.
  • All items must be clearly marked with your child’s name.


Cultural Race and religious requirements

At King Athelstan we respect the needs of different cultures, races and religions. We accommodate these needs within the uniform policy and are happy for children to dress appropriately to reflect this (providing that it does not pose a threat to security, safety and learning, or compromise the well-being of the whole school community). We request that children wear plain lilac, black or white hijabs.



The school uniform is available online or in the shop at PMG Schoolwear in Chessington.  Other general uniform items are available from any leading chain store. We try to ensure that uniform costs are kept low and will regularly compare prices of suppliers to ensure best value.



The Attendance and Welfare Officer monitors the implementation of this policy to ensure that all children wear the correct school uniform, including the correct school shoes.  Parents/carers are contacted if children are not consistently in school uniform and appropriate support is offered if applicable.
