School Uniform

We ask that you provide your child with school uniform. We believe it unifies our children as members of our school, enables them to not be distratced by differences shown by clothing and can also be practical for day to day acitivites. Please make sure all items are named.

Covid 19 Adjustments 

Pupils are wearing trainers all day for both indoor and outdoor learning. We will review this termly and inform everyone in advance if there is a return to shoes or more clarity on trainers.

PE Kit

For PE lessons:

A white polo shirt

Navy blue shorts

Plimsolls or trainers

Spare socks.

For outdoor sports (Autumn/Winter):


Blue tracksuit bottoms


one piece swimming costume or trunks

Swimming hat



If hair is long it should be tied back. This for safety as well as hair not being a distraction from learning. Please keep hair bands and clips discrete. 

Children's hair should not be coloured or have tramlines, words or similar shaved in to it. 


The wearing of any jewellery at school is not suitable. However, if your child has pierced ears they should wear plain stud earrings. This request applies to both boys and girls. Owing to a number of accidents in schools, East Sussex County Council's policy is that studs must be removed during all physical education and swimming instruction. Your child is responsible for ensuring that this takes place. If your child is unable to remove/replace their own studs they should not be worn to school on P.E. or swimming days. Your child will be unable to participate in the lesson with studs in place. Under no circumstances are staff permitted to remove/replace earrings.

Every year a small number of children have their ears pierced during term-time. Parents should be aware that if the studs cannot be removed at all during those first weeks, the child will be unable to participate in PE or swimming.

Accidents can also occur during breaks and lunch times. The school therefore strongly recommends that children should avoid wearing studs in school wherever possible. The school would not wish to make this a major issue but the Staff and Governors would appreciate sensible support from home.

Forest School Kit List

Sussex Forest School - Weather and Clothing Policy

In Forest School, as well as in a wider sense, there is no such thing as bad weather, just weather, and all we need do is dress appropriately and recognise that the weather just is. The sessions will continue in most weather conditions, with the exception of high winds (>35-40 mph) or lightening. We expect children to get muddy, very muddy, at wet times of year and so old, inexpensive clothes are most suitable. It is of course very temperature and moisture dependent and the time of year has a big bearing, but in general these guidelines should help:

  • Waterproof Jacket (not on obviously sunny days)
  • Waterproof trousers – essential in Autumn, Winter & Spring but useful all year round
  • All-in-one waterproofs are very useful, especially for younger children
  • Layers – more in winter (3 or 4 is fine – 2  isn’t enough!) e.g. Vest, T-shirt (long sleeved), long sleeved jumper / hoody, coat/waterproof jacket.
  • Long trousers (shorts are not appropriate due to the nature of the woodland, with stinging and scratching hazards abundant)
  • Wellies / other waterproof shoes / walking boots in all seasons except summer (2 pairs of socks in winter), strong shoes / trainers available for all seasons
  • Wooly hat (much heat is lost from the head), maybe scarf
  • Gloves, preferably water resistant but wooly gloves are ok (extremities do get cold in winter)
  • Spare socks (who wants squelchy socks?)
  • Sun screen (in summer)
  • Insect repellant (not winter)

Just cold – ok you can move around; just wet – ok you have a raincoat and can build a shelter; cold & wet – “I wanna go home!” – we lose heat 25 times quicker if we are wet! – children lose heat faster than adults and once cold find it hard to get warm again.

We have a duty of Care for your child and so although every attempt will be made to ensure that they are dressed appropriately, using spare resources from school of from our own kit (if they do not have the appropriate clothing), we will not be able to take children to forest school if we feel that they are inadequately dressed and may be exposed to the weather and conditions too much.
