Selsdon Primary School and Nursery

Correct Uniform!

It’s a new school year, so the perfect time to remind ourselves of the correct school uniform.

Teachers and adults in school will be very strict about uniform this year, so let’s all make sure we have the correct bits and pieces on.

As I’m sure you’re all aware, the first time any child wears the wrong school uniform or PE kit, they’ll receive a yellow card – this is a warning or a reminder sent home to remind everyone to wear their correct school uniform. After this, if the same child wears the wrong uniform or PE kit again that term, they will receive a detention!

Early Years

If your child is in Nursery or Reception, they will need to wear:

Dresses, skirts or school shoes are not permitted for any gender.

Years 1-6

The following are the compulsory uniform for all children in Years 1-6:

PE Kit


In Years 1-6, PE kit must be worn into school in lieu of uniform on any day that a child has PE.

PE days are as follows:

We consider our PE kit a part of our uniform, and so expect the same level of rigour. The compulsory PE kit is as follows:

If children do not have the Selsdon tracksuit, they may wear their school jumper/cardigan on top of their PE kit. No other jumpers or hoodies are acceptable. Hoodies will be confiscated if worn in school.

Trainers should be appropriate for sports and expected to get muddy or dirty. Children regularly do sports activities on the field/outside.

Tracksuit bottoms should not bear any large logos or slogans. If they do, children will be in breach of the uniform policy.

Swimming Kit

We do not have a uniform swimming kit, however, we do have some expectations regarding swimwear:

Children should wear their PE kit into school on swimming days, to help make changing easier.
