Selsdon Primary School and Nursery

Uniform Reminder

As we are now half way through the year, we are putting up a reminder about school uniform so that everyone comes back to school wearing the correct uniform.  Teachers and adults in school will continue to monitor what the children are wearing to school.

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!


Hair should be tidy.  Long hair must be tied back and children whose hair is not tied back will be asked to do so. No elaborate or extreme hair ties or hair accessories. Children must not wear nail varnish or make-up to school. If they do, they will be asked to remove it.

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.
