School Uniform

What is the school uniform?

Children are expected to be sensibly dressed for a day at school.  The school uniform consists of a green sweatshirt and gold polo shirt, both sporting the school badge.  These should be worn with grey trousers or skirt (available from most chain stores and general clothing stockists including through our own stockist).  In warm weather grey shorts (not shorter than mid thigh) or green and white / yellow and white 'gingham' style dresses are recommended as green and yellow are the school colours.  It is acceptable for plain tights to be worn with a skirt.  No leggings please!

Other garments are available for specific purposes - see below.

Is footwear included?

Shoes should be sturdy, plain and preferably black.  We have been advised by the school nurse that trainers should not be worn for extensive periods and they are therefore not part of our uniform.

Does the uniform include a hat?

A baseball style cap, in the school colours, is provided to each child.  This is intended for use during the summer months to keep the sun off the children.  We also often ask that pupils wear their cap when off the premises as it makes it easier to identify them!

Does the school stock high quality used garments?

We carry a stock of nearly new uniform.  This is of the highest quality and many garments are as new.  To enquire about our current stock please contact:
enquiries@edward-richardson.lincs.sch.uk
A 'Used Uniform Shop' is often open on Family Afternoons and at the Christmas and Summer Fairs.  Please request if you would like to look at our stock.

Can we donate good quality stock?

Donations of good quality used uniform are always gratefully accepted.  All money raised from sales of used uniform is donated to the PSFA. 

What should pupils wear for PE?

There is also a 'uniform' for PE which consists of a white 'T' shirt and blue shorts.  A suitable white 'T' shirt, emboidered with the school logo, can be purchased through our stockist.  Suitable plain garments can be purchased at most clothing outlets.

Pupils will be required to remove all jewellery and watches for PE and Games lessons as they can represent a danger to themselves and others in the event of a collision.  They are also susceptible to damage.

Where can we order uniform?
