Ickleford Primary

School Uniform

School Uniform

The Ickleford Primary School uniform is practical but smart, and we expect all of our children to wear it neatly and with pride. Children are expected to arrive at and leave school in the correct uniform (including black school shoes and school colours socks/tights) and represent the school positively when out in the community wearing their uniform.

Our school uniform is red, white and grey and can be bought from any retailer. A comprehensive list of  items can be found below. Optional school embroidered sweatshirts and cardigans, P.E. kit, summer caps, and reading book bags (required in Reception and KS1) are available to order from our online supplier, Price & Buckland.


From time to time, our PTA and other charitable organisations arrange second hand sales.  Information of such events will be advertised on our school newletters.

Please label/name every items of your child’s clothing.

For our sports day, in the summer term,  children are  assigned a house colour of either red, blue, green and yellow. We recently started a new tradition of the children wearing a plain coloured t-shirt to represent their house for this event. Children will remain in the same coloured house for the remainder of their time at school. Siblings will be placed in the same house.  Children will also be required to wear their t-shirt at the end of some units of PE. Our sports coach organises inter-house mini games competitions in each class to consolidate their learning and the t-shirts are worn to differentiate the teams. 

PE items with the Ickleford Primary School logo can also be purchased from Price and Buckland online. However, generic items from other suppliers, such as high street retailers and  supermarkets are permitted.
