Uniform Information

School Uniform


At Chieveley Primary School our main school colours are green and grey. We expect all children to wear school uniform. There are opportunities to buy pre-loved uniform through the PTA regularly throughout the year. Any parent struggling to buy uniform should let the office know and we will try to help.


Please ensure that all children's belongings are labelled. Although we attempt to return all lost property, we find that we dispose of many unlabelled items of clothing every week!


Our uniform:


  • Grey skirt, pinafore , trousers
  • Green checked dress for the summer - not compulsory
  • Green cardigan, sweat shirt/ jumper or sleeveless jumper 
  • White shirt/polo shirt - plain or with logo
  • Yellow PE shirt - plain or with logo
  • Black PE shorts
  • Trainers for games 
  • Black plimsolls for indoor wear
  • Black shoes for outdoors
  • Chieveley Primary School summer cap with logo


Shoes : We ask that children wear a normal pair of black school shoes whilst at school, but have access to other sensible footwear for indoors preferably black plimsolls but sensible slippers are permitted if you cannot find plimsolls to fit. Please provide shoes with velcro or buckle fastenings in FS/KS1 and until your child can tie their laces.


Bags: All bags can be printed with the school logo and are available from the school wear shop in Newbury.

  • All FS/KS1 children are required to have a green book bag and a PE bag. They are not permitted to use a rucksack as there is not enough room in the classroom.
  • From Kingfishers, KS2 children are allowed a school rucksack; they must use this for ALL of their school belongings ie their books and PE bags. 
  • Your child might like to attach a small colourful bag charm so that they can easily recognise their bag, but please put your child's name on the label too.


Water Bottle : All children are required to have a labelled water bottle which can be refilled throughout the day. These must be taken home at weekends to be cleaned.


Hair: The school does not permit children to have extreme haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children and are not in keeping with the ethos of the school. This includes patterns shaved into hair, excessive use of hair products and artificial hair or colouring. The definition of an extreme hairstyle is at the discretion of the headteacher.


Hair accessories: All hair accessories should be Chieveley green, grey, black or match your child's natural hair colour. In summer, hair bobbles/bands made to match summer dresses are also acceptable. Large fashion bows are not permitted.


Jewellery should not be worn at school with the exception of watches, which may be worn at the owner's risk. If earrings are worn they should be of a plain, neat, keeper type. This is a parents ' decision and the risk is decided by the parent. We take no responsibility for injuries caused by earrings.
