St James CofE Primary and Nursery School


We have chosen our school uniform to be suitable for indoor and outdoor learning and to be practical and affordable.

Our school uniform is:

  • White polo shirts
  • Black or grey trousers (not jeans), shorts or leggings
  • Black or grey skirts or pinafore dresses
  • Lilac Gingham summer dresses (optional)
  • Black school shoes
  • Black plimsolls or slippers for indoor use
  • School fleece (for outdoor learning)
  • School jumper (for indoor learning)
  • School book bag


For PE: White t-shirt, black shorts and black plimsolls and a drawstring back (not rucksack) to put them in.


For Outdoors: A pair of wellies and welly socks. Any colour is fine! We also recommend a set of St James waterproofs which are available from the uniform online shop (see link below).


Water bottle: Any type but please check it has a non leaky lid! Sports bottles are often the best option.  Water bottles should only contain water.


There is no expectation that any of our Nursery children wear a uniform.  However, we will be encouraging your children to explore indoors and outdoors throughout the day and therefore they need to wear practical clothes that are suitable for all kinds of activities.  Our uniform provider does offer a range of suitable clothing for our youngest children, should parents wish to purchase clothing from them.


The polo shirts, trousers, leggings, shorts, summer dresses, school shoes, PE Kit and wellies can be purchased from anywhere. There are specialist school uniform shops or you can buy from a range of supermarkets.


We have worked with a local supplier to provide the school jumpers and book bag. As
children progress through the school, you can buy uniform from the online uniform shop and chose from a range of delivery options:


The most important thing for parents and carers is to LABEL EVERYTHING with your child’s name. You can buy sew in or stick on labels, or write in fabric marker on the label.  It will save you - and us - hours of searching!
