There is a voluntary school uniform consisting of a burgundy jumper or sweatshirt, a white or burgundy polo shirt or white blouse, together with grey skirt or trousers.  The girls wear a pink and white stripe gingham dress in the summer. 

Sweatshirts, jumpers, T-shirts all bearing the school logo, may be purchased from Initially Yours, Badminton Centre, Station Road, Yate, www.initiallyyours.co.uk . This uniform is not obligatory but is worn by most of the children. It does help towards creating a sense of community. 

We do also ask that long hair is tied back.


Children may have either a nutritious cooked lunch or can bring a packed lunch from home.  Children in Reception class, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to a cooked meal free of charge. Older children can pay to have a cooked lunch. We are a healthy school and would like to encourage packed lunches to be balanced and nutritious. 

The current hot meal menu can be found here: Menu December 2020
