Shorne is committed to ensuring that its school uniform is affordable and accessible to all pupils and does not place an unreasonable financial burden on families.

The school implements a gender-neutral uniform, meaning that pupils are not required to wear specific items based on their gender, and may wear any of the uniform items listed in the ‘School Uniform’ section of our Uniform Policy; regardless of the legal sex recorded on the school’s records. Transgender pupils are supported to access the uniform that best reflects their gender expression. The school ensures that the needs of pupils with SEND and/or sensory difficulties are considered in the uniform policy, e.g. ensuring soft, stretchy fabrics and avoiding intricate buttons or hard seams; however, where the needs of these pupils cannot be met in the standard uniform policy, individual adaptations to the uniform will be considered and permitted wherever possible.

We have an online uniform shop (School Time), where you can purchase school uniform. Uniform and PE kits can also be brought from local supermarkets to help minimise costs. The school logo is optional. The school colours are bottle green, gold, grey, and white. All pupils are required to wear school uniforms. No designer emblems are permitted on tops. All items of uniform and PE clothing should be clearly and individually named.

Additional Information

Children are expected to come to school clean and tidy. No make-up, false nails, or nail varnish should be worn. Any child with long hair must have their hair tied back for school. Only plain hair bands or clips should be worn. Extreme hairstyles i.e. shaved emblems, and Mohican/styles with severe variations in length are not permitted. For more information, please refer to our uniform policy.

Coats – The colour of the coat is a parental choice but it should be warm and waterproof during the winter months. 

Jewellery – No jewellery should be worn to school, except stud earrings. Stud earrings will need to be removed for PE lessons and we would recommend that children’s ears are pierced during the summer holiday period. If studs cannot be taken out, in the first six weeks after piercing they should be taped using Micropore tape. The tape will need to be provided by parents and kept in your child’s PE bag. After the six weeks period has passed, we would ask that earrings are removed on PE days. Staff are not permitted to remove or replace earrings.

Children are permitted to wear Medic-Alert bracelets.

Children may wear sensible wristwatches. Smart watches are not permitted.

Water bottles – All children should bring a bottle of water to school each day to ensure they remain hydrated. Please ensure these are named. Water bottles can be refilled throughout the day if necessary.

Hot weather – Please apply sun cream to your child before they come to school.
