School Dress Code and Uniform Ordering

Cottenham Primary School has a dress code which permits the following:


Red / navy sweatshirt / jumper/cardigan – plain or with school logo.
Red /white / navy shirt / poloshirt - plain or with school logo.
School summer dress with short sleeves – red / white/ navy
Black or grey trousers / skirts / shorts – no denim (including black)



Shorts, T-shirts and tracksuit bottoms. All children should have a change of shoes for P.E.



Shoes must be sensible, low heeled and a dark colour - ideally black. Children who wear high-heeled shoes to school will be asked to change into their P.E. shoes to avoid accidents in the playground.

A scrunchie to tie up long hair is very useful.
Children will need a costume, swimming cap and towel for swimming in the summer.



     For reasons of Health and Safety we follow LA guidelines.
  •   Children may wear a watch.
  •   One ring may be worn.
  •   Only studs or sleepers in ears. These need to be removed by the child for P.E. to prevent accidents
      No other jewellery is permitted unless it is worn for religious or cultural reasons.

A sun hat for hot days and a coat for cool days are a must!

A bag which can be hung on a peg containing:

A small pencil case.

P.E. kit.

Packed lunch – if required.

Water bottle.

Home-School journal.

Book bag/reading book.

Please note:  Each term we have a lot of unnamed lost property so please ensure ALL items are named


Ordering Items online

To make it easier to buy your child’s school uniform, we have chosen to use the Parents’ Online ordering service from Schoolyard Ltd based near Royston, Herts. If you would like to buy items with the school logo, please click here to go to the Schoolyard online site. You can either choose to have deliveries made to school, which costs £2.00 + VAT or you can have deliveries made to a personal address for £6.00 + VAT. Alternatively, items may be brought from other retailers.


Book bags and PE bags will be available to buy from the school and there will be a complete set of garments to try on after school on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, if you are unsure of the size to order,


We intend to continue to collect and resell second hand uniform so any donations will be gratefully received.
