Yoxford & Peasenhall Primary School

School Uniform

School uniform is an important part of school life as it helps to create and foster a sense of community and a feeling of belonging.  It demonstrates to children that there are codes of conduct and dress in society, especially in the working environment.  We ask that all parents support us in ensuring that their children wear the correct uniform and are smart and presentable.  We ask the children to ensure that they take care of their uniform and take pride in their appearance.

A smart appearance both in dress and hairstyle will convey a positive message about how a person values themselves and how they may fit into any learning or working community.  In addition, your child will be representing our school when they learn off site at sports competitions, museum visits, residential visits.

If your child has any medical issues which require an adaptation of the uniform, please bring a letter from your GP or consultant and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

Please use your common sense when choosing hairstyles for your child.  Whilst the school does not wish to dictate exact lengths or acceptable styles, it is important that you consider what the ethos of our school aims to encourage.

On safety grounds, permitted jewellery is restricted to watches and a single plain stud earring in the bottom of either/each ear, and is to be removed and stored by pupils before PE lessons or other sporting activities.

Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.

We encourage the use of second hand uniform. We have some pre-loved uniform at the school and any proceeds made will go towards our school's development.  The PTA hold regular pre-loved uniform sales but if you are in need of any items please contact the school office.  A donation of £1.00 per item will be gratefully received. Also, often local charity shops provide our pre-loved uniform, so we recommend popping into the local towns and villages to seek out some Uniform. 

We welcome any donations of unneeded uniform. Please contact reception if you have anything you wish to donate, so a drop-off can be arranged. 

Please also be aware that Uniform does not need to have the school logo, as long as it is the school colours it is perfectly acceptable. 

School uniform can be purchased directly from 'Brigade' using the following link:

Thank you for your continued support.
