All children will also need Wellingtons.  These are ideally kept in school to enable the children to get out and about whatever the weather.


Our children may wear small studs if their ears are pierced.  Please ensure all studs must either be removed or covered with surgical tape for PE lessons.                                                                                                                                          Children may wear a simple analogue watch when they are learning to or can tell the time.  There are clocks in every classroom however and an additional digital 24 hour clock in our KS2 class.                                                        No other jewellery should be worn.  If you  have any religious or cultural reasons for wearing any additional jewellery, please discuss this with the Headteacher at transition.


We of course allow all children to wear their hair at a length which they are comfortable with.  We do ask however, that any hair which falls below the shoulder is tied neatly with maroon, black or brown simple hair ties and clips.  Fringes which can fall into the eyes should also be secured with clips or hair bands.

Hair colour should be natural and any products such as gels used to ensure a well presented look only!

Head coverings for religious reasons will be respected.



  • Reed School logo maroon PE T-shirt
  • Reed School logo maroon hoodie
  • Black shorts or cycling shorts (logo free)
  • Black jogging bottoms or leggings (logo free)
  • Trainers (please ensure children can tie their own laces before providing lace up trainers)
  • PE uniform should be kept in a Reed School logo drawstring bag or ruck-sack.

Swimming (Year 1 onwards) – Close fitting one piece swimwear and towel.  Children who have hair long enough to go in their eyes when wet, need to wear a swimming hat.  Goggles can be worn, although the water safety part of our curriculum ensures children can be in the water without.

Please ensure that ALL articles of clothing are named.

Many children wear the  Reed First School logo waterproof fleece coat for Forest School and daily as their coat.  However, this is not compulsory.

  • Reed First School coat or alternative suitable waterproof coat
