School Uniform

School Uniform

The uniform has been devised in response to numerous requests by parents. It solves the problem of “What shall I wear today?” It ensures the children are always dressed sensibly. It is a unifying factor. We believe it also helps towards creating a good ‘tone’.


The Governors expect the co-operation of parents in ensuring that the policy on uniform is adhered to.


Chartham Primary School uniform is as follows:


  • Grey shorts or school type trousers
  • Grey school skirt, grey pinafore dress.
  • Pale blue polo shirt with Chartham logo*
  • Navy blue sweatshirt with the school logo*
  • Navy blue sweatshirt cardigan with the school logo*
  • Plain grey /black/ white knee or ankle socks
  • Plain grey /black tights
  • Socks must not be worn over tights.
  • Blue gingham dresses
  • School/book bags must be of a suitable size to be placed in your child’s locker


  • Plain black shoes with a low heel and black sole.
  • Plain black smart trainers
  • Outdoor shoes – wellington boots preferred


It is essential to mark all items of uniform with your child’s name.


School sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts, PE t-shirts, shorts, baseball caps and hats are all obtainable from Your School Uniform. If parents have difficulty with ordering uniform online, please contact the school office. Most of the uniform can also be purchased in supermarkets.


We would also like to encourage your child to bring a book bag to school for their reading books and the scrap books which are used for communication between home and school. These can also be purchased from Your School Uniform.

  • If ears have been pierced plain stud ear rings (one per ear) may be worn but must be removed for PE or covered with a piece of tape.
  • No nail varnish/false nails are allowed.
