School Uniform

We want our children to look smart when at school and feel proud to wear their uniform.

Our Uniform Policy is outlined below. 

We expect all our children to wear a school sweatshirt or cardigan carrying our logo which should be purchased from our supplier.

The school colours are maroon and grey

  • Maroon school sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo - please do not buy non-branded ones.
  • Grey trousers or shorts, skirt or pinafore
  • White shirt, blouse or polo shirt* (*optional with or without logo)
  • White/Grey/Black plain socks or Grey/Black plain tights
  • Red and White small check summer dress    

Ordering Uniform                 

To order uniform from our new supplier Mapac  Click Here

IMPORTANT: Mapac also provides uniform for the Debenham Sir Robert Hitchams School so double check your order is for our FRAMLINGHAM school with our Logo.

In addition to the school's branded sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts (optional) and PE kit, Mapac offer other items such as trousers, shirts, blouses, baseball hats, kitbags, bookbags, name labels etc.  These additional items do not have to be purchased from Mapac, but some parents may find it useful to have a 'one-stop' uniform shop.

Parents can still order from Leonard Hudson (our previous supplier) until May 2022 for items they still have in stock, and they will price match the Mapac prices.

 Delivery

During term time, Mapac offer a FREE bulk delivery service to school where parents can order uniform and each week the school will receive one delivery of all orders.

Alternatively, orders can be delivered to your home for £3.95 for orders under £50 or free over £50.

Lead time for orders is usually between 2-3 weeks from placing your order.

  • Deadline for delivery to school before end of summer term is 24 June 2022. 
  • Deadline for delivery to home before start of term in September is 31 July 2022.

Branded School Sweatshirts & School Cardigan

These are embroidered with the school logo and are available to order direct from the supplier.

Please do not buy non-logo cardigans or sweatshirts - thank you.        

Other Items of Uniform

Apart from the branded items of uniform the other items are easily available from supermarkets or high street stores or from Mapac.  Please note:

  • Trousers should be school uniform style – ie not jeans material, leggings or jeggings.
  • Shorts must be school uniform style and approximately knee length.
  • Skirts and summer dresses should be approximately knee length.

Children will need a coat for school and a sun hat for the summer. Warm outdoor clothing and wellies are needed in Foundation/KS1 for Forest Schools – you will be notified in advance of sessions for this.

Please remember to label every item of clothing (and other possessions) with the name of your child.

Footwear

Children should wear plain black shoes which are both comfortable and practical. They should not have platform soles or high heels. Any footwear that covers the ankle (e.g. boots) should not be worn.     

We allow the children to wear sandals in summer, in white, black, brown or red. They must have an ankle strap and be worn with socks. We do not allow flip-flops or loose slip-ons eg Crocs.  Please do not send your child in canvas shoes

DT / Art

Children should wear a painting shirt (kept at school in their named PE bag) to protect their clothing during art and craft lessons.

Long Hair & Hairstyles

Children should tie back their long hair (shoulder length or longer) when they are in school (using school discrete appropriate hair accessories). This helps to keep hair out of their eyes when working and taking part in PE.

Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school

Jewellery & Watches

The only jewellery allowed is stud earrings.  Your child will be asked to remove earrings for PE and swimming. 

Children will be required to remove watches before games lessons.

Nail Varnish & Make-Up

Children should not wear nail-varnish or make-up in school. Children will be asked to remove any nail-varnish using an acetone nail-varnish remover (kept at the office) and will be asked to wash off any makeup.

Sun hats and sun cream

We recommend that you apply sun cream to your child's arms, legs, face and neck during the summer months, and also provide your child with a named hat.

IMPORTANT:  PLEASE LABEL ALL BELONGINGS

Please remember to label every item of clothing (and other possessions) with the name of your child.

Valuables and Mobile Phones

Remember not to bring valuable items in to school.  If your child needs to have a mobile phone with them for their journey to or from school then they should sign it in at the office at the start of the day and collect it at the end.  
We do not allow children to keep a mobile phone with them during school.           

PLEASE NOTE: Mobile phones signed in at the school office are left at parent's risk and the school cannot be held liable for these items.
