Poringland Primary

School Uniform

School Uniform

The school has a uniform based on combinations of blue, black, grey and white. Parents and carers are requested to ensure that, as far as possible, children’s dress conforms to the suggestions below. We would suggest you take into account of our active school life and daily play outside involving our woodland climbing, slide and our woodland zip wire areas, when choosing uniform options. 

All items are available from several stores in Norwich. School sweatshirts and fleeces are available online from Price and Buckland (price-buckland.co.uk/schools). Book bags (for infants) can be purchased directly from the school. 

All children require a change of clothes (e.g. tracksuit) on their peg. Please note that we cannot provide spares in the event of a toileting accident, or if a child gets wet or muddy at playtime.

For PE

  • White T-shirt, black shorts and trainers (Velcro). 
  • If ear-rings cannot be removed for PE, please could you send in surgical tape to cover them. 

    On PE days, your child should come to school dressed in PE kit and trainers (if the weather is cold, then a tracksuit can be worn over the top). This means that children will not need to change their clothes in the classroom.

Swimming (where applicable)

Children require a sensible costume/trunks and towel. Goggles may be worn. On swimming days, children will wear their uniform to school and change for swimming at the Leisure Centre. 


Other items  

  • Your child will need to bring a named water bottle.  
  • Your child will need a warm, waterproof coat each day, and ideally, a change of footwear in school.  
  • Infant children require a blue bookbag. 
  • Junior children may require a small rucksack or similar bag for carrying books etc.  
  • All items should be clearly named. 

Jewellery should NOT be worn. For pierced ears, simple studs or sleepers only may be worn.

Lost Property 

This is a constant problem! Please encourage your child to take responsibility for items of clothing belonging to him/her. All items should be named. Anything found lying around school is placed in the lost property boxes, which can be found in the bike sheds.
