PE and swimming

At St John's, we ask that children have a PE kit on their peg at all times.

  • Black shorts or leggings or tracksuit bottoms
  • A red t shirt or white polo shirt
  • Grey, red or black socks
  • A red sweatshirt or cardigan
  • Black trainers

When children go swimming they will require:

  • A swimming costume or trunks / shorts
  • A towel
  • Goggles

Bags and Coats

  • Children should bring a weather appropriate coat to school every day.  In winter months they should bring a hat and gloves.  In summer months they should bring a sun hat.
  • Children at St John's are provided with a school book bag as a gift from the Friends of St John's.  They do not require any other bag for school.

Jewellery and Hair Styles

  • Children may wear stud or sleeper earrings in ears but we reserve the right to ask that no jewellery is worn on PE days.  If children arrive to school with earrings on PE day they will be asked to either remove them or place a plaster over them.
  • Children may wear a watch, but this will need to be removed for PE.
  • We do not allow any smart watches in school.


At St John's, children may wear non-uniform for the day on their birthday (or the day closest to their birthday if it falls at a weekend or in the holidays).  Clothing still needs to be appropriate for school activities.

Uniform Policy

Our uniform supplier for logo items is Cosmic Monkey Schoolwear.  We recommend using local supermarkets and shops for non-logo items, to achieve best value for money.  As logo items are not compulsory, cardigans and sweatshirts could also be purchased from supermarkets or local shops.

We arrange second hand uniform sales in school and advertise these as and when they happen.
