Uniform Information

Uniform Policy

School uniform should be worn at all times except for special events or activities where parents will be informed in advance.

For pupils new to the school, a reasonable period of adjustment will be allowed to enable correct uniform to be purchased (for example, uniform from a previous school which isn’t quite in line with ours will be permitted until parents are able to purchase Ringshall uniform)


All items of uniform should be marked with children’s names to ensure they can be returned to the correct owners if they are misplaced.


Our school uniform consists of:

  • White shirt/blouse or white polo shirt;
  • Grey skirt/pinafore dress/trousers/shorts
  • Blue checked school summer dress (for the warmer months);
  • School blue sweatshirt/cardigan;
  • Plain white/grey/black socks or plain white/grey/navy/black tights (no patterned tights or socks please)
  • Sensible, flat, plain black shoes or boots (no heels or studs please). Please provide a change of shoes for any child coming to school in Wellington boots

Jewellery, temporary tattoos and nail varnish should not be worn in school at all, with the exception of a single stud earring in each ear. Children must be able to remove their own earrings for PE otherwise they should not wear earrings to school.

Long hair must be tied back with plain hair accessories- hair being tied back helps reduce the risk of head lice.

You can order our uniform online from: PMG Schoolwear (01473 212050) or visit their store in Ipswich and purchase directly from the shop.

Parents may also purchase uniform in the school colours from major chain stores. School badges that can be sewn onto sweatshirts can be purchased from the office priced £2.00.


We require all children to wear school uniform. Hooded tops are not acceptable for indoor wear.

PE Kit

For indoor P.E.

  • White T-shirt (No emblems or logos please)
  • Black or Blue shorts

For outdoor P.E.

  • Suitable footwear such as trainers or plimsols (NOT football boots) for outside games.
  • Plain jogging bottoms/leggings and sweatshirts in the colder weather.
  • White/grey/black socks (tights are not permitted for PE, so please provide socks in your child’s PE kit)

PE kit should be brought to school on Monday and kept at school until Friday and kept in a named PE bag.

No watches or jewellery may be worn during PE activities for safety reasons. Earrings (studs only) may only be worn in school, only if a child can take them out and replace them without assistance. No tape is permitted to cover earrings for PE; they must be removed. Staff cannot assist with the removal of earrings. Children will not be permitted to participate in PE if they are wearing earrings.

We strongly advise parents do not have their child’s ears pierced in term time as, for health and safety reasons, this will mean they would be unable to access many PE activities. We therefore ask that ear piercing is carried out at the beginning of the summer break, which allows enough time for the ears to heal before returning to school.
