Wearing of school uniform is compulsory across the Federation. The uniform consists of:

Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception):

  • Blue sweatshirt with school logo (grey sweatshirt for Glenbrook, Phoenix and Ilderton)
  • Green polo shirt with school logo (burgundry polo shirt for Phoenix and Ilderton)
  • Mid grey trousers or skirts
  • Grey socks / tights
  • Black shoes (this does not include black trainers)

  • Grey jumper with school logo (optional wearing of jumper)
  • White shirt
  • School tie (this can be elasticated for infant pupils)
  • Mid grey trousers or skirts
  • Grey socks or tights
  • Black shoes (this does not include black trainers)

Summer Uniform

Children are allowed to wear smart grey shorts in the summer. They can also wear short sleeved white shirts with their ties. Girls have the option of wearing a grey pinafore dress during the summer, however, gingham check dresses are NOT part of our school uniform and should not be worn. 

PE Kit

  • Green T-shirt with school logo (dark blue for Phoenix and Ilderton)
  • Blue shorts (burgundy for Phoenix and Ilderton)
  • Plimsolls or trainers


For safety reasons we not allow children to wear jewellery in school, the exception to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance, such as crucifix on a chain. We ask children to either remove these objects during PE and games, or cover them with a plaster, to prevent children from injury.


It can be dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in school. Similarly, in the summer months, we aim to minimise injury by asking that children wear shoes, which cover their heels and toes. We also ask parents to avoid sending children to school in lace up shoes until they are able to tie laces for themselves. This saves a lot of time when changing for PE and dance.

Uniforms can be purchased from Wearabouts in West Norwood:

    Day 1 Four seasons in one day We started bright and early ready for our adventure to PGL. Parents waved us off gleefully as we bordered the coach (possible looking forward to some child-free time). The coach journey was pleasant and the children enjoyed moving through the familiar landmarks of London and out beyond to the less familiar countryside. Once we arrive we quickly saw our family of federation schools waiting for us. We soon realised that we were in for a wonderful time with our friends. After a hearty lunch, we split into our mixed federation groups. Children and adults dispersed across the site to begin the many exciting activities. We climbed, jumped, swung and abseiled like we were fearless. We cheerer on our friends and supported those who needed our support. Unfortunately the weather did not match our enthusiasm and spirit as we experienced sun, rain, hail and then back to sun again..truly four season in one day! Nevertheless and not to be defeated we continued on and showed our true determination to do what we had set out to do.... learn, have fun and make new friends. Day 2 Facing our fears! After a full breakfast we were ready to face our fears and challenge ourselves to achieve all that we can. We had a range of exciting outdoor activities to try and we were keen to get started. At the crate challenge we learned how to belay correctly. Our instructor Katie taught us a rhyme to help as remember to belay correctly. We learned that it is very important to 'lock off' so that we can help our friends to climb safely. Stacking and climbing the crates was quite tricky and we had to balance carefully. When we could climb no more, we got to swing off and kick the mountain of crates over. We thought this would be scary but as soon as we jumped it was exhilarating and felt like we were flying. Another activity we really enjoyed was 'The Giant Swing'. This is a highlight for many children and we had been told all about it from the children who went to PGL last year. The swing is quite daunting to look at. It is like a giant trapeze suspended high in the sky. You have to have a harness and be safely strapped into it before you can have a turn. Your friends have to use their muscles to pull the rope which winches you as high into the sky as you dear to go. Then you count down 3-2-1....ahhhhh! It's definitely an experience we will cherish from our primary school days.
