It is our policy that all children wear Cobham Primary School's official uniform when attending school or when representing the school in an organised event outside normal school hours.
As well as being practical and smart, we believe that a sensible uniform policy will reinforce a positive learning environment as well as promote a unified school spirit and inspire a sense of pride in our school.
School Uniform items
We require all pupils to wear our school uniform, which consists of:
- White polo shirt or white blouse
- Navy blue school sweatshirt or cardigan with school emblem
- Grey skirt or pinafore
- Grey trousers in the winter
- Plain white socks or navy tights
- Light blue checked summer dress
- School tie (optional!)
- Black school shoes
No decorative colourful hairbands, flowers or clips in hair. (Keep it plain and simple please!)
School sweatshirts, polo shirts and t-shirts bearing the Earl of Darnley coat of arms are available from The Sewing Shop in Echo Square, Gravesend.
Outdoor PE kit needs to be navy tracksuit bottoms, leggings and a warm hoodie/top, waterproof hooded jacket, baseball cap etc - even fingerless gloves as the children are encouraged to go outside in all weathers and participate. If the weather is truly awful, the children would not go out, or would participate for 10-15 mins to get some much needed fresh air!
They need a dry kit for indoor PE and shorts are required for classes such as Powerwave where the children can get very hot and sweaty!
- Navy blue t-shirt with school emblem
- Blue shorts or skort
- Black plimsolls
- Waterproof trainers for outdoor games
- For winter PE sessions – Navy jogging bottoms and sweatshirts/hoodies for cold weather
- Juniors only – One-piece swimming costume, towel, goggles and cap (long hair) for swimming lessons
P.E. Kits should be kept in a named drawstring bag and hung on the child's peg at school. Storage and cloakroom space is limited, so we politely request that parents ensure their children's PE kit bags are small and unobtrusive.
A painting apron or old shirt is useful for messy art and craft activities.
We want our children’s feet to be healthy and flourish, therefore all pupils must wear sensible, well-fitting shoes with an appropriate low heel. Boots are not allowed in the classroom, therefore on bad weather days if your child wears boots to school they must remember to bring their school shoes to change into. Separate trainers can be brought in to wear outside on the field during playtimes.
We respectfully ask all parents to support our school uniform policy and ensure that each child is sent to school dressed appropriately in smart attire for the day of learning ahead
Good condition school uniform items that are no longer required can be donated to the PTA. These items will be available to purchase for a small amount from the various school fairs held throughout the year.
