School Uniform

At St Helen's we take pride in our uniform. We believe that by wearing a uniform children develop a sense of pride in, and identify with their school.

Our school uniform colours are jade green and grey. Our uniform provider is Monkhouse. Please see their website for information.

PE Kit

Your child will require a PE kit to be kept in school (until it needs washing!) Please put it in a named dark green drawstring bag that can be hung on a coat hook.

  • House colour T-shirt
  • Black shorts/skort
  • White or grey socks
  • Daps
Additional items
  • St Helen's book bag

We ask that children in Reception and Key Stage 1 have their wet weather clothes in a named light green drawstring bag that is kept in school. Children in Key Stage 2 will need their wet weather clothes on an ad hoc basis and their teachers will let them know when it needs to be brought into school.

Items of PE kit, drawstring bags and book bags are available from Monkhouse, our uniform provider.

Jewellery, Hair Ornaments, Make-up and Nail Varnish

For health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance. Children are required to remove any items during PE lessons to prevent them from causing injury. Please note: Teachers are not permitted to remove earrings.

Hair bands, ribbons/bows or ‘scrunchies’ should be plain. Hair bands should not have large flowers or bows attached.

Make up and nail varnish should not be worn to school unless for an out of school hours function, for example a school disco.

Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school. The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair. Children are not permitted to have hair coloured or dyed, as in accordance with medical guidance and manufacturers restrictions for children aged under 16 year.
