Our uniform

We want our students to be proud to be a part of the Charles Darwin community and represent the school positively, so it is important that they are always smartly dressed.

Our uniform supplier is Stevensons on Ber Street – all items marked with an asterisk must be bought from here. See their website for contact details and opening times.

Bags and coats

  • Coats are to be smart without large logos and branding. We would encourage parents to choose coats with reflective strips, for safety. Hoodies are not permitted.
  • No school bags need to be brought to school for Key Stage 1 students - the Charles Darwin book bag and a lunch box are sufficient.
  • Key Stage 2 students - bags should be without large logos and branding. Bags need to be suitable for carrying student books and equipment eg. backpack or satchel styles.
  • Students will need a Charles Darwin book bag when starting at the school, for which there is a £2 charge.

Uniform rules

  • One pair of small metal stud earrings may be worn. 
  • No rings, necklaces, or bracelets are to be worn, apart from Medical Alert jewellery.
  • A watch may be worn.
  • Make up is not to be worn. Nail varnish should not be worn.
  • Hair styles and colours should not be extreme. We would strongly suggest that parents discuss hairstyles and colours with the school beforehand if they are in any doubt as to whether they might be considered extreme. This will avoid potential issues.
