School Uniform

School Uniform Policy

The School Governors have made the wearing of school uniform compulsory for many years. School uniform (items with the school logo) can be ordered online at https://www.schooltrends.co.uk/uniform/DronfieldJuniorSchoolS181RY (our unique parent ordering page), from Crystal Peaks Market or from Dronfield Ski and Sport, 53-55 Sheffield Road, Dronfield, S18 2GF.  Non-logoed school uniform can be purchased from supermarkets or high street stores.  

We endeavour to ensure that our uniform is as gender neutral as possible.  A small sample of uniform is kept in school for the purpose of trying on for size.

Our uniform is as follows:

  • Plain burgundy sweatshirt or plain burgundy cardigan (with or without the school logo)
  • Plain sky-blue polo shirt (with or without the school logo)
  • Grey or black formal trousers
  • Plain grey or black pinafore dress (optional)
  • Grey or black knee length skirt (in summer, a blue and white summer dress may be worn, (optional))
  • Grey or black shorts
  • Smart, black, sensible shoes, plain black trainers, smart flat dark coloured boots
  • Grey, black or white socks
  • Grey or black tights
  • Burgundy waterproof coat (optional)

Items which are not allowed to be worn:

  • Tracksuit bottoms, jeans, combats, leggings, casual shorts, hot pants, mini-skirts or skinny trousers.
  • Inner layers which can be seen above the polo shirt collar.
  • Cycling shorts are not permitted in day-to-day uniform. White cycling shorts can be worn underneath, for modesty, if preferred.
  • Converse, Ugg Boots, ballet shoes or open-toed sandals are not considered suitable footwear for school.

All items of clothing and footwear must be labelled with the child’s name.

Physical Education

Our PE Kit

In recent years, we have asked that children come to school dressed in their PE kit on their PE days. We really value the impact this has had as there is no lesson time wasted due to getting changed and we have less lost property around school. However, we also feel it is really important that we maintain our high standards of uniform appearance as it is conducive to a calm and purposeful learning atmosphere. Children should come into school on the day of their PE lesson wearing their PE kit. They can wear it for the full school day.

Parents/carers are responsible for ensuring their child is dressed appropriately for PE.

The PE kit is as follows:

  • Plain T-shirt in their house colour (with or without the school logo) (Haddon – redHardwick – yellowPeveril – greenChatsworth – blue)
  • Normal school sweatshirt / cardigan or plain black hoodie/zip-up hoodie
  • Plain black jogging bottoms
  • Plain black knee-length shorts, either loose fitting or knee-length cycle shorts
  • Plain, suitable trainers or black pumps

Plain jogging bottoms, are preferred. However, a small, branded logo is acceptable. All items of clothing and footwear must be labelled with the child’s name.


The wearing of jewellery at school, particularly earrings, can cause considerable safety problems especially in PE and Games lessons. 

We only allow stud earrings which must be taped over for PE. The Governors request that your child does not wear jewellery (including bracelets) at school. Watches are allowed.

Lost Property

We do have a lost property ‘bin’, which is kept in the Den.

Second Hand Uniform

 Towards the end of each academic year, the ECO Committee will ask for donations of good quality uniform.  They will then make this second hand uniform available to parents / carers for an optional small donation towards school funds.
