Sweatshirts, cardigans and polo shirts may be embellished with the school crest if you wish but this is not a necessary part of the uniform.

Both boys and girls should wear sensible black footwear, not trainers, fashion shoes with heels or high boots. Summer sandals should be black brown or navy blue and fit securely with no open toes.

We encourage the wearing of sun caps to protect the head and neck during summer months. Blue crested ones are available, although other sensible styles are acceptable.

PE

All Pupils

  • Black pumps and PE bag
  • White tee shirt and royal blue shorts
  • Trainers for outdoor PE
  • Tracksuits are allowed during winter months depending on the activity taking place.

Other items of clothing with the school crest such as caps, fleece jackets and rainproof jackets are available from local suppliers. Whilst very practical and attractive, these are not a necessary part of the uniform. We do not insist on the school badge on items of clothing but if you wish to purchase them they can be found at Clothing4 Schools in Swadlincote. Items may also be viewed on their website:   https://clothing4schools.com/173-st-edward-s-catholic-academy

ALL ITEMS WORN IN SCHOOL SHOULD BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME—MANY ITEMS OF CLOTHING GET MISLAID

We have a number of good quality used items which have been donated to school after being outgrown. Parents may wish to utilise these in exchange for a small donation.

Jewellery

No jewellery is to be worn other than a watch and a small cross or medal on a chain if wished. Any items worn are the child’s responsibility; the school is unable to accept responsibility for lost or damaged items. Plain stud earrings only are allowed for pierced ears and these should always be removed for PE classes and MUST be removed for swimming.
Children are not allowed to wear nail varnish. Extreme hairstyles are also not permitted.
