Castle Acre Primary School

Our Uniform

Uniform is an important part of our school and Federation life, as it demonstrates that we are all a team together and it enables all children to have equity of clothing. No family should have to worry about the cost of uniform and no child should be disadvantaged. Birds of Dereham provide our items of uniform which have a logo and we also stock 'Nearly new' uniform in school, available at a cost of £1 an item, or you can bring an item to swap. Summer dresses, polo shirts, trousers, shorts, PE t-shirts, PE shorts and tracksuits can all be bought anywhere, as can shoes and socks. 

Children should wear the following school uniform:

  • Purple sweatshirt or cardigan
  • White school or polo shirt  - a logo polo shirt is available but a plain one is acceptable
  • Grey trousers or shorts
  • Grey skirt or pinafore dress
  • Plain white, grey or purple tights or socks
  • Black smart/comfortable school shoes - please note that these should have a flat heel
  • Purple hoody for PE and trips 

     Summer uniform item:

     Purple checked Summer dress

PE kit

  • Purple hoody 
  • Plain white round-neck T-shirt
  • Black shorts
  • Plain navy tracksuit – no writing
  • Outdoor trainers
  • Suitable sport socks or grey or white school socks
  • Drawstring PE bag

Y6 have their own Federation polo shirt, which is Navy and with our Federation logo shirt. They also have a Federation Y6 fleece which is sourced by school in the Summer term before the children join Y6. 

All items must be named. 

The wearing of small stud earrings is permitted, but these must be removed for P.E. lessons unless a disclaimer is completed by the child's parent/carer. Religious items that cannot be removed, watches and SOS talismans for recognised medical conditions may also be worn; other jewellery should not be worn.

Financial assistance can be made available to help purchase uniform, so please contact the office. Second hand uniform is available via the school office or from The Friends' Nearly new uniform stock.

Named wellies or another pair of outdoor shoes, separate to PE trainers, are needed for playtimes in the Autumn and Winter so that children can go on the field, which does get muddy.

 All our uniform is available to purchase directly or via the internet from Birds of Dereham. They have a full website and a map with directions and here is the link to Castle Acre uniform on their website:
