School Uniform

School uniform was introduced to give children a sense of purpose, of belonging and identity. Schools where the standards of pupils have risen dramatically state the introduction of school uniform as being a contributory factor, it ensures children are always dressed appropriately, removes opportunities for bullying and relieves financial pressure on families.


We understand that uniform is expensive and that families are under financial strain so, even though uniform with the school logo is preferred, plain uniform is permitted.


Uniform at Chaucer Junior School


Navy blue or red jumpers with the Chaucer Junior School logo are preferred, but jumpers in the school colours without a logo are acceptable. Sportswear or sweatshirts with hoods are not acceptable.


Shirt, Blouse or Polo shirt

White polo shirts with the Chaucer Junior School badge are preferred, but a plain white shirt, blouse, t-shirt or polo shirt is acceptable.


Trousers and Shorts

Trousers and shorts should be black, grey or navy blue. Any shorts that are worn should be ‘tailored shorts’. Three quarter length trousers and football shorts are not acceptable.


Skirts, Dresses and Pinafores

Skirts and pinafores should be black, grey or navy blue. Blue or red gingham check dresses may be worn, especially during the summer months.



Black school shoes or boots should be worn. High heels or shoes without backs are not acceptable. Black trainers are acceptable but not preferred. Any other colour of training shoe should only be worn on PE days or changed into at lunch time for participation in lunch time activities such as football.


PE Kit

PE kits should consist of the following:

  • a plain white t-shirt
  • shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms in black, dark grey or navy blue
  • school jumper or plain tracksuit top in black, dark grey or navy blue if the weather is cooler and the lesson is  outside
  • plain trainers - plimsolls are not recommended plimsolls as they are unsuitable for outdoor activities


All children should come to school wearing their PE kit on their PE day and jumpers or hoodies which are branded or have slogans are not allowed.


Coats and Fleeces

A plain coat or fleece may be worn in cold weather. Hooded tops and coats/tops with pictures or writing on are not acceptable. Coats should have a hook on them so that they can be securely hung on a peg.


Alternative Footwear

On days when the weather is wet and wellies are worn, children should always bring a pair of shoes to change into. A peg to clip their boots together would also be helpful under these circumstances.


Please Note

All clothes should be clearly labelled with the child’s name. Many children wear clothes of a similar kind and this can lead to confusion. We expect children to take responsibility for keeping their clothes and belongings safe.



The school has a no jewellery policy including body piercings. Ornamental jewellery of any type is not allowed to be worn but a small stud may be worn in the case of newly pierced ears. However, the child will not be allowed to do P.E. or swimming unless these too are removed or covered with tape.


Finger Nails

We would like nails to be kept reasonably short and false nails are not permitted - this is for the safety of all children, particularly during PE and playtime.


Smart Watches

Pupils are allowed to wear wristwatches and Fitbit style devices during the day but not during PE for safety reasons. Smart watches are not allowed to be worn if they are connected to a mobile phone thus allowing messages to be shared. Also, no watches that can be used as a camera should be worn.
