Coppice Farm Primary School

A small school with a HUGE heart!

School Uniform

School uniforms can create a sense of identity and community for a school and its pupils, reduce peer pressure for the latest clothes and help children feel settled and prepared for lessons, but they can be costly for parents. Here at Coppice Farm, whilst uniform with the school's name is worn by many pupils, we appreciate that such items are more costly and may be beyond many budgets. Therefore, plain, non-branded red jumpers, cardigans and fleeces can be worn - these are available in many local supermarkets and stores at budget-friendly prices.

11th June 2020 - Important information from our school uniform provider for back to school 2020/21 - View the information here.

Other makes in the same colours are fine, however no logos, writing or patterns other than Coppice Farm are allowed.

Please ensure that all items of clothing are named so lost items can quickly be identified and returned.

The school governors encourage every child to wear school uniform – in a recent survey 100% of parents who responded wanted a uniform.

We ask that children do not wear any jewellery in school other than a watch and plain stud earrings. 

All jewellery (including stud earrings) will have to be removed for PE and swimming.


LKS2 children have an opportunity to swim during each school year at Carlton Forum Leisure Centre.

For this they will need a costume or trunks and a towel.  Bikinis, and shorts for boys, are not permitted.
