Uniform Policy

At Killigrew, we expect all children in the main school (Reception to Y6) to wear a school uniform. Our smart and practical uniform is in place because:

  • It encourages a strong sense of identity, pride and belonging within our school community
  • It sets an appropriate climate and readiness to learn
  • Children are easily recognisable so are safer when travelling to and from school and attending school trips

Winter Uniform

  • Red or white polo shirt or white shirt/blouse
  • Grey skirt, pinafore dress or smart, tailored trousers
  • Red sweatshirt, cardigan or V-neck jumper with the Killigrew logo
  • Red, grey or white tights or white/grey socks
  • Low heeled, closed toe, black, blue or red leather type shoes – no trainers, crocks, long boots or jelly shoes
  • Killigrew fleece (optional-for outdoor use only)
  • A red Killigrew cap for off site trips

Summer Uniform

In addition to the above, red & white checked dresses or grey tailored shorts and white sandals/shoes (closed toe with an ankle strap or T-bar)
