At Rathmell School children are expected to wear a uniform, consisting of a white/blue shirt, grey or black trousers/shorts or skirts and a blue school sweatshirt/cardigan. Girls may wear blue gingham dresses during the summer months.


Other optional items are available, as listed on the school uniform order form.


Children are expected:


  • To wear low heeled footwear(not trainers).
  • To have all uniform clearly named.
  • Not to wear jewellery to school as this is a safety issue.
  • Hair of shoulder length or longer should be tied back at all times.
  • We encourage children to wear hats when outside during the summer months.


PE Kit


This should consist of;

  • Shorts
  • Jogging bottoms
  • Sweatshirt (other than school uniform)
  • Socks
  • Black pumps
  • Trainers can be worn for outdoor PE


Parents are not expected to buy a special kit, suitable old clothes are appropriate, therefore not necessitating extra expenditure. Kit should be in a suitable bag which can be hung on the child’s coat peg, in the cloakroom.
