  • Navy cardigan  or printed Benington sweatshirt 
  • Navy or white tights.
  • Navy Blue gingham dresses. with white socks.


Please make sure your child has an adequate coat to wear for outdoor activities and playtime every day.


Flat shoes in dark colour i.e. navy or black.  The School Health Service advises that shoes for children should provide adequate support for the children’s growing feet.  Slip on and fashion shoes are not adequate for school and neither are trainers suitable to wear all day long.

In bad weather Wellingtons or other boots are recommended for outdoor wear.  Please ensure that children have other shoes to wear indoors as boots are not suitable to wear all day,


Navy shorts or skorts and plain white Benington T-shirt, to be kept in a drawstring bag.  Large bags are not acceptable as they take up too much cloakroom space.  Black or white plimsolls (preferably elasticated for infants) for outdoor P.E., country dancing, etc.  As our field is often wet and muddy, parents may like to supply an old pair of trainers and a plastic bag to take them home for cleaning.

Hair, Jewellery & Make Up

No jewellery (except watches) nail varnish or make up should NOT be worn in school.  If children have pierced ears, only plain studs (not rings) are acceptable and they need to be removed for P.E. or covered with tape. No hair gel, hair colours or braids should be worn and long hair should be tied back, in the interests of health and safety, using ribbons etc in school colours. Hair styles should not be extreme in appearance nor of an outrageous fashion or design.

All clothing must be clearly named.  Lost property is returned to its owner immediately if it is named.  Any unnamed and unclaimed clothing is taken to local charity shops.
