For the academic year 2022-23, we have changed both our uniform and the provider.
We have now moved our uniform to Gift and Stitch in Aspatria. We want to support local companies, whilst also making the uniform more accessible for parents. You can visit the shop to try on uniform, or, visit the website at https://www.giftandstitch.com/store/c103/Oughterside_School_Uniform.html
Another big change is the removal of the school tie from the uniform. As a staff, we truly believe that children need to be comfortable in their clothing in order to learn most effectively. We also believe in equality and accessibility for all. Our changes to the uniform mean that it is now more affordable for families too.

Hair Cuts, Jewellery and Mobile Telephones
1. The children are expected to have neat, tidy and traditional hair styles. The school does not permit “extreme” haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children. Fashion hair cuts such as tram lines, bizarre styles or brightly dyed hair are not classed as acceptable.
2. For safety reasons, ear-rings are not permitted: this includes studs. If a child has had their ears pierced and are unable to remove them for a number of weeks, these studs must be covered by plasters.
3. Decorative and expensive jewellery is not appropriate for school and thusly not permitted. Watches may be worn, at your child’s own risk. It is advised that children take off watches for P.E.
4. Mobile telephones are not required. Should there be good reason for a child to carry a mobile on a particular occasion, it should be handed in to the School Office for safe keeping.
