School Uniform 2022-23
Glodwick School Uniform is compulsory although our school sweatshirt is the only branded item of clothing.
We expect all of our children to wear the school colours each day. This supports our aim for our children to be identifiable as part of our special school community.
The school colours are PURPLE, GREY AND WHITE.
The branded school sweatshirt can only be purchased from the school office. It has a high cotton content because many of our children suffer from eczema and this helps them to feel more comfortable.
School sweatshirts are £11 each.
We accept generic cardigans in purple and plain purple sweatshirts, but prefer everyone to wear the school sweatshirt wherever possible. We offer second hand sweatshirts, free of charge, via the Head Teacher/School Office according to need. We also support families struggling to provide uniform on a case by case basis. This is managed discreetly and at the discretion of the Head Teacher.
PE bags are sold from the school office, but all children starting our school in their Reception Year receive a free PE bag with items to support their transition into Reception such as underwear, a knife and fork, a picture book, a photograph of their new teacher etc.
PE bags cost £4 each.
Reading is promoted throughout our school as a life skill. We endeavour to instil in our children the love of books and reading. We sell Book Bags from our school office. They are £4 each and easily last for the duration of your child’s learning career at our school.
