What to Wear

Our policy for school uniform is to help children feel part of the school community and to avoid the pressures and expense of continually changing fashions in clothes. The school uniform is basically NAVY in colour and consists of :

  • Navy blue school sweatshirt
  • Navy or black trousers or navy shorts
  • Navy skirts or tunics
  • White or pale blue shirts, blouses, or polo shirts
  • Navy polo shirts with school logo
  • Blue/white check or striped dress
  • Black, brown or navy FLAT shoes or sandals

School sweatshirts and polo shirts are on sale in the school office. Please contact the school office for an order form

Second-hand school uniform is available and may be purchased via the Friends of Swainswick School


There are many opportunities at Swainswick for the children to work and play outside.  So please can you make sure that they have a warm, named waterproof coat in school each day, even if you drive to school and they don’t need to wear one to travel to school.

They will have a peg with their name on in the cloakroom for their coat and PE bag

PE kit

This needs to be brought into school and kept on your child’s peg all the time. It is just taken home for washing at the end of each term. Each child needs :

  • Navy shorts
  • Navy school T-shirt or white polo shirt
  • Plimsolls (daps) or trainers
  • Navy tracksuit or navy jogging trousers for outside games
  • A navy sweatshirt to be kept in the PE bag and only used for PE
  • If your child wears tights for school, she will need spare socks in her PE bag too

PE bags and T-shirts can also be ordered from the school office.
