If you are in receipt of school uniform vouchers, please use the paper system and your order will be placed.

In addition, the PTA operate a Thrift Shop, housed in the Dean Park Clinic Building, which sells quality second hand school uniform  and accessories for low prices. The Thrift Shop also sells new school ties (now available in 2 lengths), Dean Park blazer badges and Dean Park water bottles.

FOOTWEAR – pupils wear their outdoor shoes all day at school. It should be noted that trainers are not part of school uniform. When wellies or snow boots are worn to school pupils should bring a change of shoes for indoors.

PE – all pupils are required to change for PE and the appropriate clothing and footwear for PE should be worn. These are necessary for health and safety reasons and your co-operation is requested to ensure that pupils are equipped to participate in the PE lessons. Football colours are not permitted.

The following approved kit is needed on all PE days and should be kept in a gym bag at school:

  • Navy or black shorts
  • Gym t-shirt with school logo or plain white t-shirt
  • White socks
  • Dark jogging bottoms
  • Gym shoes with non-marking soles.
  • Long hair should be tied back for gym and all jewellery should be removed.

ACTIVE WEDNESDAY – all pupils participate in Active Wednesday. Children are permitted to attend school on a Wednesday wearing navy/black jogging bottoms and trainers. They are still required to wear their school sweatshirt and polo shirt. Active Wednesday will take place even in the event of inclement weather, therefore it is advisable for children to bring an additional change of clothing that day.

We strongly encourage the labelling of ALL clothing and accessories worn to school.
