All children need elastic fronted plimsolls for outdoor PE which are best kept in a drawstring bag on their cloakroom peg. Children will need black/blue shorts and a white T-shirt in their PE bag to wear for PE lessons. 
For safety reasons long trousers and tights have to be removed for PE lessons.


Jewellery is generally not allowed in school for two main reasons: Firstly, if it is lost it is difficult to trace and causes a great deal of upset and, secondly, it is a constant source of accidents in schools. One exception to this rule is the small stud earrings. However, these should be very small and not protrude much from the ear lobe. Your support in this matter will be greatly appreciated and will help us in our constant efforts to ensure the children's safety at school.

Long hair

Long hair should be tied back at all times. Tramlines and Mohawk or other extreme haircuts are not permitted during term times. Other fashion accessories such as nail varnish and make-up are not acceptable in school.


Children must wear black school shoes; fashion boots are NOT acceptable. Boots may only be
worn when the weather is wet. Please do not send your child to school in boots as they will be reminded that shoes should be worn. Trainers are also NOT acceptable. Please support us as we enforce this dress code to help all children look smart and school- ready.


Please be aware the only caps to be worn at school are the plain blue Woodside caps. Other styles are not part of our school uniform. Please see the school office where they are available to buy.

All articles of clothing, bags, footwear etc., should be clearly marked with the owner's name. Watches should, if possible, have the owner's name engraved on the back and, if taken off, must be handed to a teacher for safekeeping.

Should you wish to purchase school jumpers and cardigans bearing the school logo, these can be purchased from our uniform provider Hewitts in Croydon. Alternatively, royal blue jumpers and cardigans can be purchased from most supermarkets or second-hand shops. This includes all items of school uniform, expensive or designer fashion is not a requirement of school uniform and often causes upset if these items are lost.

Smart Watches

Please note; we do not allow smart watches in school. This means any watch that can take photos and send or receive any data with Internet compatibilities.
