The Butts Primary School

School Uniform

We encourage children to take a pride in wearing their school uniform as we believe that it helps to achieve a sense of belonging and identity. For further details, please refer to our School Uniform Policy.

The items listed below are required unless stated otherwise. However, it is not compulsory for children to wear items bearing the school logo and it is acceptable for them to wear generic plain items available from high street and online retailers in the same colour.   

On the days that children have PE, they are able to come into school wearing their PE Kit together with a green cardigan or jumper/sweatshirt and dark jogging/tracksuit bottoms. 

Our Uniform

  • grey trousers, shorts, skirt or pinafore dress
  • white polo shirts or blouses
  • green cardigans or jumpers/sweatshirts
  • green and white dresses may be worn in warmer weather (optional)
  • PE kit - green shorts and white or optional house colour T- shirts, plus dark jogging/tracksuits bottoms.

Uniform bearing the school logo is available to order direct from Price and Buckland and you are able to choose whether to have your order sent to your home address or to the school for you to collect.

If you have any questions or concerns about our school uniform please contact the School Office


Shoes should be sensible i.e. not open sandals. Whilst trainers or plimsolls are perfectly acceptable for PE they are not considered suitable for wearing all day except on the days that children have PE and come into school wearing their PE Kit.

Secondhand Uniform

From time-to-time, Friends of The Butts School (FOBS) will hold a second-hand uniform sale. These will be advertised and communications sent out in well in advance. Items are sold in return for donations rather than at set prices. All proceeds go to FOBS and are used towards funding experiences, activities and equipment for our children.

Hair and Make-Up

Hair should be neat and if long, tied back. Pupils should not come to school with hair dye applied. Make-up and nail polish should not be worn by pupils in school. 


Watches and small objects of religious significance or items such as medi-alert bracelets may be worn but other jewellery such as necklaces and rings are not permitted. Discreet earrings may be worn but must be taken out or taped for PE. If your child is not able to remove earrings themselves, please either remove them or tape them before they come to school on days that they have PE.

Outdoor Wear

As a school, we are very keen to promote a love of the outdoors to our pupils. Our teachers are encouraged to incorporate Outdoor Learning across the National Curriculum and therefore we do spend a lot of time outside. It would be very helpful if your child could keep a pair of wellington boots at school and that they bring clothes which are suitable for the weather conditions e.g. rain coats, sun hats.  


Please ensure that all items of uniform and clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name. This will help us to return it to your child should it go astray. Any unmarked items will be taken to the School Office and can be claimed from there. If you think your child has lost lost an item of uniform, please do ask at the office.

 Bags / Rucksacks and Pencil Cases

Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 should bring a bookbag to school, although this does not have to be one bearing the school logo.

Children in Key Stage 2 may bring a rucksack instead of a bookbag.

Children in Years 5 and 6 may also bring a pencil case to school if they wish to.

In all cases, items must be clearly marked with the child's name.
