We believe that wearing school uniform has a positive impact:
- it promotes a sense of pride
- it engenders a sense of community and belonging
- it helps to easily identify Ladybridge pupils
- it prevents the wearing of anything that might cause a distraction to learning
- it promotes equality between pupils
- it supports parents in providing an agreed set of clothes
- it supports health and safety.
The uniform consists of:
Navy blue jumper or cardigan
White polo shirt
Dark grey/black trousers (or shorts for summer)
Dark grey skirt/skort or pinafore dress
Summer dress - blue check
Black, grey or white socks and tights
Black sensible school shoes
Please note: Optional Book Bags are available to purchase from the school office (£4 each)
Navy blue shorts
White round neck t-shirt
When taking part in PE, children with long hair will be expected to tie it back. Children are allowed to wear a tracksuit for outdoor PE sessions (applicable from year one). If your child is unable to do PE, then please ensure that you have informed the class teacher.
Please note: The only jewellery allowed in school is one pair of stud earrings and a wristwatch. However, where pupils wish to wear jewellery of religious significance, parents must inform the school. Pupils must be able to remove these objects for P.E.
For pupils who wear headscarves, these must be of a non-distracting nature (plain and either black, white or dark blue in colour). Headscarves must be removed for P.E. lessons.
‘Extreme’ haircuts (including ‘shaved’ patterns) and dyed hair that we consider distracting, are not allowed.
Our uniform with the school logo is available from ‘Whittakers' situated on Deansgate, Bolton and 'Smart Clothing' on Blackhorse Street, Bolton. Alternatively, plain uniform can be purchased from a range of other retail outlets.
