Uniform Information

At South Benfleet Primary School we believe that the wearing of school uniform is important as it helps to promote equality and reinforces the sense of belonging to our school learning community.


It is important in a school of over 400 children all wearing the same uniform that all items of clothing are clearly named so that lost items can be quickly reunited with their owners.


Our current school uniform consists of:

  • Green sweatshirt / cardigan with school logo
  • White polo shirt with school logo (remember young children struggle with any buttons)
  • Grey tailored trousers or shorts
  • Grey skirt or pinafore dress
  • Green / white check dresses in summer
  • Black shoes (not trainers).  Please ensure your child can tie their shoelaces or consider Velcro fastening
  • PE bag and book bag - please do not send in large bags as we do not have the storage space
  • Trainers are not allowed to be worn during the school day
  • Boots are not suitable to wear all day in school. In really poor weather wellingtons may be worn to school with a change of shoes for in school use and a bag for the boots
  • Long hair should be tied back for reasons of hygiene and safety.
  • No extreme hair styles, shaved patterns, coloured hair etc.
  • No large hair accessories e.g. large fashion bows etc.  A small bow may be worn on the back of the head
  • Jewellery (other than watches and 'stud' earrings) is not allowed for safety reasons
  • Make up is not permitted in school, including nail varnish


P.E. Kit
