Carr Junior School


We believe that wearing a school uniform creates an important identity for all children at Carr Junior School.  We hope that children wear their uniform smartly and with pride.  It is expected that all children come to school in their uniform including school shoes.


To make it as easy as possible, many items of uniform including the cardigans and sweatshirts are sold at reception and can be ordered and paid for online via ParentPay.



What does your child need to wear?


Girls - burgundy sweatshirt or cardigan or jumper, white shirt or Polo shirt or blouse, grey skirt of regular length / trousers / culottes. In summer a red checked or striped dress would be appropriate. Black shoes.

Boys - burgundy sweatshirt or cardigan or jumper, white shirt or Polo shirt, grey trousers.

Black shoes.

For P.E. black or navy shorts with a white T-shirt.


Some of these items are available from Reception, others may be purchased at shops that sell school wear, eg M&S, TESCO, ASDA.


We try to remind children on hot days that they need to cover up from the dangerous sun’s rays and have loose fitting clothing which will keep them cool.  We are supportive of children wearing sun creams or sun block, to be applied at home before school.  We will try to make sure they enjoy the sunshine and outdoor play but are conscious of the danger of lengthy times in the sun.  Hats/caps are also acceptable for children to wear during break times.  We do shorten break times if the weather is exceptionally hot and also take children to stay in the shade to cool down. If you wish your child to have sunscreen in school, it must be the solid stick variety.


The following items of Uniform may be available from the school office.  Items are to be paid via ParentPay, please ask at the office for details.  Once ordered, items will be available from 3pm the following Friday from the office.
