For Parents/Carers

Uniform & Appearance

Rossett Acre - Reading Outdoors - 2023 (2)

So that no child feels singled out, it is expected that children wear school uniform.

Printable Uniform Sheet

For Early Years only:

Black/grey school trousers or joggers .

This is our school preference to facilitate the curriculum requirements for Early Years, where a key area is physical development. This ensures children are comfortable and able to move freely. However, if you prefer, you may send your child in normal school uniform (see Years 1-6).

For Years 1-6:

  • Grey long or short trousers.
  • Grey skirt or trousers (optional in the summer term: blue & white checked school dress).

For all years:

These items are readily available from most high street shops.

  • White/light blue shirt or polo shirt.
  • Navy blue cardigan/jumper or Rossett Acre sweatshirt.
  • White/navy blue/grey socks or tights.

Items with the school logo (eg sweatshirts, t-shirts, fleeces, book bags etc.) can be purchased directly from:

  • Emblazon 37-39 Tower Street, Harrogate, HG1 1HS
  • Rawcliffes 63 East Parade, Harrogate, HG1 5BG
  • My Clothing Limited (was previously Tesco Clothing) -

Rossett Acre

Physical Education - Clothing

For indoor gymnastics or dance work:

  • a pair of shorts (not leggings, tracksuit or Lycra pants).
  • a t-shirt (not a huge baggy one as this can become caught on apparatus). T-shirts are available in house colours/designs from Emblazon or Rawcliffes (details on the school uniform page) should you wish to purchase one. Alternatively, depending on which house your child is chosen to represent, a plain blue, red, yellow or green t-shirt will be needed. Please don’t buy a coloured t-shirt until you know your child’s house colour.
  • children should not wear football kits.

Early Years

  • T.shirt and shorts only.
  • PE shoes and tracksuits are not required. The class teacher will inform you if this changes.

For outdoor games:



  • PE shoes/trainers (Velcro type)
  • Warm top and jogging bottoms for outdoor games.
  • Trainers or similar
  • Warm top and jogging bottoms for outdoor games.


Please note: Black or dark coloured school shoes should be worn in school on a day to day basis and not trainers or brightly coloured shoes. If trainers have been worn for a specific reason (that has been discussed with your child’s class teacher and agreed), then a different pair of trainers will be needed for PE as trainers used for PE often get very muddy. Additionally, clean trainers are a requirement of using our Multi-Sports Pitch.

These clothing requirements also apply to all after-school clubs. All clothing must be labelled and it would be helpful if a PE bag (of the string-pull type) could be provided to house the kit. This needs to go home at least every half-term to be washed.

A large, old shirt to be used as a painting overall should also be provided, or you can purchase an overall from Emblazon (see above for contact details). If your child is in Early Years, they do not need to bring a painting overall.

No jewellery should be worn in school. Watches and a small pair of stud earrings are the exception (no Smart watches e.g. those that can make phone calls, record or connect to the internet). Hair – shoulder length or longer should be tied back for PE and Games. Earrings  must be taken out or taped over by the child for PE and Games.

Please note: The Headteacher’s decision is final in relation to what is accepted as ‘small stud earrings.’


Swimming usually takes place in Years 2 & 4 at the Hydro, Harrogate. However, year groups swimming are subject to change. Year 5 and 6 children may receive top up swimming lessons if they are unable to swim 25 metres.

Swimming hats must be worn and boys must wear trunks.
