Uniform & Equipment
We endeavour to achieve a high standard in all of our activities at our school and we expect this to be reflected both in the appearance and behaviour of our students.
All students must have full school uniform, worn correctly, for daily attendance at school. Uniform will also be worn on occasions when children are representing the school, including school visits.
Parents and carers are asked to co-operate fully by providing the uniform and ensuring children wear it correctly to and from school, and at other times as required.
The school offers the full range of uniform, PE Kit and accessories for pupils which can be purchased directly from our uniform supplier, Trutex.
If you are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and/or the Pupil Premium grant, you are entitled to a discount for your uniform. In order to receive this, you must visit the Trutex shop in Didcot where the school has provided names of all those that are eligible, where the discount will be applied. This must be done in store.
Covid-19 Update from Trutex:
The new layout of the shop will enable us to serve customers in a safe way, observing the 2 metre social distancing rules and minimising risk.
We would ask if you could encourage parents to obtain school uniform using our website www.myschoolwear.co.uk where possible during the current situation.
The fitting rooms at the shop will be closed and customers encouraged to try items of uniform on at home. We are happy to exchange anything that is the incorrect size as long as it is returned in a saleable condition.
Our Facebook page Trutex Didcot is where more information and updates will be posted.
