We believe that wearing a smart school uniform brings a sense of pride and belonging. We are proud of our school uniform and all children are expected to wear it. Items of school uniform may be purchased from The School Uniform Shop (Harehills). Major chain stores also carry stock, which fits in with our uniform requirements. We believe that the wearing of uniform gives a sense of belonging and pride in our school. Our uniform is as follows:

Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly named
Our school uniform is supplied by The School Uniform Shop on Harehills Lane. Children will need an appropriate outdoor coat to be worn on top of their uniform when the weather requires this. Children will need sun hats and sun cream as appropriate in the summer. Please apply sun cream before the school day starts as we cannot do this at school.
Long hair must be tied back. Girls may wear one pair of small gold or silver studs. These will need to be taken out or covered for P.E., so it is more convenient if they don’t wear them at all. Children may wear a sensible watch, but no other jewellery unless it is of specific religious significance. No nail varnish or make up should be worn at school.
Children will not need to bring any equipment to school such as pencil cases, books or personal bags. Everything they need will be provided for them. Children should not bring additional items to school as these can easily get lost and distract children from their learning. Occasionally children will be asked to bring in things which are relevant to a school topic or activity, in these cases please make sure that all these items are carefully labelled.
Reading is a crucial part of children’s early development. At Temple Learning Academy we will use the Read Write Inc. programme for reading and phonics development. As part of this, children will be set reading tasks to complete at home. It is therefore crucial that every child has a book bag which is brought to school every day in order that these skills can be developed. They also ensure notes and vital information is not lost between school and home. Book bags can be purchased from the school.
PE kit bags
As PE can take place indoors or outdoors pupils need all items with them in a drawstring kit bag. This will stay in school and come home each holiday for washing.
- Black PE shorts
- Plain white T shirt
- Trainers (for outdoor lessons that can stay in school)
PE kit is only required for pupils in Year 1 and above. Children are encouraged to keep their PE kits in school. They should be stored in a kit bag.
All items must be clearly labelled. Items do occasionally go missing at school. We will only be able to help you in finding items if they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
