Our uniform

At Nightingale we believe that school uniform should be both smart and comfortable.   Our uniform consists of grey trousers, shorts, skirt or pinafore dress which can be bought from any standard uniform supplier.  Children in nursery and reception may also choose to wear plain grey tracksuit bottoms with an elasticated waist.   Tights should be grey or dark blue and socks may be grey, black or white.  We have a white polo shirt and dark blue sweatshirt embroidered with the Nightingale School logo that can be purchased from the Trutex shop on Broadway Market.  Footwear must be plain black school shoes or plain black trainers.  Boots are not permitted.   We sell a Nightingale book bag or rucksack though your child may choose to bring a different bag for carrying their home reading book, homework book and important letters.  


PE Uniform

We also have a compulsory PE uniform consisting of a specialist PE shirt and shorts.  In the autumn and spring terms, children may also wear dark blue tracksuit bottoms or leggings.  Children must bring appropriate trainers or plimsolls for PE.  One day of each week your child should wear their PE uniform to school instead of their regular uniform.  You will be informed each term of your child's PE day.  


Labelling and Lost Property

Please ensure that your child’s name is clearly visible on all items of their uniform. Lost property without name labels will be kept for two weeks only in containers accessed via the main office.  After this time it will be sent to a charity shop, or re-cycled into our second hand uniform sales.
