Uniform

At Valley Invicta Primary School at East Borough, we believe that excellent uniform is part of setting high academic standards. As a result, pupils will be expected to adhere to our uniform requirements at all times.

This means that uniform must be worn correctly both in and out of school. All items of uniform are available from our supplier, Pages - https://pages-schoolwear.co.uk/ - with some items available from other stores.

A full list of uniform can be found in the table below, with more detailed information in the pop-out sections at the bottom of the page.

This list was reviewed in September 2022 to reflect new legislation around school uniform affordability. A number of items which previously had to be purchased through our school uniform suppliers can now be purchased at any retailer.

Please note, also, that some items which were previously compulsory have now been made optional. If you wish to discuss any aspect of school uniform, please contact the school office.
