Our uniform code - be proud to wear it

At Grafton, we believe the wearing of a school uniform gives an immediate sense of belonging to our school community. The high standard we set in appearance is a signal to everyone outside the school of our expectations in effort, work and behaviour. So we have a uniform code that we like our children to adhere to every day.

Our uniform is neat and simple. Polo shirts and jumpers with the school logo can be purchased from Premier School Wear in Becontree Avenue, Dagenham.

    or tracksuit bottom

School P.E. Kit

T-Shirts - White, no wording or pictures. PE tops with the school logo can be bought from Premier School Wear.
Shorts - Red, black, blue, navy, or white with no words or pictures on them 
Footwear - Black plimsolls. Trainers may be worn for outside lessons.

Children may wear grey or black tracksuits or jogging bottoms for games outside when it’s cold.

Please mark all school uniform and P.E. kit clearly with your child’s name. Each child should have a pair of plimsolls and a P.E. kit clearly marked, kept in a bag in the classroom. This should be taken home periodically and at the end of each term to be washed.

Here are a few reminders as to the standards we like to set

  • There is a strict no jewellery policy. The wearing of earrings is not permitted at any time.
    Please note that if your child has earrings on, including studs, plastic, wooden or string forms they will either have to remove them themselves, if capable, or a member of the office team will remove them, with permission from parents only or the parent/carer will be called to the school to help remove them. Children will not be allowed into class with them on.
  • Watches are allowed. Smartwatches are not allowed
  • No nail varnish is permitted at any time, neither are tattoo transfers, false nails or make-up. This is also the case on non-uniform days.
  • any children coming to school wearing inappropriate clothing/shoes will be asked to change into spare clothes. These are stocked in the school and then they can change back at the end of the day. Please note that all worn clothing is washed daily.



It is advisable that if you're thinking to get your child's ears pierced, have this done at the beginning of the summer holiday. Which will leave enough healing time before your child returns to school.


                                                                              Book Bags

In response to your ideas and suggestions regarding pupil bags and book bags, pupils will be able to bring a small school book bag from Monday 28th September.  This is to allow children to carry their reading books and reading records to and from school.

The reason we are asking parents to only send children to school with a slim line book bag is because they need to be stored in their own class trays, following Covid-19 guidelines.

Large rucksacks and back-packs will not be permitted. 

School book bags with the embroidered logo are available to purchase from Premier Schoolwear at a cost of £6.00 each.

Alternatively, you could purchase a plain (without logo) book bag without the school logo at other stores or online.  

We ask that the book bags are red (school colours) and that you ensure that you clearly mark the bag with your child's name and class.
