Southwold Primary School


All uniform is available to purchase from Brigade Clothing.  To place an order please go to: and search for "SOUTHWOLD PRIMARY SCHOOL".


School uniform is an important part of school life as it helps to create and foster a sense of community and a feeling of belonging.  It demonstrates to children that there are codes of conduct and dress in society, especially in the working environment.  We ask that all parents support us in ensuring that their children wear the correct uniform and are smart and presentable.  We ask the children to ensure that they take care of their uniform and take pride in their appearance.

A smart appearance both in dress and hairstyle will convey a positive message about how a person values themselves and how they may fit into any learning or working community.  In addition, your child will be representing our school when they learn off site at sports competitions, museum visits, residential visits.

If your child has any medical issues which require an adaptation of the uniform, please bring a letter from your GP or consultant and we will be happy to discuss this with you.

Please use your common sense when choosing hairstyles for your child.  Whilst the school does not wish to dictate exact lengths or acceptable styles, it is important that you consider what the ethos of our school aims to encourage.

We encourage the use of second hand uniform so please contact us to see if we have any pre-loved uniform at the school and any proceeds made will go towards our school's development.  Also, local charity shops are often a great source of uniform items, and we certainly recommend visiting them.

We welcome any donations of unneeded uniform. Please contact the office if you have anything you wish to donate, so a drop-off can be arranged. 

Please also be aware that Uniform does not need to have the school logo, as long as it is the school colours it is perfectly acceptable. 

Consortium Trust is committed to the communities which our schools serve, and the families of our pupils.  We hope that the following information answers some of the questions you may have about our Trust, schools and nurseries.
