Where excellence and enjoyment go hand in hand


We believe that school uniform helps promote a sense of belonging and pride in our school. We have deliberately made it simple and cost effective in the expectation that all the children will wear it.



Uniform for Pupils

  • Red Manor Leas Sweatshirt or Cardigan (Uniform Direct)

  • Grey Skirt, shorts or Trousers

  • White blouse/school shirt

  • Manor Leas red/grey stripe tie (Uniform Direct)

  • Black sensible school shoes - no boots, sandals, trainers or heels

  • Please note that 'Summer Dresses' are NOT part of school uniform. Shorts, skirts and short sleeve shirts with ties are appropriate for warmer weather.


PE/ Games

Indoors: Red Manor Leas PE tops (Uniform Direct) & Black Shorts with plimsolls

Outdoors: Similar clothing can be worn for outdoor PE but a warm top may be needed on occasions.

Trainers are ideal for both the playing field and playground.



Children require a swimming costume, towel and swimming hat. Girls must wear a one piece costume. Boys should wear trunks - not swimshorts.


Jewellery and accessories

Sensible bows, headbands and other hair ornaments may be worn if they are in keeping with the school uniform (red, grey, white or black)

Large bows, headbands and distracting hair ornaments (such as animal ears) are not to be worn. 

In the interests of safety, children should not wear jewellery, other than ‘studs’ if ears are pierced. These must be removed for all PE activities including swimming.

Large headwear or hair accessories are not permitted unless worn for religious purposes.


Lost Property

Pupils are responsible for their own personal possessions whilst in school. Please name all items of clothing.



Children should not wear jeans to school

We try hard to prevent children getting glue or paint on clothing but accidents are inevitable. If you wish to provide an apron for art, an old shirt makes a really good (and cheap) cover-all.

Children should not bring toys unless asked to do so for a particular reason.

No makeup or nail varnish is to be worn.

Second Hand Uniform


Friends of School Association hold second hand sales periodically throughout the year. These sales are advertised on dojo. However, if you require uniform at other times just ask at the office or message Friends of School on Facebook. If you have good quality uniform, which your child has grown out of, please donate them to Friends of School by leaving them at the school reception.
