Uniform

School Uniform

 

  • white polo shirt with Longford logo or white blouse or white shirt
  • grey skirt or pinafore dress
  • grey or black trousers or grey or black shorts
  • red sweatshirt/cardigan with school logo
  • grey, black or white socks / grey tights 
  • flat black shoes (no trainers) with buckles, velcro or laces

 

Games Kit

  • white t-shirt with school logo
  • plain black shorts
  • plimsolls (indoor use)
  • trainers (outdoor use)

PE kit should be named and kept in a draw-string bag in school.  We ask children to take their PE kit home at the end of each half term and that parents check that everything still fits – you’d be surprised how quickly they grow out of their plimsolls/trainers!  It would be helpful if all children could dress and undress themselves with the minimum of help.  Please allow them to practise in the summer holidays when there is more time.  Children are not allowed to take part in PE or games without the correct clothing, and it is the responsibility of parents and of the children themselves to ensure that the correct clothing is available at all times during the term.

A black reversible jacket with the Longford School logo is also available to purchase.

We ask that Reception children have wellingtons and a waterproof in school at all times (where possible) for use in all weathers in the outside play area.  Wellington boots must be clearly marked.  A named clothes peg helps keep them together.

The Friends of Longford School (FOLS) operates a second hand uniform shop, see FOLS pages for details.

We appreciate your co-operation in sending your child to school wearing the correct Longford school uniform, but should you feel you are unable to provide the items for financial reasons, do feel free to come and discuss this with Mrs Knipe, in confidence.

Longford School logo

When the Odstock and Britford Schools merged to form Longford School in 2010, plans to create the logo started with a workshop for the children with Mr Redman, Parent Governor, and the team from his design agency.  The children really enjoyed being part of the process, which involved sketching, brainstorming, mind maps and summarizing key ideas.  They agreed the aim of the logo is to identify the school, with themes of joining together, communication and caring for each other.  Ideas included 3 rings joined together, a clover, handholding, 3 trees, animals, hearts and rivers meeting. 

When the final decision was made, the logo was designed by Mr Redman with input from whole school community, including staff, governors and of course the children – this was a great team effort, enjoyed by all.
