What to wear to school

Ensuring that your child is appropriately dressed for school is very important. Wearing school uniform helps children to develop a sense of belonging as well as being practical for all school activities.

The same uniform is worn across the whole school and is based on the school colours of red and green. 

All Oatlands Children are expected to wear a green jumper or cardigan branded with the school logo.  They must also have a red Oatlands bookbag and a red, drawstring PE bag. These, and other Oatlands branded items, can be ordered from our school uniform supplier School Uniform Direct (click here to access the Oatlands pages of their website) or can be bought 2nd hand from the PTA (see details right)  

In addition to the green Oatlands branded cardigan or jumper, children should be dressed in their choice of the following items:

  • White shirt, blouse or polo shirt.

  • Grey trousers, shorts, skirt or pinafore.

  • Grey or white socks

  • Grey or green tights
