We are proud of our school uniform. We believe our uniform makes a positive statement about the high expectations of our school, gives children a sense of pride in their shared school community, and supports both staff and parents to fulfil our commitment to equality. We will work closely with parents to maintain our high standards and support our pupils to be proud of wearing their uniform.
Where a family might face problems in providing correct uniform, or in any temporary circumstance where an incorrect uniform is likely, we request that parents contact the school in order that we might understand and offer support. Uniform will be checked regularly and if the school is aware of any problems it can save children being questioned unnecessarily.
Ordering and Purchasing Uniform
Our uniform can be purchased at J Smith & Sons (Lancaster Road) or on line by logging into https://www.smithsschoolwear.co.uk/store/
Enter “Forty Hill” in the search section and the uniform will appear.
You can also purchase general uniform items (those without our logo) from other suppliers e.g. Marks and Spencer and supermarkets
PE Kit is recognised as an important part of the school uniform and must be in school every day as the ‘PE Day’ can change and active learning opportunities can arise where a PE kit is more appropriate uniform. We will encourage children to take their PE kits home every half term for washing. For health and safety reasons, children will be required to remove their jewellery or cover stud earrings with tape.
The school can not be held responsible for loss or damage to jewellery.

Clothing must be clearly marked with your child’s name. It is amazing how many green jumpers we have at the school!
Black school shoes (not trainers, boots or sandals)
Footwear should be confined to shoes that support the foot and are comfortable; not a fashion statement, high heeled shoes or boots. The children are encouraged at all times to ensure the shoes are correctly fixed on their feet. Younger children wearing shoes with laces must be able to tie their own laces.
Only stud earrings and a simple watch are allowed to be worn to school. Bracelets, necklaces or rings are not to be worn at any time. Children will be required to remove any items worn unless for religious reasons that have been notified to the Headteacher in writing. The school will not be responsible for these items. Nail varnish is not allowed to be worn in school, and will be removed if worn.
For safety reasons, long hair must be tied back with an appropriate fastening at all times (this applies to girls and boys). All fastenings need to be grey, black or green and should be small and indiscreet.
