Most clothing retailers or supermarkets offer a wide range of resonably priced items suitable for a school uniform.
Please contact the school office if you would like any support.
The Friends of John Blow (PTA) sell second hand uniform if required.

Children are to have their kit and trainers at school at all times. Children must remove watches and earrings before all PE and games lessons for reasons of safety; safety tape is available in all classrooms to tape up ears if earrings are unable to be removed.
Long hair will need to be tied back during activities which pose a risk of hair becoming tangled (e.g. PE and Design and Technology activities)
Children will need a swimming bag, costume and towel. Girls need a one-piece costume, boys need trunks or close-fitting recognised swimming shorts. In order to wear goggles in swimming lessons, we require a parental consent form (available from the school office).
PE and swimming are part of the National Curriculum and are statutory requirements.
All clothing, footwear and equipment must be clearly marked with the child's name. We cannot accept responsibility for lost clothing.
Children are not permitted to have dyed hair nor wear make-up, excessive hair gel or nail varnish in school.
Jewellery should not be worn in school. The only exception is for pierced ears where studded earrings may be worn. Smart Watches (non-cellular) are permitted in school; if these are causing a distraction to learning, we will ask for them to be removed - if this is the case, we will inform parents of this decision via a phone call.
