Uniform shows that we are in a community. Wearing it says we’re all in this together.

We encourage students to take pride in themselves and their appearance at all times. Our uniform prepares students for the world of work; is practical and smart and helps our students develop a sense of belonging in our academy community.

Uniform Exchange

We also have a Uniform exchange here at Co-op Academy Friarswood. It is a great way of recycling any uniform that your child has grown out of. All we ask is that you donate any unused uniform back to us. We have had lots of generous donations. Please come along and see if we have your child’s size, we have items from Nursery age all the way upto Year 6. The Uniform Exchange can be found at the Junior entrance/exit at the beginning and end of the day.

Clothes for Outdoor Learning Activities

Within the Nursery and Reception classes, the curriculum includes learning experiences and activities both indoors and outdoors. For these activities, the children need to have suitable outdoor clothing.

  • Coat/jacket (preferably with a hood)
  • Wellies (to remain at school)
  • Sun hat and sun cream(for warmer weather)

We would be extremely grateful if your child could bring a hooded coat EVERY DAY even if the weather seems to be sunny.

All clothing/shoes should be labelled with your child’s full name.
