School uniform

Gorseland Primary School has a clear uniform policy and all children are required to adhere to it.

We aim to make it as smart and comfortable as possible, whilst keeping it affordable for parents and carers.

All plain items of our uniform are available at most supermarkets and clothing stores. If you wish to have an embroidered top then this can be purchased from PMG Schoolwear here.

Swimming Kit

Currently, children in Year 5 and some SSU classes will need a separate swimming kit that includes a one piece swimming costume or trunks, a swimming hat and a towel.

Items of school uniform with the Gorseland logo are available to purchase from PMG Schoolwear in Ipswich or online through their website.

Nearly New Uniform

From time to time, we have nearly new uniform that parents have donated to the school which is available to parents and carers.

Clothing with the school logo costs £1 per item and other items are free of charge with a maximum of 3 of each item.

Please ensure that all items of uniform, outer clothing and other items brought into school (bags, book bottles, etc) are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
