Carlisle Infant School

Uniform Guidance

It is our school guidance that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school-organised events outside normal school hours. We ask children to take pride in their personal appearance. Children are at all times ambassadors for the school, and never more so than when larger groups are on school trips. The children should wear their uniform with pride, as it identifies them as pupils of Carlisle Infants School. We do monitor school uniforms for affordability. Good quality second-hand uniform is available to all parents and other support is also available to families dependent on need.

All children have equal access to wearing school uniform regardless of their culture, race, religion, gender, disability or ability. We ensure that our expectations are in line with other policies and allow for individual circumstances. Carlisle Infant School is committed to creating a positive climate that will enable everyone to work free from racial intimidation and harassment and to achieve their full potential.


Federation Uniform Guidance

Our new federation uniform will be in place from September and available from School Days in Whitton : Federation Uniform

We are looking forward to seeing all children proudly wearing this new federation uniform, but appreciate that this will take a period of time to settle in, with children still wearing their current CIS or HHJS uniform in September. Initially, we are expecting all reception and Y3 children to start the New Year in the new school uniform. We do have current second-hand uniform at both schools and this will be available through the summer term to support families. If any family needs support with this change to a new uniform, we would ask them to contact us through the school office. All children must wear: (Carlisle phasing over to Federated Uniform)
