At Upland we believe that uniform is an important part of being a member of the school community and we place a great deal of emphasis upon how smartly dressed our pupils are. Upland is a school to be proud of and we reflect this in the appearance of all pupils.
Our online supplier is My Clothing and can be ordered from: https://myclothing.com/
We do hold a limited amount of stock in school so please do check with the school office what we uniform we have available before ordering online.
Our school uniform is:
- Navy sweatshirt or cardigan with Upland school logo
- White school shirt or polo shirt (with or without the school emblem)
- Grey/Navy skirt or trousers or pinafore dress (in the summer short grey trousers or a blue gingham dress may be worn).
- White/Navy socks or tights (socks should be either ankle or knee length only).
- Children should wear sensible plain black shoes, flat or with a 1” heel, no flip-flops, sandals, trainers, crocs, sling backs or similar styles.

PE kit should be kept in a bag on the child’s peg in the cloakroom. It should be brought to school on the first day of each half term and taken home on the last day. Long hair must be tied back for PE, so it is a good idea for your child to have a hair band/scrunchy in their PE bag. Children must wear socks for PE (except gymnastics). If your child wears tights to school they need to have a spare pair of socks in their kit bags. Please ensure that all items are clearly marked with your child’s name. If your child loses an item of clothing, please see the school office staff who will direct you to lost property. Parents may purchase uniform items from the school office.
We recommend that pupils with long hair have it tied back. No jewellery should be worn, although children with pierced ears may wear small studs. The studs must be covered for PE lessons. It is the responsibility of parents and carers to ensure that the earrings, in particular the posts at the back, are adequately covered.
If you are planning on having your child’s ears pierced we ask that you do it at the beginning of the summer holidays so that they have time to heal before returning in September.
