Alban Wood is proud of its identity and children are expected to wear the school uniform when attending school or participating in a school organised event outside normal school hours.
Articles of clothing have been chosen that are either readily available at local superstores/department stores or through the school uniform shop. Uniform order forms are available from Mapac.

Our policy for school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • Promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • Engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school
  • Is practical and smart
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Is regarded as suitable wear for school and is considered by parents as good value for money
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind

The school uniform is:

  • Red sweatshirt, fleece or cardigan
  • White/red polo shirt or white shirt
  • Black trousers, short or skirts
  • Black pinafore or red checked summer dress
  • Black, sensible shoes (no heels and not slip on)

Sweatshirts, fleeces and cardigans with the school logo are available to purchase from MAPAC , along with: PE T shirt and shorts, book bags, caps and drawstring kit bags. Other uniform items are widely available in local supermarkets and shops.

The PE kit is:

  • A red T shirt
  • Black shorts or jogging bottoms
  • Plimsolls or outdoor black trainers
  • Long sleeve track suits for winter

Please make sure that all children’s clothing is named.

Iron-on name tapes can be bought in most supermarkets.

Second Hand Uniform

We have second hand uniform available at school. This is overseen by our PTA where a second hand uniform stall will have uniform available after school at different points thorough out the year. The school will ask for a donation from parents who take uniform, but this is discretionary.
