Uniform

Coopers Edge School is committed to creating a positive learning environment that will enable everyone to work free from any type of intimidation and harassment and to achieve their full potential. 

All children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos and which is cost effective. In line with the government’s Cost of School Uniforms Statutory Guidance (Nov 2021), we have ensured our uniform is affordable by restricting the requirement for items bearing the school logo.

All clothing should be clearly labelled with the child’s name as the school cannot accept responsibility for any lost items.

Equality and Diversity

All children have equal access to wearing school uniform regardless of their culture, race, religion, gender, disability or ability. We ensure that the set uniform respects other policies such as the Equalities Act and the Human Rights Act and allows for individual sets of circumstances of all groups and individuals.

Second Hand Uniform

At regular intervals throughout the year, sessions are arranged where parents can obtain clean and washed second hand uniform from the school.

Support with the Cost of Uniform

For families on low incomes, applications for a uniform grant will be considered. Please request support by contacting the school office by emailing admin@coopersedge.gloucs.sch.uk or in person.   

Our Uniform is as follows:

  • Grey tailored trousers/shorts/skirt

  • White/grey socks or black tights
  • Black sensible shoes
  • In the summer, a green or yellow stiped or checked dress

Any additional attire due to religious beliefs ot special needs should reflect the school's expected standards and colour scheme.
