Our school uniform can either be ordered new via our online supplier Mapac, or alternatively we hold pre-loved uniform which is available for a small donation. If you wish to enquire about pre-loved uniform, please contact the school at office@sheddingdean.co.uk 

All of our uniform can be purchased from local retailers with the exception of jumpers and cardigans with the school logo on them which can be ordered through Mapac.  Parents/Carers can choose whether they wish to buy a jumper or cardigan with the school logo, or whether they wish to purchase a plain green jumper or cardigan.  Please see the uniform essentials which every child needs below.

Lost Property

All personal property brought into school should be clearly marked (sewn-on/iron-on/indelible marked labels). Lost property should be reported to the class teacher but it is the owner's responsibility to ensure that clothing is clearly labeled. We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal property.

It is possible to mark almost everything with the owner's name. Please do! It is impossible to sort out ownership when clothing is unmarked.



With the exception of studs or sleepers for pierced ears, no other forms of jewellery or wristbands are permitted. We advise that children who have pierced ears must not wear their earrings on days when they have P.E., games or swimming since they will have to remove them and the school cannot be held responsible for their loss.

If a child has recently had their ears pierced (within 6 weeks) and is unable to remove them, they must be taped over to prevent injury. This is a West Sussex County Council ruling that applies to all schools. 



Children may wear watches, but the school cannot be held responsible if these are lost. No money is allowed in school.


Mobile Phones

We ask that mobile phones are not brought into school as a matter of course. However if your child needs their phone for after school they must hand it into the office for safe keeping until the end of the day.



Please ensure that your child has an appropriate haircut. Dyed hair and unusual shaving of heads is not appropriate for primary age children. For health and safety reasons we would prefer children with long hair to have it tied back. 

We would ask that parents regularly check their child’s hair for head lice which continue to be a problem in all schools.
