Thomlinson Academic Uniform

Thomlinson Junior School has an officially recognised school uniform that we ask parents and carers to uphold. A uniform helps build discipline and a sense of school cohesion, as well as helping to prevent instances of clothing-based jealousy and bullying.

Please ensure your child comes to school suitably dressed in sensible shoes that are safe and smart. Open toes, backless shoes and trainers are not normally acceptable footwear in class. Particularly in wet weather, children should also have a pair of ‘indoor shoes’ to avoid soiling the carpeted areas of the school where children often sit.

The Thomlinson Junior School Uniform comprises:

  • Royal Blue Sweatshirt, Sweater or Cardigan:
    Available embroidered with the Thomlinson crest from the School Shop at a very reasonable cost.
  • White or Navy Blue T-Shirt, Shirt, Blouse or Polo Shirt:
    Available embroidered with the Thomlinson crest from the School Shop at a very reasonable cost.
  • Navy Blue, Black or Grey School-type Trousers or Skirt:
    Similarly-coloured tracksuit bottoms are permissable, but must be of plain design with no stripes, patterns or logos. Girls may wear trousers if preferred. Jeans, denim trousers, leggings and other ‘fashion’ garments are not acceptable.
  • Summer Dresses:
    Lightweight, blue and white checked dresses may also be worn in Summer.

Thomlinson Games Uniform

Thomlinson Junior School PE Kit comprises:

  • Top:
    Purple T-Shirt and Purple Hoodie.
  • Bottom:
    Navy Blue Joggers and Navy Blue Shorts.
  • Footwear:
    Plimsoles or suitable Trainers are ideal for indoor games. Trainers are also required for outdoor games. Some students also wear studded boots for hockey and football.

Clothing from the School Shop

Officially approved Thomlinson Junior School Uniform and Games Uniform is available embroidered with the smart Thomlinson crest from the School Shop at a very reasonable cost. An embroidered school emblem suitable for sewing onto clothing, bags etc can also be purchased individually.

Local retailer, ‘Gladrags’ in King Street also stocks a comprehensive range of fully approved Thomlinson uniform featuring the school crest.


Safety and security considerations dictate that no jewellery may be worn by students in school.

The only exception is the wearing of single plain studs in pierced ears. However these must be removed or taped over during PE and Drama, and must be removed outright during swimming. The only exception to the removal rule is for freshly pierced ears that have not yet healed. In this case taping is acceptable during the first six weeks or so.

No other form of earring, no matter how plain, is allowed. Secure storage is provided for studs that have been removed. School staff are not permitted to remove or replace ear studs, so if the child is unable to remove them they must either be taped or removed by the parent/carer before the school day commences.

Following advice from the Cumbria Health and Safety Unit, no other face, tongue, nose or body piercings may be worn in school.

Other Valuables and Money

To avoid issues of jealousy, bullying and dishonesty, Children should not bring money or other valuables into school unless they are for a specific school-related purpose.

Valuable items and cash should be handed in for safe keeping. Children may not bring Pen Knives, Toy Guns, Electric and/or Radio Controlled Toys or any other unsuitable items into school.

Mobile Phones, Smart Phones, Tablets, Laptops, MP3 Players and other Digital devices may not be brought onto school premises unless by specific arrangement. If a Mobile Phone is deemed  ‘necessary’ by a parent or carer, it must be handed-in to the School Reception by the student on arrival and collected at the end of the day.

Whilst every effort is made to keep items held for safe keeping secure, the school can accept no liability for their damage or loss.
