At Whitehouse Common Primary school, we understand the benefits of belonging to the ‘Whitehouse Common Family’. As part of this collective responsibility, all pupils are expected to wear our school uniform in full to school every day and are encouraged to take pride in their appearance, reminding them that, whilst wearing school uniform, they are ambassadors for our school.
We are committed to ensuring that our school uniform is affordable and accessible to all pupils and does not place an unreasonable financial burden on parents and, as such, most items of non-logo school uniform can be purchased from high street stores e.g. Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s Marks & Spencer etc.
Should you wish to purchase uniform with our logo, these can be purchased from:
To support families, the PTA regularly has some ‘good as new’ uniform sales, which are advertised through newsletters, posters around school or their Facebook page.
Government or local charity funding towards the cost of uniform may also be available. Please contact the school office for further information.

School policy is that children do not wear jewellery to school, although watches are permitted. Fitness trackers (non-cellular and of minimal value) may be worn for non-contact activities, as deemed appropriate by the teacher. Children should not be wearing other smart watches to school. If your child has pierced ears, then we request that they only wear small studs. Please ensure that these are removed before coming to school on days when your child has PE or Games.
It is important that all items of clothing, footwear and school bags are labelled clearly with the child’s name.
