Our school uniform can now only be ordered online at APC Tadcaster.

Delivery to school is FREE if you enter the discount code ACOMBFREEPOST.

The school uniform applies to all age groups, with a uniform providing a sense of identity, as well as reasonably priced, practical clothing.

It is expected that children will be neatly and cleanly dressed at all times and, unless exceptional circumstances apply, in school uniform.

We don’t allow branded leisure clothing or sports wear, as uniform or PE kit.

Children will be asked to remove these and may not be allowed to participate in PE lessons for repeat occurrences.

Sweatshirts, polo shirts, bags and water bottles are available from the school office.

  • Sandals and Crocs should not be worn.
  • Indoor shoes should be brought to school to help us keep the carpets in good condition and also to ensure children are able to access the grassed areas at playtime and lunchtime throughout the year.
  • Some children prefer to wear school shoes indoors and change into trainers for outdoor use.  This is fine too.

Please ensure that all your child’s clothes are named. We cannot stress enough how much time, and upset, can be saved if all personal items are clearly marked.


No jewellery must be worn in school other than small studs in pierced ears. This rule is enforced because bracelets, necklaces and dangling earrings can be a danger at playtime and during PE lessons. The school will accept no responsibility for accidents caused by the wearing of jewellery. Watches may be worn, but they are brought into school at the child’s own risk.
