School Clothing

All pupils at Ely St John's wear the school's uniform. This is primarily emerald and grey.

Orders can be placed and paid for online using the School Gateway, or in person by using a paper copy of our order form, downloadable from the website or from the school entrance hall.  Just hand it in to the office with payment by cash or cheque.  All sizes of uniform are kept in stock in school so orders are usually fulfilled within a couple of days at the latest.

The Friends' of Ely St Johns hold Second Hand Uniform sales periodically throughout the year and notification of these are sent out via our Schoolcomms system. If you would like to see if items are available to purchase in between these sales, please contact the school office.



  • Our emerald green school sweatshirts and cardigans are available to order from the school office.

  • The sweatshirts are to be worn with white shirts or white polo shirts and grey or black trousers, shorts, skirts or pinafore dresses.

  • An old shirt or apron is needed for art activities.


  • Children may wear sandals with closed toes and white or dark plain socks.

  • In summer girls can wear green and white striped or checked dresses. This should be worn with dark shoes and black, grey, brown or dark green tights or socks.


  • The school is on an exposed site so coats should be brought into school as we make the most of being able to go outside in all weathers!

  • Make sure your child brings a coat to school and has raincoats and wellies available if wet or snowy.

PE Kit
School PE kit consists of green shorts, yellow t-shirt and plimsolls. Items of kit are available from the school office along with book bags.
  • In summer, children need suitable shorts, T-shirts and plimsolls for outdoor activities.

  • In the winter tracksuits are allowed and trainers for outdoors.

  • Your children should come to school wearing their PE kits on PE days rather than changing clothes during the day

  • Long hair must be tied back.

  • For swimming, one piece swimming costumes rather than bikinis for girls and trunks rather than long shorts for boys. Goggles are allowed.

Please remember: Label all items of clothing
High heeled or backless shoes or clothing attachments which could cause damage to other children are not appropriate. No make-up should be worn for school. Children with pierced ears should wear studs for school. For safety reasons, no other earrings or jewellery should be worn. We do not allow earrings for PE. If teachers consider it dangerous to do a particular PE activity with earrings in, your child will have to take them out or sit out the activity. Alternatively we would strongly advise you to send your child to school without earrings on regular PE days.
