School Uniform

It is an expectation that every pupil will wear our school uniform and cooperation from our parents/carers is appreciated. Our school uniform provides pupils with a sense of belonging, community and pride in our school.

It is also helpful in generating corporate responsibilities and is a relatively inexpensive and practical outfit. Sending your child to school in uniform sets a standard in appearance of which parents/carers, pupils and Woodeaton can be proud.

The Nest, Key Stages 3 and 4 wear the following items:

  • Navy blue sweatshirt/hoodie with school badge – available from the school office priced at £12.50/£17.50

Personal belongings


All personal belongings should be clearly marked with the owner’s name. Any money should be handed into the school office upon arrival. Many of our pupils have a considerable journey into school in their taxis and as such valuable items such as computer games, mobile phones, e-readers, music players and tablets/laptops can be brought into school, with permission from parents/carers, on the condition that all valuables are handed in to staff on arrival. These items will then be given back to pupils at the end of the school day. Parents/carers and pupils should note that our school cannot accept liability for the loss or damage to personal property if it is not handed in.

Mobile phones:


All mobile phones should be handed to staff upon arrival and will be given back to pupils at the end of the school day.
