Soho Parish Primary

School uniform


There is no school uniform at Soho Parish.  Children are asked to wear practical, appropriate Book week charactersclothes which are suitable for work and play.  Best dresses are not recommended as a creative school is a place for paint splashing and climbing (we do of course endeavour to cover clothes with overalls during messy work and play).

School bagsShoes should have adequate ankle support to prevent injury, so we do not allow shoes without backs (e.g. flip-flops), shoes with heels or wheeled footwear. 

For safety reasons jewellery (necklaces, bracelets, brooches, rings etc) is not allowed to be worn in school.  Stud earrings and watches are permitted.


Children bring their P.E. kit in a suitable bag.  It contains the following items, clearly labelled with the child’s name:

  • - shorts (or leggings / tracksuit bottoms)
  • - a t-shirt
  • - trainers or plimsolls (some P.E. is done barefoot) 



NB In Years 3 and 4, pupils attend weekly off-site swimming lesson at the YMCA Great Russell Street. These lessons currently take place on a Friday morning.  Class letters will advise about requirements for swimming kit.
