Where to purchase

Branded sweatshirts, fleeces, book bags and school ties are available to purchase from the school office. All non-branded items of main uniform and PE kit can also be brought more widely from high-street retailers and supermarkets but should be of a smart style and in keeping with our expectations.


Pre-owned uniform

We are proud to be able to offer a pre-owned uniform service at Rufford to help parents and carers with the cost of uniform, whilst at the same time reducing waste. In order to be able to provide this service, any donations of outgrown uniform items in good condition are very much appreciated. Donations should be laundered and name labels removed please.


Parents requiring pre-owned uniform or wishing to donate uniform should contact school reception. Arrangements will then be made to collect or drop off.


Additional support


Where there are difficulties with parents/carers being able to purchase school uniform, please contact school reception, who will be able to discuss pre-owned options that are available. If this is not a suitable option, on an individual basis there may be the option for the school to purchase certain uniform items.


Further information


If you need any further information on our uniform expectations please contact Mrs Bolton or Ms Laight who can answer questions about the policy and respond to any request

The aims of our approach and expectations for our school communities can all be found in the Trust’s Uniform Policy
