Uniform & Equipment

Saltash Community School has a distinctive school uniform. We ask for parents’ support in ensuring that all students in Years 7-11 wear the correct uniform. There is no uniform in the Sixth Form, but we insist that senior students are dressed appropriately for the activities of the school day. All items of school clothing must be clearly named.

We expect our students to come to school dressed in our school uniform, every day. Wearing a uniform provides a level of professionalism; it brings us together as a community and enhances a sense of belonging. We want our students to be proud of being in TEAM Saltash and their uniform demonstrates this.

School uniform

  • Black blazer embroidered with school logo.  
  • Standard blue school shirt (short or long sleeved).
  • Tailored black school full length trousers/shorts or knee-length drop waist pleated skirt (if students choose to wear a skirt - it must be drop waist, pleated - pencil skirts are not permitted). Jeans/leggings are not permitted.
  • Standard (polishable) flat heeled all black leather style shoes, with covered heels and toes. Canvas shoes are not permitted. Shoes must be completely black – without coloured ticks/logos/tags.

Pre-loved uniform

We recognise that the current financial pressures on families can be hard and want to do what we can as a school to help support our families. We expect to be able to distribute all parts of our uniform (from blazers to PE kits; from shirts to football boots). Items will be free of charge.

Please check the school website for details of opening times.

Alternatively, If you have a specific request for uniform please email:


Outdoor clothing should be sensible and smart. Coats and hats should not carry any offensive or inappropriate logos. The only jewellery allowed in school is a watch and one simple pair of small studs or sleepers in ear lobes.

Exaggerated hairstyles or an unnatural hair colour are not acceptable, and neither are false nails or nail polish.


Maintaining high expectations

If children do not attend in the correct uniform, they will be issued with a letter giving 7 days to correct the uniform infringement. After those 7 days, they will be expected to wear items issued by the school on that day. If a child refuses to wear these items, this will be dealt with in line with our behaviour policy for non-compliance.


To assist students in their learning the following items are necessary: pens, pencils, ruler, eraser, pencil sharpener, scissors, glue stick, sellotape, protractor, compass, scientific calculator and colouring pencils.

We appreciate that for some families, the cost of uniform and equipment can be expensive. We are always willing to subsidise the cost of these essentials for your child. If you would like financial assistance with the above, please contact Dani King by emailing or your child’s Head of Year.

All items are available secondhand, please contact the school for more information.
