At Great Waltham we have adopted a school uniform as we firmly believe that it fosters a feeling of belonging and encourages children to take a pride in their school and we are very grateful to parents for supporting the wearing of uniform. All logoed uniform is available from School Wear Plus – Chelmsford. Follow the link below:

We endeavour to review the cost of our uniforms on a regular basis. The school tracksuit is worn twice-weekly for PE lessons and sporting events this means that our parents will buy less school uniform. All logo’d uniform can be brought at school or via our pre-loved pop-up shops which are available each half-term and run by our Friends of Great Waltham School.

Our school uniform is as listed below.

Please ensure every item of school uniform is named so that it can be returned if misplaced.  Lost property is only held for a short period of time.

We recommend stick in name labels as they can be used to label many different items e.g. clothing, shoes, lunch boxes & drinks bottles. If you order labels from the 'Stickins' website you can help to raise money for our school, simply order via the following link using school code 8416:
