Uniform shop

We have a range of second hand uniform in school which is available for all families. This is led by the PTA and any donations go to our school fund. We stock a range of all aspects of our uniform including: 

  • jumpers and cardigans
  • trousers, skirts and shorts
  • shoes
  • coats 

Lots of our families use the shop and we are always appreciative of any uniform donations.  Our uniform shop is open at regular parent events but is stored in school – if you need for school clothing at any point, please speak to the school office. 

All of our uniform is available to buy from our stockist Get Branded, who are based at Clifton Moor, York.

New School Logo September 2023

The change in logo will be implemented from September 2023.  There will be a change in signage, letterhead and uniform. We would like to reassure parents that this will be a gradual change and we understand that there will be a period of transition between old and new uniform. From September, all new uniform bought will need to have the updated logo. If your child does not need a new book bag, jumper or cardigan, they can continue to wear the current uniform until new is required. There is no requirement to have a PE t-shirt or polo shirt with a logo. The new uniform will be available to buy from Get Branded on Monday 10th July.

We have used the children’s designs featuring trees, hands and leaves to inspire his proposal. This is his statement:

The uplifting image of the raised child’s hand represents all of the school values. It demonstrates a keen child inspiring others to learn and engage; it is also the hand of a caring and nurturing community; and, combined with the leaves, shows personal growth. The colours of the leaves, echo the colours of the school values that are featured throughout the school building and the tree image is particularly suited to Rufforth with its extensive tree-lined school grounds and broad range of activities. The different leaves also represent diversity in the school community: showing that, though the children are all different, they are still the leaves of one tree. The radiant scattering of the leaves by the hand is a visual depiction of the firing of a child’s imagination through learning.”
