School Uniform

We want our children to look smart when at school and feel proud to wear their uniform and to be part of the Ladysmith Federation community.

Our uniform policy is outlined below.   If a child is wearing a jumper, cardigan or fleece, we expect it to be in the school colour of burgundy. If desired, branded Ladysmith Federation jumpers and fleeces can be bought in Thomas Moore in Exeter but the rest of the uniform can be purchased from any high street store or supermarket.

Second hand uniform can be purchased from a PTFA led second hand uniform shop.  For details, please see the information below.
