School uniform garments are available from all major supermarkets. Uniform with the school logo is available from our stockist, Ann’s Schoolwear, based on Union Street, Bacup. They also offer an online ordering service:


We would very much appreciate it if you could please label all uniform with your child’s name.

Uniform Policy


  • Grey trousers
  • White polo shirt
  • Dark green sweatshirt
  • Sensible, flat, black shoes.


  • Grey skirt, pinafore or trousers
  • White shirt
  • Dark green sweatshirt / cardigan
  • Green / white checked dress in summer
  • Sensible, flat, black shoes (fashion shoes are not considered appropriate)

While this policy refers to male and female, it is in place with consideration to the equality act. Where a child may identify as male/female then pupils may wear their choice of uniform with St Anne’s colours as outlined below.

Similarly, where there is a pupil who requires support in purchasing school uniform, St Anne’s will provide this in communication with the parent/carer.


  • Pair of pumps or trainers / Black shorts / White T-shirt.
  • It is essential that each child has a PE kit for wearing during PE lessons.
  • In the juniors different classes go swimming throughout the year.  Your class teacher will let you know which days children will need swimming kits.


  • Waterproof coat (or waterproof jacket in warmer weather)
  • Comfortable tracksuit bottoms or leggings (not shorts)
  • Long-sleeved top
  • Wellington boots or old trainers
  • Appropriate hat for the weather /scarf and gloves (in colder weather)

To note, forest school sessions often entail mud, climbing and exploring so clothes for these sessions may return home dirty or marked.


One-piece costumes are required for the girls and suitable trunks for the boys – long swim shorts are not allowed by the pool staff! Each child also needs a towel. Long hair is expected to to be tied back and a swimming cap worn.  If a child is to be excused from PE or swimming, please send a note prior to the event.


Only very plain studs for pierced ears and a plain wristwatch please.  For safety reasons children will be asked to remove other jewellery. We would prefer children not to have their ears pierced during term time – for juniors, this means missing about six weeks of swimming.


Long should be tied up with a plain hair band.  It is at the Headteacher’s discretion whether a style or colour of hair is unacceptable.  Please be aware that if one child has an outrageous hairdo, then many others want the same thing.  Please don’t send your children to school with outrageous hairstyles – they do look great but cause problems when everyone wants one.
