The uniform provides a unity for students, and a symbol that they belong to the CGB community. Students should wear their uniform with pride, both inside and outside the school grounds. In this respect, as in other respect, older students have the duty to provide a good role model for the younger ones.
Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
Full school tracksuit with polo shirt, socks and white or dark-coloured trainers. Velcro fastened shoes or trainers are an excellent idea at this age, as children often remove their shoes to protect the carpets in the classrooms.
For PE: tracksuit with or without shorts. A CGB cap is required.

It is recommended that students have wet weather clothing in school (boots are important for FS & KS1 students). This is especially important for wet departures.
