Our children are proud to wear school uniform as it gives them a sense of identity and pride in belonging to The Lea.  Our uniform supplier is Beat School Uniforms.  You can shop online or visit their store at 4 Station Road, Harpenden, AL5 4SE.  Pre-loved uniform may be bought through the PTA (contact the office for more information).

Children should wear school PE kit to school on the day/s they do PE or an after school sports club, which could be 2-3 days a week.  Your child should attend school in uniform as follows:
