Uniform & PE Kit
Our school uniform is available to be purchased from Rawcliffe’s and the Uniform Shop either in store or online HERE
School dress, or uniform, identifies the student with the school. It aims and helps towards establishing acceptable common standards among our students. It is practical and compares favourably in price with alternative wear.
Recently our Governing Board approved the new Uniform Policy from 1 September 2022, which can be viewed below.
We have always enjoyed strong parental support for our policy, and we expect this to continue.
Navy blue V-necked jumpers with the Temple Moor motif and our school tie are available from:
617 Roundhay Road,
The School Uniform Shop (Jo Brands)
369-373 Harehills Lane,
- Grey trousers
- White shirt
- Navy blue V-necked jumper with school logo
- School tie
- Black leather shoes (NO logos or velcro)

Black leather shoes (NO logos or velcro)
PE kit is compulsory at Temple Moor for reasons of both safety and hygiene. We trust, therefore, that parents will support the school by encouraging their children to maintain high standards of sporting attire.
Students must bring and change into their kit every lesson. If they have an excuse note due to injury, then they must still change into their kit and officiate in a role that will not affect their injury. The only exception to this is when they are physically unable to change.
It is an expectation that a bobble is brought to tie up long hair.
Compulsory Items for all students
- PE – Black or blue shorts or jogging bottoms, as per student preference

All students require football boots and indoor trainers. Please note that only trainers with non-marking soles will be allowed to be worn indoors. All kit must be clearly named so that it can be identified if it is lost. All items of kit can be purchased at Rawcliffe’s HERE
In winter tracksuit bottoms are permitted. These must be either black, navy blue or grey. Jackets are not permitted. However, in cold weather it is recommended that one or more base layers (skins) are worn. The outer most layer must have the Temple Moor logo.
As a uniformed school we have clear guidelines as to what our expectations are. We do not allow:
- Denim clothing
- Knitwear, sweatshirts or hooded tops with, or without logos
- Glittery eye shadow or heavy eye liner
- Outdoor coats being worn in school
- Inappropriate nail length
Make-up worn should be no more than expected in a professional working environment.
Students’ names should be clearly labelled in each item of clothing and equipment.
Jewellery is not permitted to be worn by students (with the exception of a wrist watch and one stud in each ear). Students must remove earrings for their PE lessons.
Please note: Smart watches that are enabled to receive and send messages are not permitted to be worn by students.
Mobile Phones/Personal Devices
Mobile phones and other electronic equipment are not allowed in school. The school policy is to confiscate mobile phones if they are seen and returned to the student at the end of that day. Repeated incidents would warrant confiscation and collection by parents at the earliest opportunity. If a student is seen with a mobile phone at the end of the school day whilst on the school premises, they will be issued with a detention to be sat the following day.
Bicycles left at school are at your own risk and need to be securely locked in the cycle storage area. This area is unsupervised so please ensure that the lock is robust.
School Uniform Exchange
There is lots of great quality second hand school uniform in Leeds – and much of it is going to waste.
Clothing production has a big carbon impact. We can reduce our environmental footprint by sharing uniform so that it’s worn for longer and we cut demand for new. School uniform is unaffordable for some families. Sharing means we can save money and help others do the same.
The Leeds School Uniform Exchange was launched in the Summer of 2019 and confirmed that there is a MOUNTAIN of good quality school uniform in wardrobes, cupboards and drawers across the city. As well as stacks of unnamed lost property in schools.
We have decided to launch our own school uniform exchange to pass on good quality, second hand school uniform to reduce the amount of clothes going to landfill and help our families along the way.
How can you help?
We are taking donations of the following items.
- Logoed Items (PE kit, jumper, Summer blue polo shirt and ties)
- Football Boots
Things to think about
Please only donate good quality second hand items. Think ‘would you be happy for your own child to wear it.’
Main Reception or students can drop items off at student services. Items that are donated will be washed and names blocked out then passed onto families who can use them.
How can I request items from the Uniform Exchange?
The Uniform Exchange is available to all parents/carers who can request items by emailing Mrs Pickering at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also set up pop up shops at events throughout the school year.
All second hand items will be free.
