Our school uniform is compulsory. All children should come to school wearing:

All our uniform can be purchased from Excel Embroidery in Ilfracombe (next to Lidl).
We work hard to ensure we give parents as much information as possible. To help us keep you up to date, we use the School Gateway app. We are a cashless school so this app allows you to pay for trips and school dinners and also enables the school to send updates via message alerts. If you already have a child in the school, their sibling will automatically be added once they are admitted in September. If you a new parent to the school, more information will follow in September about the app and how it can be set up once the children are admitted.
Free School Meals
School dinners will need to be paid for unless you have registered for free school meals. If you think your child is entitled to free school meals please register via FREE SCHOOL MEALS | IJS (ilfracombe-jun.devon.sch.uk)
What to bring?
Your child will be provided with everything they need on the first day. They will receive a home-learning pack with a Reading Journal. For use in the classroom, they will be provided with their own pencil case including all of the resources/ equipment required.
