Roach Vale Primary School

Roach Vale, Colchester, Essex CO4 3YN

01206 861324



In considering the cost of our school uniform, we have kept the use of items with logos to a minimum.  Please do not feel the need to provide a school jumper or cardigan with a logo.  Plain jumpers, available at supermarkets or charity shops are equally as good.   

The company that do supply our logo items give the highest priority to cost and value for money (including the quality and durability of the garments). 

We do have a good supply of second-hand uniforms available for parents to acquire.

Please make contact with your child’s teacher, the Headteacher or the office if you would like to view our second-hand uniform rails.   



Roach Vale Uniform can be ordered from either School Trends or My Clothing.  Please click on one of the
