Waterloo Primary Academy has a uniform which is worn by all children. We request your co-operation in making sure that your child comes to school in full uniform.

In September 2020 we launched our brand new look and our brand new uniform.  Our new uniform is modern, versatile and is able to be ‘mixed and matched’ to suit all budgets.   Our new uniform is available from two suppliers in Blackpool.  Details of our new uniform and new look for Waterloo can be found in the letter below:
