Uniform

At Monkwood Primary School we believe that our children should be able to wear uniform that is affordable. Whilst branded jumpers and polo shirts are available, these are not compulsory and parents/carers are free to purchase uniform from any suitable retailer.

We have a school uniform which all children should wear. It consists of:

  • Navy sweatshirt, hoody or cardigan (school logo is optional)
  • White or navy polo shirt (school logo is optional)
  • Smart dark-coloured (navy or grey) trousers or skirt
  • Plain dark-coloured (navy or grey) tights
  • Appropriate shoes or trainers (not flip-flop or heels)

PE Kit

For reasons of basic health and hygiene it is important that all children have a change of clothes and footwear for PE and games.

This should be:

  • Plain white t-shirt
  • Black or navy PE style shorts
  • A plain black or navy tracksuit is essential for outdoor games lessons which take place at ALL times during the school year
  • Indoor shoes (trainers or pumps)

Valuables and Jewellery

Valuables should not be brought to school. The wearing of jewellery is discouraged in school, especially pierced earrings. Earrings can lead to serious accidents. If they are worn in school they MUST be removed before any PE activities including swimming.

Watches may be worn.

The wearing of nail varnish is not encouraged.

Uniform Bank Colour logo

At a time when a lot of families are tightening their belts, we’re aware that many could benefit from a little extra support when it comes to buying school uniforms and other essentials – such as coats and PE kits – that children need for school. That’s why we’ve created a Trust-wide Uniform Bank of good quality, new and used items – providing a sustainable way to recycle and repurpose school uniforms.
