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)
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. Children who are wearing jewellery will not be allowed to participate in PE lessons. Jewellery and clothing worn as part of religious beliefs also need to meet the standards and if not, will be discussed with families. Pupils may be able to take part in PE wearing small ear studs, which need to be taped before school / by the child (at the discretion of the Sports Coach or Teacher).
Watches may be worn.
The wearing of nail varnish is not encouraged.

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.
