The school has a clear school uniform and dress code which should be followed for all pupils from Reception to Year 6. There is also second hand uniform available through the PTA. If you contact the school office or the PTA directly they may be able to source the correct uniform for you.

Our expectations: uniform and dress code

  • Green Mersham logo jumper or cardigan
  • White polo shirt or white shirt (school badge/ logo optional)
  • Grey trousers, grey shorts, grey skirt or grey pinafore dress
  • Black or grey tights; black or grey socks
  • Black school shoes – not trainers
  • Small earring studs – no hoops or large earrings
  • Discreet headbands or hair ties – no large bows, flowers or hair decorations (they will be asked to remove these)
  • We ask that children do not have extreme hairstyles, such as tramlines or partial shaving, and that hair is kept tidy.

In the summer, so that they are able to keep cool, your child may choose to:

  • Wear a green checked summer dress
  • Wear grey shorts
  • No sandals in school

For PE and Games:

  • Black shorts or tracksuit bottoms
  • School PE T shirt in their house colour (the old green Mersham T Shirt is also acceptable
  • Trainers or plimsolls
  • A fleece or jumper for colder weather
  • Gymnastics and dance are normally performed in bare feet in the hall unless there are medical reasons.

We ask that you ensure your child comes to school every day wearing the correct school uniform.

Why is it important to wear the correct school uniform?

At Mersham Primary School we believe:

  • It builds a sense of belonging and pride in our school.
  • It reinforces our responsibility to look after our own clothes and belongings and to be appropriately prepared for lessons and learning.
  • It is also helps to ease behavioural issues or upset which may occur as a result of “competition” over the latest brands or high street names – no time wasted deciding what to wear each day to keep up with peer pressure.
  • It supports a positive attitude towards learning and school readiness.

We are proud of our school community and the way our children enjoy expressing and celebrating their individuality. We therefore ensure that throughout the school year children get opportunities to wear their own clothes at events such as international day, themed weeks or during non-uniform days.

 

 Parents wishing their children to wear alternative clothing must apply in writing to the Headteacher.
