Mildmay Primary School encourages the wearing of school uniform and it is hoped that all parents choosing to send their child to the school or nursery support this policy. In the interest of gender equality, all items and variations in uniform can be adopted by any child should they wish to wear them.
For sweatshirts, cardigans and polo-shirts our school logo/branded items are preferred and encouraged, however parents may source plain unbranded items in the correct uniform colours from high-street or supermarket outlets.
All school logo/branded items are available online from www.onestopschoolgear.com or can be purchased directly from:
‘One Stop School Gear’, Unit 1 Beehive Business Centre, Beehive Lane, Chelmsford, CM2 9TA.
In most year groups PE uniform will be worn to school on specified days for your child throughout the year (to avoid unnecessary delay to lessons, excessive lost property and to allow for regular washing) except where changing and dressing are a desired learning outcome for the children to tackle and master.
For reasons of safety and a child’s health & wellbeing, Mildmay Primary School also require your child to have;
- a suitable coat (especially in the winter months),
- an appropriate bag for carrying reading books and other supplies to and from school,
- a reusable and refillable water-bottle for personal use and
- that long hair be tied back for appropriate tasks, activities and timings through the day.
One pair of stud earrings can be worn to school, but your child must be able to remove and replace them for PE and other activities. No other jewellery should be brought or worn to school.
ALL ITEMS of uniform and/or equipment should be clearly named so that they can be returned to your child if they are lost.
