Our Mendip Green Uniform
We are very proud of our school uniform and believe that it is important for children to have a level playing field during the school day and not feel any pressures to wear the latest fashion or expensive brand of trainer. We deliberately make our uniform very accessible – it can be purchased cheaply from local supermarkets and, although logoed items are available through our website, these are not a requirement.
Children should wear the following uniform:
jumpers and cardigans: All jumpers, fleeces and cardigans must be red. These DO NOT have to have the Mendip Green logo on them. Year 6 children may wear their Mendip Green Leavers' hoodie on the play ground or during P.E lessons but this does not replace a waterproof coat on the playground or a jumper/cardigan in the classroom.
tops: children should wear a white or red polo shirt. These DO NOT have to have the Mendip Green logo on them.
trousers, shorts, skirts and dresses: All children should wear tailored trousers, shorts, skirts or pinafore dresses which are black or grey in colour. Leggings, jeggings and denim (including black jeggings or skinny jeans) are not permitted, even if purchased from the school uniform section of a shop. Skirts must be of an appropriate length for active play. In the summer months, children may wish to wear white and red checked summer dresses.
footwear: All shoes and boots must be black and ‘polishable’. Trainers (unless on their PE day) and ‘Ugg’ style boots are not permitted. Open-toed and backless sandals are not permitted for health and safety reasons.
P.E kits: Children must have a full PE kit in school to change into for PE lessons. This must include trainers. PE kits must be in school colours (with the exception of trainers). Children will need a plain white or red t-shirt and dark shorts or jogging bottoms in colder weather. Due to health and safety and hygiene, children will not be allowed to wear their day-to-day school uniform for PE. We strongly recommend against sending expensive branded trainers as part of school PE kits.
coats: All children must wear a waterproof coat for outdoor play during wet weather. If children do not have a coat in school, they will be kept inside so that they are not sat in damp clothes for the rest of the day.
hair accessories: All hair longer than shoulder length should be tied up. Hair accessories should be practical, in school colours and of a sensible size.
jewellery: Children may wear a wrist watch (no smart watches please). Children with pierced ears can wear plain stud earrings. For health and safety reasons, all jewellery will need to be removed for PE. If it is not possible to remove earrings, they should be taped over. No other jewellery is permitted, including charity bands and friendship bracelets.
socks and tights: Tights should be in school colours (grey, black or red). However, socks are your chance to make your mark... any colour... any design...
