Uniform

We expect that all our children will wear school uniform. Uniform is important because it gives the children a sense of belonging and raises self-esteem. We work with you to ensure all our children maintain a smart appearance.

The children are positively encouraged and rewarded for taking care of their possessions and for remembering to bring the right items to school on the right day.

For example, grey trousers, grey skirts, red checked dresses, white shirts, white blouses, black PE shorts, etc can be purchased according to parental preference. White polo shirts (which will continue to be worn by Early Years and Key Stage 1) should have the school logo if possible.

Mapac School Uniform

Please note: for reasons of safety:-

  • Long hair must be tied back and only a small red hair accessory is permissible.
  • Hard hair bands should not be worn for PE
  • Hair should be kept neat in conventional styles
  • Gel, braids and beads must not be worn (unless specifically allowed E.g. on a charity fundraising day). Parents may be contacted to collect their child to remove hair gel etc, if necessary.
  • Nail varnish and other fashion accessories are not allowed
  • Watches should be removed for PE
  • Shoes must be closed toe at all times and no heels – including on fundraising, non uniform days
  • Earrings are not permitted, except for children with pierced ears, who may wear only simple studs and ensure that they take them out for all physical education activities.

Please provide your child with a small box and teach them how to remove their own earrings. (Staff cannot accept responsibility for removing or replacing earrings or for their loss). In the initial 6 week period when earrings cannot be removed, or if your child cannot managed to remove them themselves, children must provide tape / Elastoplast to cover their studs, for safety during PE and games.

If parents / carers have difficultly providing our school uniform, please let us know, we will try to help. Please contact the School Office for further information. Thank you.
