As a school we have a duty to make sure that our uniform is affordable, in line with statutory guidance from the Department for Education on the cost of school uniform. We try to ensure that uniform is available at a reasonable cost and that it provides the best value for our parents and carers.
We are recognising that due to current pressures on our finances with the cost of living crisis and fuel increases, that uniform costs can become difficult for our parents. If we recycle our pre-loved uniform then we can help save our planet.
We have introduced a Pre-Loved collection box in the foyer for school sweatshirts and cardigans. You can come and collect items without having to speak to the office. There is also a drop box so you can donate items of uniform. At the moment the drop box is for school sweatshirts and cardigans only. If you have any other items you wish to donate please speak to the school office.
We also have a wish box where you can request further items that we may be able to help with. There are request slips that can be completed and popped into the request box. All we will need on the request form is the name and the class of the child, the item that we may be able to help with and the size. We can then pass these directly to your child to take home.
Telford Crisis Winter Coat and Shoes Support
We have access to the Telford Winter Coat and Shoe Support scheme. If you are struggling with either of these items, we can make an application on your behalf.
In this instance you will need to speak to the office or if you prefer, you could email the school office for further support.
Can we also remind you that we have a lost property box situated at the back of the school hall. Many items get left here and we are unable to locate their owner as the items have not been labelled. If you need to check lost property please speak to your child’s class teacher.
It is the expectation that children attending Meadows Primary School and Nursery should, without variation, wear the school uniform detailed below.
A navy sweatshirt and a pale blue polo shirt with/without the school logo.
Plain grey trousers or shorts in the summer (not black).
Grey or black socks.
Black school shoes – no canvas type shoes, black trainers or other coloured trainers.
A navy sweatshirt or cardigan and a pale blue polo shirt with/without the school logo.
Plain grey skirt or pinafore – trousers optional, no leggings.
Grey or black tights or socks.
Black school shoes – Shoes/boots with heels are not suitable for children running around on the playground.
A blue gingham dress may be worn in the summer with ankle or knee high socks.
School shoes must still be worn in the summer.
Sandals should not be worn due to Health and Safety reasons.
PE white t-shirt.
Plain, black, warm jogging trousers/tracksuit (for outdoor PE).
School logo sweatshirt or plain sweatshirt. Please note children will need some form of sweatshirt as coats are not suitable for outdoor PE.
Trainers, no pumps required for outdoor PE.
Children will not be able to participate in PE without the correct PE kit. In accordance with Health and Safety Regulations, we have requested that children do not wear earrings or any jewellery for PE lessons.
If your child is unable to remove their earrings themselves at school, then please can you ensure that they are not worn to school on the days that they have PE.
If your child has pierced ears, then please supply micro-pore tape for them to keep in their bag, so that they can cover their earrings during PE. This is to help avoid any accidents occurring which could cause considerable discomfort to your child and we would ask for your co-operation in this matter.
For safety and security reasons no jewellery should be worn except for small stud earrings.
Watches can be worn but no electronic watches.
Hairstyles - no strongly coloured hair/shaved hair/ razor markings. All long hair must be tried back at all times especially during PE lessons.
Hair accessories must be minimal in design/number and also in the school colours of blue, black, grey or white.
No nail varnish allowed.
Please name all items of children‘s clothing so that we can identify lost items of uniform quickly. We do keep lost property for a reasonable period of time, but is often difficult to identify items that are not labelled. If your child has lost something then please check in their classroom first, then check in the lost property box.
Personal belongings including mobile phones are not to be brought into school. In exceptional circumstances any valuable belongings brought to school should be given to a member of staff for safe keeping.
