Moorside Primary Academy

Uniform Policy

Our uniform is something we are very proud of. It gives the children a sense of identity and a feeling of belonging to the Moorside community. We have high expectations in all things, and our uniform is one of them.  We expect that all of our pupils will wear our school uniform when in school, as listed below:

Boys

  • Grey or black trousers or shorts
  • Logoed/plain white polo shirt
  • Logoed/plain Burgundy school sweater or fleece (Nursery - Year 4), or logoed/plain black school sweater or fleece (for Years 5 & 6)
  • Only black shoes or full black trainers (black laces and no stripes or other patterns e.g. Nike tick/Adidas stripe would need to be fully black)

Girls

  • Grey or black skirt, or grey pinafore, or black or grey trousers
  • Logoed/plain White polo shirt
  • Alternatively,  red/burgundy gingham dress
  • Logoed/plain Burgundy school sweater, cardigan or fleece (Nursery - Year 4), or logoed/plain black school sweater, cardigan or fleece (for Years 5 & 6)
  • White or black socks
  • Only black shoes or full black trainers (black laces and no stripes or other patterns e.g. Nike tick/Adidas stripe would need to be fully black)

PE Kits

In order to ensure the health and safety of our pupils, all children are expected to bring in a full school P.E. Kit

  • White, black, grey or navy polo shirt/t-shirt,
  • White, black, grey or navy shorts/joggers
  • Black pumps or trainers

 

Uniform can be purchased from Panache (Droylsden), Tesco online or MCS (Ashton-under-Lyne).

In addition to wearing school uniform, we also expect the following standards from our pupils in relation to their presentation and dress:

  • All uniform, and equipment, should be clearly marked or labelled with your child’s name;
  • Hair that is longer than shoulder length should be tied back with a plain coloured bobble or headband (no large bows, elaborate headbands, or fascinators, etc);
  • Short hair should be shaved no lower than a guard level 2;
  • Extreme and shaved patterned hair (e.g., tags) are not allowed in school;
  • Extreme hair colourings (e.g., red, green, blue, pink, orange and so on) are not permitted;
  • No nail varnish, false nails or tattoos (temporary or permanent) permitted;
  • No jewellery to be worn in school (an exception is earring studs)
  • No Smart watches (including Apple)

 

 

 

Parents will be reminded of our uniform expectations if children are sent to our school not conforming to the policy above. If this is persistent, or extreme (for example, pupils with coloured or tagged hair), children will be sent home for parents to make the necessary adjustments.

We appreciate your support for our policy and for sharing our high uniform code expectations for all pupils.
