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:


  • Grey or black trousers or shorts
  • White polo shirt
  • Burgundy school sweater or fleece (Nursery – Year 4), or black school sweater or fleece (for Years 5 & 6)
  • Black shoes or trainers


  • Grey or black skirt, or grey pinafore, or black or grey trousers
  • White polo shirt
  • Alternatively, red/burgundy gingham dress
  • Burgundy school sweater, cardigan or fleece (Nursery – Year 4), or black school sweater, cardigan or fleece (for Years 5 & 6)
  • White or black socks
  • Black shoes or trainers

Uniform can be purchased from Panache (Droylsden), http://www.panacheschoolwear.co.uk/ 


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,

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.
