Uniform

At Moorlands we have high expectations for all our children and are proud of our school uniform and logo.  Wearing the full school uniform is one obvious symbol that children share these expectations, so all children must wear it.

Please note that our uniform will be changing from September 2020.  From that date, parents can choose whether to send their children to school wearing the current burgundy uniform, or the new green one.  A letter sent to parents on 9th July explains the details of how this will work.  Parents should note that, if you are purchasing new uniform, only the new green colours will be available (from Marks and Spencer).  However, second-hand uniform will continue to be sold by the PTA and you can recycle burgundy AND green uniform through them.

The Marks and Spencer website is almost up-to-date for Moorlands, although some pictures are not yet there. Any item NOT shown on the M&S website may be bought from any supplier.  The logo is only needed on the items shown in bold.  This helps parents to shop around for the best value.

Uniform List:

All items on the uniform list should be school wear – not fashion items – and clearly named.

Burgundy sweatshirt/fleece/cardigan OR green jumper/ cardigan

Burgundy polo top OR white polo top (for infants) or shirt (for juniors) – note that we will not be introducing ties until January 2021 at the earliest, but junior children opting for the green uniform should nevertheless wear a shirt.

Black/grey trousers/skirt/pinafore/knee length shorts

Red and white check summer dresses OR green and white check summer dresses

Black/grey/white socks or tights (leggings may be worn under skirts/dresses for reasons of modesty but MUST be shorter than the dress or skirt)

Bags: Every child will require a school bag/ruck sack no larger than h=43cm x w=33cm x d =38cm We recommend a draw string PE bag.  Children will also need a book bag.  Both the book bag and the PE bag can be bought from the Marks and Spencer website, but alternatives are also acceptable.  Please note, though, that any branding/advertising on bags should be age appropriate, eg. NOT advertising games or films for ages above 11 for the Junior School, or 7 for the Infant School.
