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 changed in September 2020.  A letter sent to parentson 9th July explained the details.  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 up-to-date for Moorlands. 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. 

We ask that children to come to school dressed in the appropriate clothes as listed below on days that they have PE or outdoor learning.

*Green and white uniform will be compulsory in Reception, Year 1, Year 3 and Year 4 only. Children in Year 2, Year 5 and Year 6 may choose to wear green or burgundy uniform. The PTA has second-hand uniform available and regularly holds second-hand sales. 

** Long trousers should be worn for outdoor learning. On a hot day, children can wear shorts/skirt for school but must bring long trousers to change into for the outdoor learning session. 

Because of the ongoing COVID situation, no neck ties should be worn by Junior children until further notice for H&S reasons; we will continue to review this as we get further guidance. 

Other 

On all days please ensure your child is equipped for the weather with a sun hat, sun cream or coat as needed. We will be outside in all weathers so we are very grateful to the PTA and in particular, parent Mr Wyatt, who have created our wonderful welly boot racks – so please do bring in named wellies that can be kept in school! We ask that children have in school an art/craft apron or shirt 

Bags: Every child will require a school bag/ruck sack no larger than approximately h=40cm x w=30cm x d =30cm  

Children will also need a book bag. A book bag and the PE bag can be bought from the Marks and Spencer website, but alternatives are also acceptable.  

Please note that any branding/advertising on bags, coats or hats should be age appropriate, eg. NOT advertising games or films for ages above 11 for the Junior School, or 7 for the Infant School.
