We are all proud to be part of the West Meadows community and love to be recognised and noticed by the wider community for our great achievements. Our children are the face of the school and by wearing the correct school uniform they show everyone how proud we are to represent West Meadows Primary School.
Why wear a school uniform:
- It promotes school sprit
- It builds unity among students
- It makes it easy to identify students
- It helps home / school transition
- It saves money
- It improves focus on education
- It is quick to get ready
Each day children should wear:
- Grey skirt, tunic or trousers (no tracksuit bottoms, sports logos or leggings)
- Grey shorts or red and white summer dress / skirts / shorts
- White or red polo shirt
- Red jumper or cardigan (no sports logos)
- Black shoes / trainers (predominantly black and securely fit on child’s feet. No heels, bright coloured trainers or football footwear)
We encourage children with long hair to tie it back to help prevent the spread of head lice. Headbands and ties must be neutral colours, e.g. red, white or black.
No hoodies or other tops to be worn to school or in the classroom other than the year 6 leavers hoodies.
Children may wear studs or sleepers, but all piercings need to be removed for PE. If your child is unable to take them out by themselves, this needs to be done at home before school.
No make-up, nail varnish, false nails or false lashes.
We encourage children not to wear jewellery other than a watch. School is not responsible for the loss or damage of precious items, such as necklaces and bracelets.
Uniform can be ordered from Vortex or purchased at local supermarkets.
Black or blue sport shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms.
On PE days, children must come to school in their school uniform. Hair must be tied back for PE and all piercings removed.
Ordering online is best for a quicker delivery, however you can obtain an order form from the office and return it to them once completed.
Any specific clothing requirements outside of the above uniform should be discussed and agreed with the school’s leadership team. The school provides a ‘nearly new’ uniform shop in the school community room to support all families within school.
