School uniform is compulsory at Mangotsfield Church of England Primary School and learners are expected to wear it at all times. The school believes that uniform fosters a sense of identity, pride and community and promotes equality.
The uniform consists of:
- Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan (preferably with school logo)
- White/light blue polo shirt
- Grey or black trousers, pinafore dresses, tailored skirts or shorts (leggings, lycra and denim items are not permitted)
- Black, white or grey socks or tights
- Plain black school shoes (although we will allow plain black trainers, shoes are the preferred option), boots and open-toed shoes are not permitted
In the summer there are alternatives of:
- Blue and white gingham dress
- Grey or black tailored shorts (cycling shorts or lycra shorts are not permitted)
All skirts, shorts and dresses should be of a reasonable length - deemed to be mid-thigh or longer.
Polo shirts and sweatshirts and other school-branded items are available to buy from Monkhouse via the link below.
Non-logoed alternatives can be sourced from other providers.
Learners should wear suitable clothes for all PE lessons.
- PE T-shirt coloured gold/yellow (no T-shirts with logos on are allowed)
- Plain black or navy shorts of a reasonable length - deemed to be mid-thigh or longer
- Training shoes or daps, preferably black in colour
- When the weather demands, a pair of plain black or navy jogging bottoms and a plain black or navy jacket may be worn
- Long hair must be tied back for PE or sports activities
Jewellery, including rings, should not be worn to school.
If learners have pierced ears, only one pair of small studs should be worn for health and safety reasons. Earrings must be covered for PE lessons.
Small, non-smart watches may also be worn.
Make up is not permitted to be worn. This includes nail varnish and temporary tattoos.
Hair Styles and Accessories
Learners' hair styles should be appropriate for school.
Long hair should be tied back and must not impede vision, cover the face or present a health and safety risk.
Head coverings for religious or cultural reasons should be black/dark in colour.
Reasonable adjustments to our uniform policy are possible on the grounds of equality. Please email the leadership team, via the school office, with any requests. These will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Learners may be permitted to wear non-school uniform for specified days and events e.g. when raising money for charity, marking a national day of celebration or attending a residential visit.
Items worn on such occasions are still expected to be safe and appropriate for school and must:
- Be of a suitable length - mid-thigh length or longer
- Fully cover the tops of learner's arms and bodies e.g. no cropped tops, strapless or spaghetti strap tops
- Only consist of jewellery items stated above (one pair of small stud earrings and a non-smart watch)
- Consist of shoes that are flat and with a closed-toe
- Not contain any branding, slogans or images that are inappropriate for school
