At MontpelierPrimary School all children are required to wear school uniform. Items marked * have the school logo and are only available from Juniper 154 -156 The Broadway West Ealing. Grey trousers and skirts may be purchased from any supplier. We prefer children to wear black shoes. Please avoid shoes with flashing lights or those with laces until your child can tie them independently. Please avoid open toe sandals for health and safety reasons.
The uniform is as follows:
*Purple Fleece for outer wear – this must not be worn in place of a cardigan / sweatshirt as children become too warm in the building.
*Purple polo shirt
*White polo shirt
Grey trousers or shorts
Grey pinafore dress or skirt
Purple gingham dress
Footwear – other than for PE, children should wear black shoes. In the nursery, children may wear trainers.
Boots above the ankle should not be worn other than on days of snowfall or extreme icy weather.
*White/Purple T shirt
Black shorts (dark, plain tracksuits may be worn for outdoor sport).
Black plimsolls with elastic or Velcro – for indoor use
Trainers – for outdoor sports afternoons and events
Please note – trainers must not be worn for indoor PE (plimsolls or bare feet only).
(The school will endeavour to provide a spare PE kit when the kit has been forgotten or mislaid)
Book Bag – these are available to purchase from the school office.
All items should be clearly labelled with the child’s name. Writing the name on with biro is not sufficient as it washes out with time. Juniper will name items on request for an extra charge.
For reasons of health and safety jewellery must not be worn in school except for known religious reasons. If you require your child to wear religious jewellery please inform the class teacher in writing. Stud earrings are allowed but parents will be asked to remove other earrings. The wearing of jewellery is dangerous as it can cause unnecessary injuries and should be removed for PE.
Watches are worn at the owner’s own risk but must also be removed for PE.
Makeup, visible tattoos and nail polish are not allowed to be worn in school.
- Any hair that is longer than the back of the neck should be tied back away from the face and eyes throughout the school day. Hair bands alone are insufficient.
- For ease of identification, and for purposes of safeguarding, faces should not be covered or obstructed.
- Where a child is not wearing the correct uniform, the school may request that s/he wear a provided sweatshirt, on a temporary basis, for the day.
- Children are not allowed to carry mobile phones in school. If your child requires a phone, you should write to the school explaining the reason and the phone must then be left at the school office at the start of the school day and collected when your child leaves to go home. Phones should not be called during the school day and should remain switched off. Children will normally collect their telephones after 3.20pm.
Your child is eligible for a uniform grant if you are receiving Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (income based) or Incapacity Benefit and your child is in reception year or year groups three or five in primary schools.
