At Mrs Mary King's we believe that wearing a uniform is an essential part of school life that supports our ethos and values. A uniform helps bring equality and raises standards and expectations.
The colour scheme is grey trousers and knee length skirts, white shirts and blouses and royal blue pullovers and cardigans. Girls should wear plain grey or white tights in the winter.
In the summer girls may wear blue gingham dresses. Grey pinafore dresses are also acceptable.
For PE children should have white Tshirts and black shorts. Dark coloured un branded jogging bottoms are acceptable during the winter. Children can also wear blue fleeces in cold weather.
Children should wear sturdy, low heeled black shoes or sandals. Open toed sandals should be avoided and ‘crocks’ are not permitted. Children should have black plimsolls PE and older children (From Year Three) will require trainers,
Girls must not wear knee or ankle length fashion boots. If the weather is so bad as to require boots then Wellingtons are most appropriate.
The school supplies a range of uniform with the school logo embroidered or printed on it. Although this is taken up by the majority of children it is not compulsory and parents can source equivalent items form any supplier provided the shade of blue is a match to the ones the school supplies.
Jewelry is not permitted except plain ear studs. We strongly advise parents to avoid sending children with ear studs as they present a danger on the playground. Ear studs must be removed by children for swimming and PE. Staff are not permitted to help with this. Children should have a small container for them. If they can’t be removed then sticky tape must be used to cover them.(No studs at all for swimming).
Boys should not have hair longer than shoulder length. Girls with longer hair should have it tied up or plaited for safety and hygiene reasons. Deliberately attention seeking and outlandish hairstyles are not permitted. Hair should not cover the eyes.
Book bags are available for carrying most equipment to school. PE kits should be brought in a traditional drawstring bag. Any other bags should be as small as possible as cloakroom space is very limited.
