School Uniform

School Uniform

We encourage pupils to wear our school uniform because we believe that if pupils take pride in their appearance, it can influence their attitudes and general conduct in school. It also ensures that everyone is equal.

Our uniform consists of:

  • Bottle green sweatshirt or cardigan.*

Those with embroidered school logo are preferred.

  • Grey skirt or pinafore.
  • Grey trousers or shorts.
  • White polo shirt* or white formal shirt.
  • Green and white check summer dress*
  • Grey or green tights or grey, white or green  socks
  • Sensible, black shoes.

High heels, open toed, sling-back sandals and boots are NOT appropriate footwear for school.

Items marked with* are available to buy from our supplier, Sarah’s Embroidery, based on Penley Industrial Estate. You can get a price list and order by visiting their web site:

https://shop.sarahsembroidery.co.uk and entering ‘Madras School’ into the search facility.

Also available, but not compulsory, are fleeces, light waterproof jackets and reversible coats.

P.E. Kit

For P.E. and games lessons, pupils MUST BRING:

Foundation Phase: 

Slip on plimsolls, bottle green school T-shirt and black shorts.

Key Stage 2:

Bottle green school PE T-shirt, black shorts and trainers.

Apart from a wristwatch and small stud earrings, jewellery should not be worn for school. Health and Safety Regulations state that it must be removed for all P.E., games and swimming lessons and the risk of loss is then great.

Swimming

Provision is made for all KS2 pupils to receive swimming instruction at the Maelor School. This is a compulsory subject within the National Curriculum and all children are therefore required to attend. They should be provided with swimming costume/ trunks, a swimming cap and towel on the relevant day. If you consider that your child is fit to be in school, then they are also fit to swim. Spectators are not allowed on the poolside and we have no provision in school to look after sick children.
