Uniform Policy Hersden
Our school uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of our school. We ask you to respect and support our policy and in doing so ensure that your child comes to school wearing the correct uniform and be of smart personal appearance.
At Water Meadows we have thought carefully about our school uniform and have chosen it to be comfortable and practical for primary aged children whilst also being affordable for families.
The sweatshirt/cardigan is the only part of the school uniform that requires the school logo
, which means that many other items can be purchased in supermarkets and children’s clothes shops, as well as the Mapac online shop.
Hersden Village Primary School uniform remains acceptable for children on roll pre July 2019

Book bags, Gym bags and accessories are available to purchase but are entirely optional. We do ask however, that children carry equipment in a small, sensible bag rather than plastic carrier bags. During the summer months we ask all parents to ensure their child brings a hat to school and also has applied sunscreen before coming to school.
Children may not wear hats, caps, handkerchiefs, bandanas, dorags, scarves, or other head coverings indoors at school. Exceptions can be made for religious and/or medical reasons.

Watches can be worn, but must be removed by the child for sporting activities.
No other sweatshirts, jackets, or sweaters are allowed to be worn inside the building. PE Hoodies are to be worn during P.E. only and are not to be worn to and from school.
Trainers are not permitted for daily wear, they are for outdoor PE only. Wellington style boots are only permitted on snowy or very wet days. Luminous socks or highly patterned tights are not considered school uniform. Heeled shoes are not acceptable.
Children may not wear bracelets armbands, or multiple rings. Nails should be free of any artificial enhancements (varnish, acrylic, silk wraps, press-ons, rhinestones, etc.) Make up is not permitted.
A non-uniform day allows a child to express his/her individuality through their attire. The expectation is for the child to wear garments that fit appropriately and are non-offensive. Any article of clothing that is deemed inappropriate for a non-uniform day, will result in the child being required to change into school uniform.
Sometimes for school trips other clothing is requested, please consider appropriateness for the weather conditions expected.
Health and Safety:
For safety reasons jewellery must not be worn in school. Only watches and stud earrings may be worn if necessary but they must be removed for P.E. lessons by your child.
