School Uniform

We have a compulsory school uniform for children in Year 1 to Year 6: navy or grey shorts, trousers, joggers, pinafore-dress or skirt with a pale blue polo shirt and navy sweat shirt with ‘Malmesbury Primary School’ embroidered on.  A summer dress in white and blue check or stripe is also available for the girls.

It is not compulsory for children in nursery or reception classes to wear school uniform.

These can all be purchased from: Khalsa, 338 Bethnal Green Road, London E2 0AH.  School sweat shirts can also be ordered via the Tesco on line service.

Children should at all times be cleanly and sensibly dressed especially shoes. Please make sure they can manage their clothes as children are expected to dress and undress themselves. During bad weather, please make sure your child has a warm coat to wear at playtimes and during the lunch hour.  Aprons are provided for children to wear during classroom activities which are messy.

Children wear team colours for PE.

Children will be advised in year 1 which colour team they are in for PE and will remain in that team throughout their time at Malmesbury. Team colours are red, blue, yellow, green and children will be expected to wear a t-shirt/sweatshirt in their team colour.

Gym/ dance will be carried out in bare feet. Trainers/ plimsolls must be worn for PE at all other times.

We will be doing PE outdoors so please ensure that your child is appropriately dressed in the colder months, in tracksuit bottoms/ tracksuit top/sweatshirt etc.

Headscarves are a health and safety risk for the children while they are doing Sport or PE, so the children are not allowed to wear them during these times. If you wish your child to cover their head please provide a sports headscarf or simple bandana for the children to wear.
