School uniform

School Uniform

The governors have adopted jade and navy blue as the school colours. Sweatshirts and polo shirts, with the embroidered school logo, can be purchased through Maisies in Wolverton. Grey trousers, shorts, pinafore dresses or skirts should also be worn. It is important that all children feel comfortable in their clothes and shoes and that they can dress and undress themselves.

However, LMS believes that parents should not have to think about the cost of a school uniform when choosing which school to apply for. Therefore, we ensure that our uniform is affordable. This means parents can decide to buy non-branded items from our provider as well as local supermarkets, with the only branded item required being the school sweatshirt. We have ensured that our uniform gives the highest priority to cost and value for money (including the quality and durability of the garment).

Long Meadow holds a small selection of good quality second hand clothes which is available for a small contribution, please enquire at reception for more information.

Children need an outdoor pair of sensible, black shoes or plain black trainers (no coloured logos etc) to wear to school. High-heeled shoes or other unsuitable footwear must not be worn in school.  Make-up or jewellery must also not be worn at school. Children with pierced ears may wear only one sleeper or stud in the lobe of each ear and these must be removed prior to their PE lesson.  Children will not be able to participate in PE if earrings are not removed.

PE Kit
Children are required to come into school in their PE kit on the days they have PE. For gymnastics, children will work in bare feet in the hall to encourage correct development and for reasons of safety. Plimsolls or trainers will be needed for some indoor and outdoor games lessons.

For safety reasons, jewellery must be removed, by the child him/herself, before any PE lesson to avoid the risk of a injury. It is recommended that if your child wishes to have their ears pierced, this is done during the summer break.

Mobile Phones

Children should not bring mobile phones into school.  If you need to contact your child please ring the school office.

Lost Property
We ask that all clothing is named so that lost items can be returned to their owner. A lost property box will be kept in the front entrance.
