The Mayflower Primary School

School Uniform

Last week the uniform policy was reshared as there has been a crucial amendment added following demand from the development of our curriculum.

From September, we want to be encouraging learning to take place outside as often as possible. This incentive is being driven by various research that suggests learning outside is beneficial to wellbeing and also helps to reinforce the values needed for children to flourish.

Therefore, we are asking that all children are supplied with wellington boots, waterproof jackets and waterproof over trousers so we are not restricted by the weather. All of these must be labelled with the child’s name so they can be easily identified. These will remain in school in appropriate storage per year group.

Government guidelines for September stresses that all PE and outside learning should be taken outside as much as possible, so could you please ensure that your child has appropriate outdoor PE kit including long tracksuit trousers, jumper and sensible trainers.

Thank you for your time and continued support in this matter.
Thank you
Ms Larue
