Uniform Info

At Mengham Junior School we wear our school uniform with pride.  We believe that our uniform helps the children to identify with the school community and feel proud to belong.  Please ensure your child arrives at school in the correct uniform each day.

The Uniform

    • Black trousers, shorts, skirt or red and white checked summer dress
    • Red or white polo shirt (with or without school logo)
    • Red sweatshirt or sweat cardigan (with or without school logo)
    • Black shoes (plain black leather trainers, without logos, are acceptable)

    Your child will be allocated a school ‘House’ when they enrol at our school.  We have 4 Houses, they are Ainslie (Blue), MacArthur (Green), Nelson (Yellow) and Shackleton (Red).

The P.E. Kit

  • P.E. T-shirt (with logo) in House colour
  • Black Shorts (cycling shorts acceptable for girls)
  • Black plimsolls or trainers (for outdoor P.E.)
  • A tracksuit can be worn outside in cold weather

It is very important for health and hygiene that children have a change of outer clothes and footwear for P.E. lessons.

Your child will be allocated a school ‘House’ when they enrol at our school.  We have 4 Houses, they are Ainslie (Blue), MacArthur (Green), Nelson (Yellow) and Shackleton (Red).

Protective clothing

We recommend that you provide an overall or adult’s old shirt for your child to wear for messy art and craft activities.

Other useful information

All P.E. kit and school uniform should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

P.E. kit should be kept in a clearly named bag that can be fastened and hung on a peg.  We advise that the kit is brought in each Monday and taken home on Friday for washing.

You will be contacted by text if, for any reason, your child fails to have their P.E. kit in school when required.  It is very important that all children participate in P.E. lessons whenever possible.  If, however, your child has suffered illness or injury, please write a letter to your child’s teacher, to excuse them from P.E. that day.


Children with pierced ears should wear stud earrings only whilst in school.  No other jewellery is allowed other than a sensible watch (not a watch with camera or access to the internet).  

NB: Children with newly pierced ears are allowed to keep their studs in for P.E. for the first two weeks after piercing, provided the studs are taped over.  After that, children should remove their earrings for P.E.  Please make sure your child can take out and replace their own earrings; staff are not allowed to do this for them. If they cannot do this by themselves, parents should ensure their child does not wear earrings on days when they are doing PE.

At the end of each half term, we will endeavour to return named items of lost property to their owners.  Unclaimed items will be sent to a local charity shop or clothes bank.
