Here at Melksham Oak we consider our school uniform important for a number of reasons:
- It helps to create an inclusive school community
- It reinforces a sense of shared pride in our school
- It is smart and practical for our students to learn in
We will always take into account particular religious beliefs that impact uniform.
There is an expectation that the uniform will be worn with pride by all students. The following guidelines are in place:
|White shirt||Collared, completely plain white, buttoned formal shirt, either long or short sleeved|
|School jumper||Navy V-necked jumper with school logo. This should be worn in school at all times|
|School tie||Navy, yellow and black striped tie (TBC)|
|Trousers||Black, smart, standard school trousers|
|Skirt||As an alternative to trousers, a plain, black, knee-length skirt may be worn. Plain black or navy opaque tights must be worn with the skirt.|
|Shoes||Flat, entirely black, formal shoes, either leather or faux leather material.|
|Outerwear||Coats and jackets are permitted and advised in adverse weather conditions.|
|Jewellery||No facial piercings.|
|Hair style||Hair should be of a natural colour.|
|Bags||All students need a bag for school.|
|Mobile devices||We advise that mobile phones and other valuable items or left at home. However students may use them during social times.|
The multi-use games area will not be used by students during break or lunchtime and so students will no longer need to bring trainers to school apart from for PE. Students in trainers without a note will be sent home to put on the correct uniform.
In the document below, you will find information about the PE kit expectations we have for students.
