We have a dress code at Abbey Meadows which we encourage all children and staff to follow. The expectation for pupils is:
For girls: Grey or black trousers or skirt or Red and white dress
For boys: Grey or black trousers
Red sweatshirt (upto and including year 5)
Black sweatshirt (Year 6 only)
Plimsolls (to be worn as indoor shoes)
Whilst all of these items can be purchased locally we do offer a small range of t-shirts, sweatshirts, fleeces, hats and bookbags with the school logo. These can be purchased from the school office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during school hours. You can also order online from www.pbparentonline.co.uk/abbeymeadows.
recent changes to the online ordering process are described here
We ask that, for safety reasons, children do not wear jewellery other than one pair of plain ear studs.
To ensure children get the most from their PE lessons it is important that they are dressed appropriately. Every child should have shorts, a t-shirt and a pair of plimsolls. It is also useful to have a warm tracksuit and trainers as PE takes place throughout the year and we are outside as much as possible. PE kit should be kept in a bag which is clearly labelled with the child’s name.
We also sell a PE kit which includes a bag, shorts and t-shirt.
We recommend that all school clothes, bags and footwear are clearly labelled to ensure children end the day with the same outfit they started with.
Hair should be tied back for PE and swimming lessons and all jewellery should be removed including earrings.
