At Mead Road School we strongly encourage all children to take a pride in wearing their school uniform as it encourages a sense of identity and belonging. We believe that it also helps foster pride in personal appearance and pride in the school. We ask for your co-operation over uniform, especially concerning footwear and jewellery, as this can be a real health and safety issue. The school colours are maroon, grey and white.
Sweatshirts and T-shirts
Mead Road sweatshirts, jumpers, polo-neck shirts and cardigans are available from the National Schoolwear Centre, 51, High Street, Bromley. (020 8460 0032). Ties are available but are optional.
Outdoor wear: Fleeces and Raincoats
Mead Road fleeces and raincoats are available from the PTA.
Shoes should be black, grey, navy or maroon. We ask that both boys and girls wear sensible velcro, buckle, slip-on or lace-up shoes. Children need to be able to do up their own shoes, if possible. Trainers, jelly shoes, high heeled or platform shoes, slingback or open-toed shoes are not suitable for wearing to school. Socks and tights should be white, grey or black.
P.E. kit consists of navy or white shorts, Mead Road T-shirt and plimsolls.
Hair accessories should be of a simple and functional design and in school colours. Long hair must be tied back during PE lessons.
Children should not wear make-up, nail varnish or jewellery to school.
