Uniform and Equipment

With all aspects of school uniform, we do our upmost to provide images of acceptable and unacceptable uniform, to allow correct choices to be made when purchasing. If in doubt please refer to this information prior to making purchases. It is the discretion of the school to make decisions regarding uniform that does not conform to the requirements of the school code of dress. If you have any questions or wish to discuss any element of the policy before you buy items, please do get in touch. Please remember that choosing The Marches School implies a willingness to conform to school uniform guidelines at all times.

This policy is fully endorsed and approved by the school’s board of governors. The school views the wearing of correct uniform as a key element of the schools identity and standards as a community. Any fashion trend which may from time to time become popular should be reserved for leisure wear outside school and should not be worn to school.

Key Uniform Items:

School ties must be worn in a small knot that covers the top button. When the jumper is not worn, the tie must reach the waist in length.

Shirts must be white with a collar and buttons that fasten to the neck, not polo or blouse. Shirts must be tucked in.

School jumpers must be worn at all times in the first 5 half terms of each year. The grey is for Years 7- 10 and black for Year 11.

Uniform Recycling

As your child’s school life comes to an end, we are hoping that there are some items of their uniform which have not. Please may we ask parents and carers of Year 11 students, who have items of school uniform and P.E. kit which are no longer needed or have been outgrown, to kindly donate these to the school for recycling. In particular the P.E. Kit, black Year 11 jumpers and ties.

By donating items of school uniform you can contribute to the greater aim of recycling in the school and assist other parents/carers with the purchase of uniform.

If you have any questions or would like further information regarding uniform recycling please contact 01691 664416 or e-mail admin@mar.mmat.co.uk
