The aim of the uniform at Merstham Primary School is that it makes pupils feel part of a team and therefore, promotes a positive attitude for learning. We are grateful for the voice of pupils, parents and staff, who have contributed to the final design of the uniform.
All children must have full school uniform, worn correctly, for daily attendance at school. Parents and carers are asked to co-operate fully by providing the uniform and ensuring children wear it correctly to and from school, and at other times as required.

Shoes should be suitable for school wear. Children must not wear trainers or boots to school and younger children should have velcro fastenings if they are not able to tie their shoe laces. Shoes must be closed toe and navy or black.
Please provide your child with a small school bag, in which he or she can carry a reading book, a learning diary, homework and a water bottle. Please note, large holdall type bags cannot be accommodated due to coat peg space. For EYFS and KS1 children, an optional book bag is available from myclothing.com.
Shoulder length hair, for safety and hygiene reasons, should be tied back from the face. Hair accessories should be plain in school colours. If children have pierced ears, only small plain metal studs should be worn and these must be removed for PE. If your child is unable to remove their earings, they are required to make them safe by taping front and back with tape provided from home. This taping may be done at home for younger children.
It is not appropriate for children in primary school to wear make up, nail varnish or jewellery and we ask parents/carers not to allow children to wear it.
In winter, children need a warm waterproof coat. In summer, an anorak, or suitable waterproof should be brought to school when the weather is unsettled. During warm, sunny weather a hat is required, an optional school summer cap is available from SWOTS.
