Manor Leas Junior Academy
We believe that school uniform helps promote a sense of belonging and pride in our school. We have deliberately made it simple and cost effective in the expectation that all the children will wear it.
Uniform for Pupils
Red Manor Leas Sweatshirt or Cardigan (Uniform Direct only)
Grey Skirt, shorts or Trousers
White blouse/school shirt
Manor Leas red/grey stripe tie (Uniform Direct)
Black sensible school shoes - no boots, sandals, trainers or heels
Please note that 'Summer Dresses' are NOT part of school uniform. Shorts, skirts and short sleeve shirts with ties are appropriate for warmer weather.
Indoors: Red Manor Leas PE tops (Uniform Direct) & Black Shorts with plimsolls
Outdoors: Similar clothing can be worn for outdoor PE but a warm top may be needed on occasions.
Trainers are ideal for both the playing field and playground.
Children require a swimming costume, towel and swimming hat. Girls must wear a one piece costume. Boys should wear trunks - not swimshorts.
Jewellery and accessories
Sensible bows, headbands and other hair ornaments may be worn if they are in keeping with the school uniform (red, grey, white or black)
Large bows, headbands and distracting hair ornaments (such as animal ears) are not to be worn.
In the interests of safety, children should not wear jewellery, other than ‘studs’ if ears are pierced. These must be removed for all PE activities including swimming.
Large headwear or hair accessories are not permitted unless worn for religious purposes.
Pupils are responsible for their own personal possessions whilst in school. Please name all items of clothing.
Children should not wear jeans to school
We try hard to prevent children getting glue or paint on clothing but accidents are inevitable. If you wish to provide an apron for art, an old shirt makes a really good (and cheap) cover-all.
Children should not bring toys unless asked to do so for a particular reason.
No makeup or nail varnish is to be worn.
