School Uniform

We are driven by our desire to provide a positive, safe and stimulating environment.

At Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy we encourage our children to take pride in everything they do, including their appearance.



Our uniform comprises of navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan (FS2-Y5) or a burgundy sweatshirt or cardigan (Y6) with the school logo, a navy and green Tinsley Meadows tie, a white collared shirt and either black or grey trousers or a skirt or pinafore dress.

If head scarfs are worn these should be plain black safety head scarfs.

Plain black school shoes should be worn with no visible branding. For safety reasons we ask that children wear sensible shoes with grip, not flip flops or shoes with a high heel.

In the summer months children may wear navy checked dresses and tailored black or grey shorts.

Please ensure that all items of clothing, including coats and shoes, are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

PE Kit

For PE activities we ask that children wear black shorts, a white t-shirt and plimsolls or trainers. For outdoor PE in colder weather, plain black or navy tracksuit bottoms and a plain black or navy sweatshirt are required, these should be kept in a small drawstring bag. If your child has long hair please ensure that they have a bobble to tie it back.

Guidance on the wearing of Jewellery

We would discourage children from wearing jewellery in school to prevent loss, damage or injury.  However, if children have pierced ears we ask that only studs are worn.  All jewellery, including stud earrings, must be removed before PE, swimming and any other sports or games activities.


Where can I buy the uniform?

We ask parents and carers to support us in implementing this dress code.
