We encourage all of our pupils to wear a school uniform to establish a corporate identity within the community; to ensure sensible, safe standards of dress for the children and to encourage a sense of both personal and school pride.  We expect and encourage high standards of personal appearance at Monksdown.

General points on uniform and dress:

  • Please mark all clothing clearly with your child’s name .  Printed labels can be ordered on the internet however, handwritten names are perfectly acceptable (please regularly check that names are still visible throughout the year).
  • Sturdy black shoes (training shoes are not suitable).
  • Sweatshirts and t-shirts can be purchased from  local
    clothing stores located on Muirhead Avenue
