At Mellor, uniform is an important part of our school’s identity. We believe that children wearing school uniform promotes a sense of pride, symbolises belonging to the school and creates a sense of community.
We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the dress code policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. Parents should ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair. Head scarves and hair accessories e.g. bands and bows should also be plain and in school colours.
The school's Dress Code
Blue, Black or Grey
Sweatshirt/ Cardigans (no hoodies)
Black or Blue Mellor logo top or completely plain top. (No other logos allowed)
Polo Shirts or Cotton Shirts
Plain, all black school shoes or completely black trainers (no white/coloured logos, markings, sole or flashing lights).
NO LOGO OTHER THAN THE MELLOR SUN SHOULD BE SEEN ON CLOTHING
It is essential that you label or sew in a tag to your child’s clothing and equipment. Lost property is full of un-labelled items which can’t be easily returned to you.
PE kit: Black shorts or jogging bottoms and sweatshirts (no hoodies), plain white t-shirt, indoor plimsolls and all black outdoor trainers (no coloured soles, logos or flashing lights). If children already wear black trainers as part of their school uniform these can also be worn for PE.
- Jewellery: On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring sleepers in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance. No stud ear-rings please. We ask the children either to remove these objects during PE and games, or to cover them with tape. School staff are not responsible for the safe keeping of jewellery and cannot be held responsible if items go missing.
Buying school uniform
New logoed school uniform can be purchased from Uniform Direct at their Leicester store at 54-56 Humberstone Gate, LE1 4PJ.
Alternatively, parents can order online at www.uniform-direct.com - click on Find Your School, select Primary Schools and then scroll down until you find Mellor Community Primary School and click on the box.
Parents without internet access may telephone their order to 01522 510016
Parents can now also purchase gently-used uniforms at a fraction of the price from Uniformd, with funds from sales going directly back to the school. When you buy on the platform, you are not only investing back into the school but also contributing to a more sustainable future, reducing the amount of wearable uniform going to land-fill.
Parents can also donate second-hand uniform that is in good condition to be re-sold on the site. Please see the school office.
Please note all items of our dress code can also usually be purchased from local supermarkets. There is no requirement for children to wear jumpers with the Mellor logo, as long as these are plain and in school colours.
