Marchwood Junior School

Welcome to our school


All parents, teachers and children can identify themselves proudly with Marchwood Junior School. School uniform is one way in which this sense of identity is helped. The vast majority of parents support us in this endeavour and the turnout in school is very smart. None of the items on our list should cost more than children's normal day clothes and the range offers some choice.

Boots which involve a lot of lacing are unsuitable for school as they often double changing times. Shoes, with high or narrow heels, flimsy sandals or 'flip-flops' are also unsuitable as school wear. Several items of uniform are available from the P.T.F.A. – please ask at the School Office.


P.E. Kit

It is important that children change for P.E. and begin to develop a sense of personal hygiene.

The School P.E. kit consists of a yellow school T-shirt (available from skoolkit) and blue/black shorts or leggings. Indoor work takes place in bare feet. Trainers are needed for outdoor work and a tracksuit or jogging pants and sweatshirt would be useful as extra layers to keep warm.

Children may play participate in sports  on the field such as tag rugby, cross country and football. For these activities they may wish to wear football boots. They will also need a change of socks.

Jewellery must not be worn for P.E. for safety reasons.

Please supply a bag for P.E. Kit. It is important that P.E. Kit is in school ready for use every day. Please get into the habit of your child bringing it in on a Monday morning, keeping it in school all week and then taking it home for washing on a Friday.

Jewellery and Toys

Jewellery should not be worn at school as it is unsafe during P.E., Games and playtimes. Children with pierced ears must only wear studs. Earrings are not suitable for school and can cause very unpleasant injuries in play or games. Children will be asked to remove any type of earring or stud before participating in P.E. or games.

If you do have your child’s ears pierced could you please have it done at the very beginning of the Summer Holiday as participation in games and P.E. during term time is very difficult when children have been told to keep studs in newly pierced ears. If they cannot remove their earrings for P.E., please provide your child with medicated tape to cover them.

Please try to keep the number of non-essential items brought to school to a minimum as they do present problems of supervision. 

We are not able to accept responsibility for items which are lost, although we do all we can to recover them within reason
