School uniforms can be purchased from Kids Connection in Hertford.
We also sell second-hand uniforms at the school office.
The school uniform consists of:
Any colour polo shirt (white with Mill Mead logo for special occasions).
Dark trousers - blue, black or grey may be worn by boys and girls.
Dark skirt or pinafore - blue, black or grey.
Plain dark tights to be worn only with winter uniform.
Dark tailored shorts (no cycling shorts) blue, black or grey.
A school summer dress or two-piece outfit, lilac and white check may be worn from after the Spring break until the autumn half term. Two-piece outfits must be worn together and not as separates. Summer dresses must not be worn with tights.
Shoes: Any black or navy blue traditional fitted shoes or fitted sandals with closed toes. In extreme weather conditions, children will need to wear boots but will also require school shoes with them. Boots should not be worn in school. Children should bring trainers to school if they wish to use the timber trails at break and lunchtime.
School hat: Mill Mead (royal) blue baseball cap worn for PE sessions and in the playground during the summer months. These hats are also worn during school trips. Meads children might have a yellow Meads hat instead.
Coats: All pupils to have a coat at school either waterproof or warm, according to the weather. Hats, gloves and scarves will be expected during colder weather.
Hair: All children who have hair that falls below collar length must have their hair tied up. This applies to boys and girls alike. Shorter hair must be kept off the face using Alice bands or clips. Shaved hair patterns are not permitted.
Watches: Pupils may wear wristwatches from Year 2 upwards provided they are not a distraction.
Jewellery: No jewellery should be worn to school. Only single ear piercings are allowed. Ears that are to be pierced, should be done so over the summer holiday to allow time for healing. Pupils with pierced ears may wear studs. Earrings should not be worn on PE days. Freshly pierced ears need to be covered by a plaster, provided from home.
Swimming Costumes: One piece costume for girls and trunks for boys, no swimming shorts. Goggles may be worn at the discretion of the swimming instructor. All pupils, other than those with very short hair, will need to wear a swimming hat. A warm hat must be worn during the return journey to school when hair is wet. A swimming kit should be supplied in a drawstring bag, not a rucksack due to limited space.
Non-Uniform Days: Clothes must be suitable for playing and working at school. Shoulders, tummies and large areas of flesh should never be bared.
In addition to the uniform, this is a list of all the equipment that all pupils should have in class every day:
