There is a school uniform which is worn throughout the school. All children at Abbey Mead are expected to wear the school uniform. School uniform, including book bags, can be ordered and collected from school. Alternatively parents and carers can buy from the Uniform Direct shop at 54-56 Humberstone Gate, Leicester LE1 3PJ or online at www.uniform-direct.com. The online option may be the most convenient for parents, as it can be delivered to home. The school is happy for parents to come and try on samples to ensure they have the correct size, prior to making any on-line purchases.
School uniform is an important part of a child’s school life as it:
• Gives the children a sense of belonging and being part of the school
• The risk of bullying regarding a pupils clothing is significantly reduced
• When attending school outings, children can easily be identified as belonging to Abbey Mead
• It prepares children for secondary school
• Book bags support children’s reading progress and links with home/school
