We expect all parents to provide school uniform for their child and that pupils wear their uniforms with pride. When the children are inside the building, shirts are tucked in and cardigans/sweatshirts are not to be tied around the waist.

Our aim is always to keep expectations simple but apply them consistently. For example:

  • School shoes should be black and toes covered i.e no sandals. We have spare black  pumps available at the office should a child forget their shoes one day.
  • Children are not allowed to wear loom bands during the school day. This is also the case for other wrist bands.
  • No make-up is allowed and all hair should be tied back if it is shoulder length (for reasons of safety and hygiene). The office do stock some nail varnish remover ‘just in case’!

Whilst we are aware that enforcement of uniform can create tension, we hope that by dressing smartly, the children will be proud of how they look and that this then reflects on attitudes to learning in class.

For Boys:

Mayhill sweatshirt, white shirt or Mayhill polo shirt, grey/black trousers or shorts.

White, black or grey socks.

Black school shoes with laces, slip-on, velcro or buckle fastening are acceptable.

Lightweight shoes are acceptable for the summer months.

  • No fashion shoes of an exaggerated type are to be worn
  • No boots
  • No sandals
  • No trainers

For Girls:

Mayhill sweatshirt or cardigan, white shirt or Mayhill polo shirt, grey/black skirt or grey pinafore dress. Appropriate black/grey school trousers, not jeans or high fashion. White socks or, in winter, grey, black or red tights. In summer, red and white checked cotton dresses may be worn. Black school shoes with laces, slip-on, velcro or buckle fastening are acceptable. No sandals, as these generally provide poor foot support and protection and are inadequate on wet playgrounds!

  • No fashion shoes of an exaggerated type are to be worn
  • No other colours
  • No boots
  • No high heels or platforms
  • No sandals
  • No trainers

P.E Kit

For Physical Education lessons, boys and girls wear black or navy shorts, a Mayhill PE T-shirt or a plain white T-shirt. Children work barefoot indoors unless they have a foot infection, but will need either plimsolls or trainers for playground lessons and we recommend trainers for PE lessons on the field.

In winter, a black/navy tracksuit, or Mayhill sweatshirt and black/navy joggers can be worn for outside games. Hoodies are not acceptable. Hair must be tied back off children's faces.


We do not specify a uniform coat but during winter it is important that children have their coats in school. As well as break time and lunch time there may be other times when pupils are working outside the classroom and for these occasions they will require a coat. In summer, we ask that children are sent to school with a light rain mac.


We encourage the wearing of a hat during the summer term for protection against the sun. A hat with the school logo may be purchased online.

Art/craft shirts

All children should have protective clothing for use in art and craft sessions. Old shirts are useful for this.

Jewellery and make-up

Make up and nail varnish may NOT be worn in school and we do not allow the wearing of jewellery except a watch and plain stud earrings. Children who cannot remove and replace earrings themselves should not wear them on P.E days. No child is permitted to wear any form of jewellery, including ear-studs, during a P.E lesson.

Hair must be tied back off children’s faces. Girls should wear regular hair / Alice band or clips and not over-sized hair bands and bows/flowers which can be a distraction.

Body adornments e.g. mimic tattoos, hair braids / beads and body piercings are not acceptable in school.
