Uniform Information

At SMC we believe it is important that the children learn to take pride in their appearance and come to school in the correct uniform at all times and with the correct equipment for learning. Please ensure that the children are wearing the correct uniform, all items of which should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. If clothes are named we can usually reunite them with their owner. Searching for unnamed clothes causes a great deal of distress to the children and can waste valuable class time. Unclaimed items are recycled or disposed of at the end of each term.


Please note that children should come to school with their own stationery equipment.  This is to include the following at all times:

A small pencil case (these need to fit into children's trays).

  • pencil (s)
  • ruler (30 cm)
  • rubber
  • pencil sharpener
  • whiteboard pen
  • glue stick
  • colouring pencils (not felt/ gel pens)


Please ensure all items are labelled.

Year 6 children would also benefit from having a protractor and compass.

Liquid paper/ correction fluids or similar are not to be used.


All children should also have a named water bottle to be cleaned and filled at home and brought into school each day.

To purchase uniform, please visit our uniform shop to purchase all items of school uniform except for ties which are available to order and pay for via Scopay, our online payments system.


Please see the leaflet below with ordering details.  Orders are processed twice a month, with cut off on the 15th  and at the end of each month. Items will be delivered free of charge to the school for collection from the school office  – the supplier will let you know that your order is ready to be collected. This will be approximately 2 weeks after the order cut-off date (other than during the school holidays when orders will be held until the school re-opens after the break). It is possible to order uniform to be delivered directly to your home, however postage charges will apply for this service. Please note that this does not speed up when you receive your order - the same delivery dates will still apply

The supplier does accept returns, however you will need to cover the postage cost of returning items (unless the item is faulty). To help ensure you order the correct size, we  have a set of Sweatshirts, Cardigans, Hoodies and PE T -shirts in each size to try on if required – please ask at Reception.


The PTA regularly arrange the sale of second-hand uniform.


If you have any concerns over the purchase of school uniforms, please do speak/ email the school office as we may be able to help.
