Governors and staff believe that uniform contributes to the sense of belonging to a school.
Our school uniform is blue and grey. Blue sweatshirts and white polo shirts bearing the MJS logo are available from Pupil Schoolwear in Swadlincote and Melbourne Print Shop, Melbourne. We ask that children have flat black shoes, not trainers, for everyday wear, and that jewellery is not worn in school.
For competitive and team sports activities, children are divided between four “houses” as follows:
Derwent - Green
Haddon - Blue
Kinder - Red
Strutt - Yellow
PE T-shirts in the four associative colours are available from Pupil Schoolwear in Swadlincote and Melbourne Print Shop. In addition, all children will need PE shoes or trainers, and for cold days, a long-sleeved games shirt/tracksuit top. We ask that all PE kit to be stored in one or two PE bags, clearly labelled with your child's name, which are hung on pegs outside the classrooms. Please ensure that your child brings home their PE kit each holiday for washing and checking that the sizes are still suitable.
