School Uniform

School Uniform
Maryland  Primary School requires all pupils to wear our school uniform.

Our school aims to make sure that school uniform is affordable, and we follow statutory guidance from the Department for Education on the cost of school uniform. We understand that items with distinctive characteristics (such as branded items, or items that have to have a
school logo or a unique fabric/colour/design) cannot be purchased from a wide range of retailers and that requiring many such items limits parents’ ability to ‘shop around’ for a low price. We offer a range of Maryland branded items which can be purchased from the school’s uniform shop. Parents also have the option of purchasing alternative items from other shops, as long as these match the school’s colours.
