School Uniform

The school logo is a kingfisher. This is because of a competition run at the school for the children to design the new logo. RM-Logo The children were asked to think about animals associated with the nearby river in Melksham. The Kingfisher was a popular choice and the overall winning design used to create the River Mead School logo.

PE Kit

We expect P.E clothes to be kept in a named bag and be available in school all week. Cloakroom space is limited so children should not bring large sports bags to school. Shorts and a t-shirt should be worn for P.E and games. Indoor P.E is done in bare feet and trainers are required for outdoor P.E.  For outdoor physical activities a tracksuit top/sweatshirt, or jumper with black jogging bottoms and trainers is necessary for use in colder and/or damp weather.

Preferred colours: black shorts and t-shirts are in house colours. Children are advised on their colour.

If a child comes to school in inappropriate footwear, heels, slingbacks, fashion boots, etc… they will be required to wear their plimsolls.
