School Uniform

At Temple Meadow it is school policy to wear school uniform.  We believe that this helps promote positive identity and unity, supports discipline, sets standards and prevents pupils from wearing unsafe, unsuitable ‘fashion’ clothing and shoes, which can also be more costly and harder to replace. Sweatshirts, cardigans, reversible fleece/waterproofs, fleeces and polo shirts with the school logo are all available from Ace Embroidery via their website in a range of sizes. Direct link available on Temple Meadow website.
