School Uniform

At Hersden we have thought carefully about our school uniform and have chosen it to be comfortable and practical for primary aged children and affordable for families. 

Hersden uses the online uniform supplier Mapac to supply uniform to parents.
The school does not stock uniform on site.

To purchase uniform online, parents can visit the online store by clicking the link below:

Size Guide

The sweatshirt/cardigan is the only part of the school uniform that requires the school logo, which means that many other items can be purchased in supermarkets and children’s clothes shops, as well as the Mapac online shop.

Parents can choose to have uniform orders delivered to the school, free of charge.

Please take a look at the documents below if you need help with setting up an account or making an order. If you do not have access to a computer/internet, you can  contact Mapac's friendly team on 01923 255525.

Non-Uniform Days:

A non-uniform day allows a child to express his/her individuality through their attire. The expectation is for the child to wear garments that fit appropriately and are non-offensive. Any article of clothing that is deemed inappropriate for a non-uniform day, will result in the child being required to change into school uniform.

Sometimes for school trips other clothing is requested, please consider appropriateness for the weather conditions expected.

Health and Safety:

For safety reasons jewellery must not be worn in school. Only watches and stud earrings may be worn if necessary but they must be removed for P.E. lessons by your child.
