Uniform

SCHOOL UNIFORM

 

All pupils attending St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School are expected to wear full school uniform. A good, clean, smart appearance is an asset to each pupil, and the school seeks parental support via the home school agreement in the maintenance of such an appearance. We are proud of our uniform and the smart appearance of our pupils which is constantly praised by visitors and the wider community. This in turn benefits our young people.

 

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

In these three year groups, children may wear a shirt and tie or a polo shirt all year round. Parents are best placed to know their child’s needs and may choose either option on a daily basis. However, they cannot mix and match the two e.g. if the children wear a shirt please ensure they are also wearing a tie; if they wear a polo shirt please do not add a tie. Hair accessories should be kept to a minimum, in school colours of red, navy and white. Earrings must be small plain studs, covered with tape or removed for PE lessons. All children should bring a coat to school every day.

GENERAL NOTES ON UNIFORM AND PERSONAL APPEARANCE
Uniform is supplied by Brenda’s, but items can be bought in many different shops.


An optional school fleece is available. Outdoor coats should be a plain dark colour. The wearing of trainers is not acceptable other than in P.E. lessons.

 

School is a working environment, therefore we discourage elaborate hair styles and the over use of hair gel is not allowed. Please ensure that long hair is tied back and any hair bands are of the soft variety in school colours.

 

For health and safety reasons, jewellery should not be worn in school. The exceptions are watches and small, plain stud earrings. No decorative earrings are to be worn. All earrings and watches must be removed for PE and games by the child or taped over before coming to school. Staff are not permitted to remove earrings. It is wise to encourage your child to get into the habit of not wearing watches or earrings on PE days. Thank you for your support in maintaining high standards and expectations in this area.
