Breamore C of E Primary School
A foundation for life
Uniform

The school positively encourages the wearing of its uniform, and for many years has been grateful to receive total support from parents, the PTA and Governors in implementing this Policy.  The aim is to keep the uniform simple in order to minimise cost.  The uniform gives the children and the school a strong sense of identity, which we believe is important.

The school does not have a recognised supplier of its uniform.  However, the school’s T-shirts and sweatshirts can only be bought through the school office.

An adaptation to the uniform listed below will, of course, be allowed for any pupil who is unable to comply for cultural or religious reasons.  In these circumstances parents are asked to consult with the Headteacher in order to establish a sensible compromise.

Financial Assistance for School Uniform and PE Kit:

Although the School has a designated uniform which all children are encouraged to wear, there is usually no provision for financial assistance with its purchase whilst children are of primary age.  If you wish to apply for financial assistance for this purpose, please contact the Divisional Office.

PE and Games Kit

Clearly named drawstring bag.  
Navy blue shorts.  
Navy blue Breamore T-shirt. 
Football boots/trainers for outdoor games lessons – tightly fastened.
White/black plimsolls for indoor PE lessons. (Gusset type preferred for younger children.) 

Please ensure that these do not have black soles as they mark the floors and apparatus.

As we do much of our PE curriculum outside, children should be warm and comfortably clothed. The school has tracksuits for sale, or you may provide an alternative.  Forms for ordering any item of the uniform are available from the School Office.

Shoes:

We understand that these can be a very expensive item when children are growing so quickly.  Please ensure shoes are sensible and safe with low broad-based heels.  We appreciate the shoes being black or dark blue. It is not appropriate for children to wear trainers throughout the day.

Hair:

Long hair should be tied back.
Headbands can be worn, but plain blue, brown or black only

Jewellery:
Jewellery is not allowed, for safety reasons. One pair of small studs is permitted for pierced ears only if absolutely necessary. Any parents who feel they cannot comply with the request must complete a disclaimer form from the office and supply tape for the pupil to cover during gym/PE.

Children must take responsibility for their watches if worn, and for all personal property in school.

Physical Education:
For safety reasons, no child will be allowed to participate in PE lessons unless he or she is correctly dressed.  This includes having a pair of plimsolls.  Training shoes are unsuitable for gymnastic activities and should not be worn on PE apparatus. All jewellery must be removed for PE lessons and long hair should be secured.

Swimming:

Girl’s swimming costumes should be one-piece and swimming hats must be worn by children with long hair.

Marking Property:

Please mark all garments and footwear boldly with your child’s name.  This is a great time saver when things go missing, and name labels are checked termly. Lost property is kept at school for a short period of time. Unclaimed items may be retained to be sold by the second-hand stall or at jumble sales.

Purchase of Second Hand Uniform:

If your child grows out of any items of school uniform, and it is still in good condition, we will willingly try to sell it on for you.  From time to time parents organise a second-hand clothing stall.
