We are very proud of the appearance of the children at Bookwell.
We have built up a store of good quality second hand uniform; some is brand new with tickets still attached! This is a fantastic way of recycling as well as saving money. Children grow so quickly and are often only in uniforms for a few months, summer uniform in particular often has very little wear.
There will be a clothing rail in the main foyer or infant yard, depending on the weather, every Friday. Please have a browse and make use of any items that you can.
Boys: grey trousers Girls: grey skirt or pinafore or grey trousers
White or pale blue shirt and school tie, royal blue V neck jumper or cardigan,
dark tights for girls, plain black shoes- no heels.
Summer uniform consists of: pale blue and white check or stripe school dress - no playsuits or gingham shorts. Grey shorts, pale blue or white polo shirt, royal blue
v-neck school jumper or cardigan.
Footwear: predominantly white footwear can be worn with summer uniform but if winter uniform is still worn, footwear must still be black. You can also still wear black shoes with the summer uniform
Children need a blue T-shirt with the school logo and navy blue shorts for PE along with a pair of trainers.
Warmer clothing such as joggers and hoodies can be worn for outdoor PE. Trainers are needed for use on the MUGA.
PE kit should also be worn for After-School sporting clubs. All PE kits should be plain free from any logo or brand name, apart from the school logo. School hoodies and joggers are for PE only and do not replace the school uniform. School hoodies can have a child's name embroidered under the logo but this is optional.
Jewellery in school
Items of jewellery are not allowed in school, apart from a watch.
For safety reasons we do not allow children to wear earrings for school, however if your child has newly pierced ears and studs are being worn until they are healed, they must be removed for school after the initial 6-8 week period. Children wearing new earrings will not be permitted to take part in PE lessons for their own safety. If you must allow your child to have their ears pierced, please have this done at the start of the summer holiday.
Nail varnish is not allowed in school.
For safety reason we ask that children are able to tie back long hair securely for PE lessons and practical activities.
Hair pieces and extensions should not be worn in school.
Uniform can ordered via the school office, or alternatively you can order on-line, direct from our suppliers Identity using the following website.
Our policy is that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos. We have the highest expectations.
Our policy is based on the belief that a school uniform:
- promotes a sense of pride in the school
- engenders a feeling of belonging
- is practical and distinctive
- identifies the children with the school
- is not distracting in class (as fashion clothing might be)
- makes children feel equal to one another in terms of appearance
- reflects the sense both of community and of diversity that the school takes pride in
- is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents
