Here at Brighton Avenue Primary School, wearing the agreed school uniform, which includes footwear, ensures our children, staff and community develop a sense of belonging, when everyone is dressed alike, promoting a strong sense of unity.
We pride ourselves on the joint support that parents and school give to this important part of school life.
We work incredibly hard to ensure that all children wear the same uniform and understand that they are part of our school.
Please note that the Governors have agreed that uniforms (including footwear) are compulsory and your child will be given one to borrow if he/she forgets their own
Our school uniform is a royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan and a gold / yellow polo shirt. Dark (black or grey) school trousers and / or skirts are acceptable. Black leggings or jeans are not permitted to be worn as part of the school uniform
In the summer months, girls can wear blue or yellow summer dresses.
Black school shoes or PLAIN black trainers are acceptable. Footwear should not include heels or open toe footwear as this is a health and safety risk.
Sweatshirts, cardigans and polo shirts can be ordered through the school office.
Other items of uniform, such as fleece jackets and waterproof jackets are optional.
Sport tops are not considered suitable clothing for school.
We also ask parents to refrain from sending children to school with hairstyles that include: shaved lines, coloured highlights or Mohicans.
Extreme hair styles in school are forbidden.
No jewellery is allowed to be worn in school at any time.
For PE and games lessons as well as after school clubs, the children should wear the following clothes.
Indoor PE and Games
Children must wear plain black shorts and plain white T-Shirts (no logos please). Indoor trainers or sandshoes should be available although bare feet is more appropriate for some activities. Loose baggy clothing is not suitable and is potentially dangerous.
Expensive sportswear is not considered suitable for school.
Outdoor PE and Games
This should be the same as indoor in Summer months. However, when the weather is cooler, track suits are needed.
We ask that PE kits are kept at school in a drawstring bag with your child’s name clearly written on them. We also encourage our children to take home their PE kits at regular intervals for washing – once per week is certainly adequate
