School Uniform

The school uniform is based on the school colours of grey and red.  Good quality red sweatshirts, polo shirts together with grey fleeces are available for sale from most supermarkets and chain stores.  School uniform makes an important contribution to the ethos of the school and the work and attitude of the children. Wearing a school uniform reinforces a sense of community belonging and avoids their best clothes being spoiled.  Please ensure that your child is dressed in clothes that he/she can easily manage.  Younger children benefit from pull-up trousers and skirts and non laced shoes.

Your co-operation in ensuring that your child wears uniform to school is essential.

The children will need red, black or white shorts and a white T-shirt for P.E. and games.  P.E. lessons in the hall are usually done in bare feet, but trainers are required for outdoor lessons.  Please ensure your child is provided with suitable kit.  We have a studs only earring rule at Broom Barns.  It is a county health and safety rule that jewellery is NEVER worn whilst doing physical activities. Children will be requested to remove earrings or they will be required to wear tape over earrings – Parents/Carers may be asked to provide tape.

Since many of the areas are carpeted, children are expected to have indoor shoes (plimsolls) to change into on arrival at school. Black slip-on plimsolls are ideal. A drawstring shoe bag to keep them in would be most helpful. A shoe bag is available for sale from the school office.
