School uniform policy 2017/18

Context

At Bromsgrove, we believe that a uniform instills pride in the school and allows each student to feel part of the wider Bromsgrove family. Students are expected to wear the prescribed uniform correctly every school day between 0700 and 1530, except on specific designated days.

In practice

The School Shop at Windsor Park Campus is the first port of call for uniform and school supplies. It provides a quality uniform to all Bromsgrove students at both sites. The School Shop is open 7.30 a.m. to 8.00 a.m., 10.10 to 10.30 a.m. and 3.30 p.m. to 4.00 p.m., Monday to Friday. It is advisable for parents of students requiring full uniform, or those with a substantial list of items, to make an appointment by telephoning the School office.

Parents of Bromsgrove Early Years School may order their uniform requirements from the Early Years Office, for next day delivery.

Arrival to and from school must be in full school uniform: it is not acceptable to arrive in PE kit if you have PE that day. We believe that commonly accepted standards of modesty and neatness will ensure appropriate and non-offensive student dress in an international school setting.

Please note the following key points/guidelines:

  • Skirts/Skorts should be knee-length throughout the school, including in the Sixth Form.
  • There should be no extreme of hairstyle or colour. Hair should be smart and of the same length across the head i.e.  no shaved and long parts together is acceptable. If requested by the school, a student will modify their hairstyle or colour if the Headmaster deems the style/colour to be against our guidelines.
  • No hair length should fall below the shirt collar for boys.
  • Students will tie their hair back as requested by teachers, for example in practical Science lessons.
  • Girls should only wear a plain, narrow ‘alice-band’ type hair band. Hair bands should not be of a wide material bandana style, or in bright colours, or have any additional parts sticking out of the top.
  • No make-up is permitted for any student across the whole school.
  • Students are permitted to wear a watch and one pair of small sleeper or stud type earrings.
  • Necklaces must be worn underneath the uniform and must be removed for PE and sports ECAs (for health and safety reasons).
  • No other jewelry is permitted at anytime.
  • All EY and Primary students must wear a cap when outside at playtime, lunchtime and during PE lessons and ECAs/clubs. Please note that if your child does not have a hat they will not be allowed to take part in the activities outside.
  • We also strongly encourage Secondary students to do the same for sun safety reasons.
