School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone. Most schools in England have a school uniform or dress code, at Bourne Elsea Park we believe that to have a uniform can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils. Above all, we believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.
Our school’s uniform:
The school’s colours are red and grey and parents/carers should provide uniforms for their children, which must be selected from the list below:
PE and Games
Pupils should wear t-shirts in matching house colours with logo and navy shorts.
A plain grey sweatshirt and navy tracksuit bottoms should be worn for games during the ‘chilly’ months. Trainers must be worn for outdoor PE in all year groups and black plimsolls for indoor PE for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
As part of our PE curriculum, pupils may have the opportunity to participate in swimming lessons for which they will need a swimming costume. Please note no bikinis may be worn and shorts should be above the knee. Parents/carers will always be given plenty of notice that swimming lessons are planned.
We emphasise what is unacceptable:
Where to purchase it:
