Thank you to everyone who ensures that their child follows the school dress code – it is very much appreciated. This uniform was agreed following consultation with parents in Summer 2013. Therefore, it is expected that all children will wear the appropriate clothing and footwear in school.
School Dress Code
Our School Dress Code is an important way of maintaining standards. Wearing school uniform also reflects that pupils are part of the school community and helps to create a sense of belonging.
The school uniform comprises:
- Navy jumper with ‘Bedwas Junior School’.
- White polo-shirt.
- Grey trousers for boys/girls. Girls may wear grey skirts also. Blue and white checked dresses may be worn in the summer months.
- Dark coloured shoes. Black trainers which are designed to look like shoes are acceptable. However, no other colour other than black is allowed on the trainer. Parents will be contacted if children are not wearing appropriate footwear. In addition, boots are not acceptable unless there is severe weather.
- Dark or grey coloured socks
Please note: Jogging trousers of any description are not part of everyday school uniform (The only exception being for P.E. lessons in colder weather).
In the interest of hygiene, it is important that children should have a complete change of clothing for P.E. lessons. They also require plimsolls or trainers. Parents are asked to purchase a plain white t-shirt for P.E. alongside the rest of the school uniform. Pupils will require shorts for the summer months. It is recommended that a suitable jumper is provided for P.E. activities in colder weather.
Please ensure that every item of clothing is marked with your child’s name!
It is school policy that children should NOT wear jewellery, with the exception of:
– ONE pair of small studs
– A watch (with close fitting strap)
As with other personal items brought to school, we cannot guarantee the safety of jewellery and any item of value should be left at home.
Rings and earrings can cause terrible injuries to the wearers and to other children involved with them at playtimes and in P.E. lessons. Because of this, rings and earrings which protrude in any way (e.g. large diamante stud earrings) must NOT be worn in school.
Pupils must not wear hairstyles deemed by the school to be ‘extreme’. Hair must be neat and tidy, and pupils with long hair (boys or girls) are expected to tie hair back.
Hair must not be dyed an unnatural colour.
Hair bands and ‘bobbles’ should be dark or blue in colour. Brightly coloured scarves are not permitted.
