We have school uniform and encourage you to choose from the available items when buying your child’s clothing for school. School fleeces, lightweight coats, sweatshirts and PE kits are all available to buy-on-line or ordered through the school office at reasonable prices and come in a range of sizes. Ties and reading book bags can only purchased from the school office.
The uniform consists of:
black or grey trousers/skirts/pinafore dresses
sensible shoes should be worn at all times, no flip-flops or high heels
In addition to daily dress the children require an appropriate PE Kit.
This consists of:
warm tracksuit or something similar to wear when the weather is cold
trainers will be worn for outdoor sporting activities and these must not be worn during the day as normal footwear. These should be in a named bag and ideally kept at school all week
Benwick Primary School fully endorses the principle that school uniform should be affordable for everyone, ensuring that no student or family is socially excluded through inability to buy. Accordingly all uniform can be bought ‘off the peg’ from any high street outlet. It is also school policy to supply our most needy families with good quality second hand uniform at no cost, if required. Order forms can be found in the yellow pockets in reception area of the school office.
For Swimming children will need a one-piece costume or trunks (no Bermuda shorts) and a towel. No spray deodorants to be used as this may affect children with asthma.
Jewellery: No Jewellery should be worn with the exception of a wristwatch and stud earrings. Please note that earrings should be removed or taped for PE and swimming - staff are unable to assist with this.
