Uniform and Dress Code
We aim to encourage children to feel pride and a sense of belonging to the Benwick Primary School community by wearing their uniform. The school uniform consists of:
- Plain dark green sweatshirt or sweat cardigan (available to purchase with school logo if wished);
- White polo shirt or white shirt/blouse;
- Grey/black trousers, pinafore, skirt or shorts;
- Green gingham dress in summer;
- Grey/black/white socks
- Black shoes/closed sandals
Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 should keep a pair of named wellies in school so that they can fully enjoy the outside area! We would also recommend provision of outdoor waterproof clothing particularly in Reception.
Your child should also be provided with a sun hat in warm weather and a coat that is suitable to the season everyday. It is also essential to have a waterproof coat and sensible footwear in school everyday, as we are likely to be working outdoors or to be undertaking short walks in the countryside!
- Plain white t-shirt
- Black shorts;
- Plain, dark jogging bottoms and tracksuit top - no other colour;
- Black plimsolls or white/black trainers;
- PE bag to keep it in.
We believe it is important to be comfortable and look smart at Benwick Primary School.
Make-up (including nail varnish) and jewellery should not be worn in school. No bracelets, including charity bands are to be worn in school, except the time when the school is fundraising for the charity. Plain (not coloured) studs for pierced ears are acceptable, but hoops or dangling earrings must not be worn. Watches may be worn.
Hair should be of a sensible style - shaved or coloured hair is not permitted at school. Hair beyond shoulder length must be tied back. Hair accessories should be in school colours.

Please make sure that all items of clothing and footwear worn in school are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
