School Uniform Policy
We believe that a school uniform is an important aspect of your child’s experience at school. This belief is for a variety of reasons:
- Uniform creates equality.
- Uniform prevents damage to everyday clothes.
- Uniform is affordable and wears well.
- Uniform contributes to sense of team and belonging.
- Uniform fosters a feeling of pride and respect.
We ask all children to wear our school uniform and encourage them to maintain a very good standard of clean and tidy dress whilst in school.
Our school colours are burgundy, white and grey. Order forms for uniform and samples to try on are available from the school office
Please make pay for your uniform when you collect it. Cash or cheques made out to Bedford Borough Council only please.

PE is a vital area of the curriculum and we actively promote the benefits of exercise. In order for us to maximise the teaching and learning opportunities in our PE lessons children will come to school dressed in their PE kit on the days they have PE.
For the second half of the summer term children will require a swimming kit in school daily.
Swimming kit consists of:
a costume/trunks (no bikinis please)
flip-flops or alternative
All children must wear swimming hats when swimming as it prevents damage to our filters.
All items of swimming kit must be named.
In the summer children may continue to wear winter uniform if they so wish.
All longhair must be tied back and in neat fashion hair accessories such as slides, ribbons, scrunchies and headbands, which should be kept as simple as possible and in line with school colours.
Parents are kindly requested to ensure that all items are labelled very clearly with their child’s name.
It is absolutely imperative for safety reasons that we ask that no child wears jewellery in school with the exception of small neat stud earrings which must be removed by the child before P.E. and swimming.
