Beechwood Uniform Expectations
All uniforms can be ordered via the My Clothing or Skoolkit link on our website home page (bottom of page) where you can find a full list and order form. Our expectations are:
- Grey or black trousers or skirts
- White shirt or polo shirt
- Red cardigan, jumper or fleece
- Red and white gingham summer dress for girls
- Black or grey smart summer shorts (boys or girls)
- Sensible shoes or trainers in a plain dark colour
All children must change their clothes for PE as this is a very important hygiene and health and safety issue. They must bring in their own PE kit, in a clearly marked bag. This should include a t-shirt in their team colours or a plain white shirt (NO LOGOS including football logos please), black shorts and trainers or plimsolls. Please ensure you check the size of plimsolls regularly as children grow out of them quite quickly. In winter months, they should add a pair of dark tracksuit bottoms and a fleece. The office spend a great deal of the week trying to find PE kit for pupils who have forgotten it, so please ensure your child takes their PE kit into school on the first day back after a holiday and brings it home to wash at the end of the half term.
Hoodies are not to be worn into school for any reason. If they are bought into school, they will be kept in the office until the end of the day. If necessary, we will provide a jacket or warm jumper instead for the day.
Whilst we are happy for girls to wear shorts, please ensure that these are of a sensible length and appropriate for the age of the children. We would expect shorts to be just above the knee length. Leggings are not a suitable substitute for trousers and therefore should only be worn under skirts or dresses. Tights should be red, grey, black or white only.
Children should not be wearing jewellery into school except stud earrings and a watch. Jewellery worn for religious reasons is of course an exception. Make-up and nail varnish should also not be worn during the school day. If a girl has make up or nail varnish on they will be asked to remove it in the medical room where we keep a supply of face wipes and nail varnish remover pads.
Please ensure that long hair is tied back or kept tidy with a hair band. We also ask that children do not have patterns shaved into their hair and that hair is kept to a sensible length, e.g. no mohawks.
