Uniform Policy

 

We are a Rights Respecting School.

As parents you have the right to choose which school your child attends. Once you have chosen that school you and your child have the responsibility to follow the rules and guidelines of the school .

Rules ensure everybody understands their rights and responsibilities.

BMS primary & junior high has a Home School Agreement which informs every one of their rights and responsibilities.


Uniform policy

Our Uniform Policy aims to:

  • Make expectations clear
  • Inform you of the sanctions in place

As a school we believe our smart uniform promotes unity and gives a sense of identity. Our uniform encourages a neat and tidy appearance which enables our pupils to feel good about themselves and take pride in their school.

All uniforms are to purchased from the school, under no circumstance would uniforms sewn elsewhere be permitted.


Label your uniform

Please ensure that all uniforms and PE kits are named – children have a knack of misplacing their belongings!

Most items of uniform can be obtained from the school office. Orders may be place for additional requirements. All uniforms are to purchase from the school office. Uniforms sewn or obtained elsewhere would not be accepted and children found wearing such uniforms would be asked not to wear the outfit and parents summoned to the office.

 

Foot wear

School shoes should be appropriate, flat and black. Trainers are only permitted on Thursdays for the Primary and Fridays for pre-school all to be worn with plain white socks.

 

Unsuitable Footwear

  • Boots
  • Other coloured shoes apart from black
  • Sandals
  • Slippers/flip flops
  • Shoes with heels

 

Hair styles

Just as we expect children to dress appropriately for school, we also expect them to adopt suitable, age appropriate hairstyle.

We actively discourage extreme hairstyles as they do not complement our school uniform.

  • No Hair coloring/ dying
  • No scrolls or tramlines
  • No shaven heads
  • No rat tails and logos
  • No gel or other products
  • No fashionable hair bands or brightly colored accessories
  • No beads in plaits

Boys should wear their hair in descent, neat and age appropriate cuts and girls in corn row all pulled back or in a pony.

 

Parental Support

  • Please parents, do not feel you have to give in to your child’s demands to look like their TV, pop or sport idols. There are plenty of ways to express individuality without resorting to fashionable hairstyles.
  • School is not a fashion parade, and we would rather not have the distraction of extreme hairstyles or fashionable clothes except on themed days.

 

Thank you for your support.
