Parents

Uniform

Every child is expected to wear school uniform. Details of prices and sizes of Bayford school jupmers and t-shirts are available from the school office (ties may also be purchased at the office) and the other garments are available from School Trends. Other items are generally available from the normal shops or large retail clothing outlets.

Children will require separate footwear for P.E. (and break time if they want to play football etc). Children are not permitted to wear boots or trainers as part of their school uniform.

Jewellery and hairstyles

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery, nail varnish or make-up in school. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs or sleepers in pierced ears, watches, and small objects of religious significance. We ask the children to either remove these objects during P.E., or cover them with a plaster (as appropriate), to prevent them from causing injury.

All long hair should be tied back during P.E. lessons. The school does not permit children to have extreme haircuts, styles or accessories that could serve as a distraction to themselves and/or the other children. For this reason children are not allowed to wear hair gel or hair spray to school or bring hair gel or hair spray into school.

Footwear

The school wants children to grow into healthy adults. We believe it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles, high heels, thin straps or are backless, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. We also do not allow children to wear trainers indoors during the school day as it is not healthy for their feet. We require all children to wear shoes as stated in the uniform list.

During break and lunchtimes Key Stage 1 & 2 children should change into outdoor footwear (e.g. trainers, wellies).

Physical Education
