We expect all pupils at Bentfield to wear the appropriate school uniform. This is based on the belief that a uniform:
Pupils in classes from Reception age to Year 6 wear the following:
The uniform for P.E. is as follows:
All uniform is available with the school logo. Although it is not a requirement it is preferable, as we believe it is more in keeping with the beliefs listed above. Please ensure that all uniform is clearly labelled with your child's name. This is especially important, as uniform items look similar and can easily be confused for another child's. The school cannot accept responsibility for any lost items.
Please can we remind you that jewellery should not be worn for PE. Earrings should be removed for PE lessons as they represent a potential hazard not only to the wearer but also to other children.
Medical advice confirms that any jewellery worn in physical education lessons is an unnecessary risk and should be avoided at all times. Serious accidents have occurred as a result of contact between pupils wearing earrings or studs, thus damaging the ear, or where items of jewellery have caught in apparatus and torn the ear lobe.
Bentfield School prohibits the wearing of jewellery, earrings and ear-studs in all aspects of physical activity. Pupils are encouraged to leave items of jewellery and earrings at home on days when they have physical education lessons. Children who do wear earrings to school on PE days will be expected to remove them by themselves. Staff are unable to help with this.
