School Uniform

We expect all pupils at Bentfield to wear the appropriate school uniform. This is based on the belief that a uniform:

  • is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos
  • promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • helps pupils develop a feeling of belonging
  • is practical and distinctive
  • identifies the children with the school
  • is not distracting in class (as fashion clothing might be)
  • makes children feel more equal to one another in terms of appearance
  • reflects a sense of community

 

Pupils in classes from Reception age to Year 6 wear the following:

  • Red sweat shirt or cardigan
  • White polo t-shirt
  • Black or grey school trousers or skirt
  • Black sensible shoes (these are to be plain without coloured logos; black trainers are acceptable)
  • In warmer weather a red gingham dress or grey shorts may be worn
  • In addition to these items we also request that pupils have a red bookbag

 

The uniform for P.E. is as follows:

  • White or red polo t-shirt or t-shirt
  • Black shorts (and black tracksuit bottoms for colder weather)
  • Plimsolls or trainers with non-marking soles (as the pupils increase in age and take part in a greater range of sports, trainers would be the preferred option)
  • In addition to these items will also request that pupils have a P.E. bag

 

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.
