At Bishop Chavasse school, every member of our school community is encouraged to feel valued and respected, and all persons are treated fairly. We believe a school uniform is important in building pupils’ sense of identity and belonging to the community of the school. It instils a sense of pride in their school, promotes the ethos of the school, and supports positive behaviour. By creating a common identity amongst all pupils, regardless of background, a school uniform acts as a social leveller, protecting pupils from social pressures whatever their race, religion, gender or background. It can reduce potential bullying and peer pressure to wear the latest fashions and expensive clothing.
We have updated our school uniform policy to include the latest statutory guidance.
We have a smart, but simple school uniform which the children wear with pride; just as we have high expectations of pupil conduct, we have high expectations that children wear their school uniform and look smart.
In Reception we recognise that many children will have just mastered getting themselves dressed. Therefore, the uniform in Year R is a little different to the rest of the school.
From Year 1 onwards, the uniform changes to include a tie for boys and girls and details can be found in our uniform policy.
all children take part in P.E and will require a PE kit to be kept in school. Details can be found in our uniform policy.
