Uniform

At Buckingham Park Primary School, we are proud to be members of our school community and we want all our children to feel part of our community and to represent our school. Wearing the school uniform helps us to do this. Children are expected to wear uniform:

  • Jumper: royal blue sweatshirt/cardigan with logo
  • Top: pale blue short sleeved polo shirt
  • Trousers/skirt/shorts: black
  • Summer dress: pale blue/white check
  • Shoes: black shoes (no heels)
  • Black, white or grey socks/tights (footless tights and leggings are not permitted)
  • PE: children should wear a navy blue t-shirt and black shorts and black tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirt for outdoor /winter lessons , trainers or plimsolls.

Other essential items: Your child will also need a book bags, a PE bags, a hat in the summer and a water bottles.

All uniform can be purchased from the school office and some items may be purchased via Tesco online.

 To reduce lost property, please clearly mark all clothing, bags, bottles etc with your child’s full name so that found items can be returned to their rightful owner. There is a lost property box in the main office area of the school.

We do not accept responsibility for any loss or damage to an individual’s property.

Hair

Long hair should be tied back (this is so that it does not distract from learning and for hygiene reasons).

Hairstyles should not be attention seeking e.g. extreme styles such as sculptured names/symbols, Mohicans, gelled or dyed hair are neither appropriate nor acceptable for children of primary school age.

Jewellery and make-up

Items that are absolutely required by a religion are allowed. Other jewellery is limited to a watch and plain ear studs earrings (no more than 4mm wide).

Local authority advisors recommend no earrings are worn for PE; however, we allow small studs but only at the risk of the wearer. Earrings will be taped over unless the wearer can remove them themselves. We do not allow children to wear make-up or nail varnish in school.

Religious requirements and race equality

We follow local authority advice in such matters. Sikhs are traditionally required to wear a bangle and boys to cover their hair, which is left uncut, secured in a topknot or turban. Where safety is an issue, pupils will be asked to tape bangles to the skin or wear a sweatband. Muslim girls may wear the hijab.
