Our Uniform

At Bushmead we believe that the wearing of a school uniform encourages pride in the school and helps children feel like they belong to the school community.  We ask parents to support us in ensuring that all children come to school dressed appropriately, to ensure fairness and comply with Health and Safety. 

No logos, stripes, brand names or pictures please on any uniform - particularly PE.

From September children will be rewarded for wearing the correct uniform with house points. If they are not wearing the correct clothes a note will be sent home. Please make sure you buy the correct uniform.

Uniform for Reception

As you will be aware, the uniform at Bushmead for our new Reception children is changing from September 2022.  Our curriculum is designed for the children to be learning through physically active lessons, and every day your child will be taking part in a range of tasks including running, yoga, climbing, bike/scooter riding and exploring the outdoors. We believe that the new uniform is more practical and will allow all of our pupils to participate comfortably.

  • White polo shirt
  • Plain red sweatshirt
  • Black/white trainers
  • Black or white socks

  • Black shorts

General Information for all

  • It is essential that all items of clothing, shoes and bags are clearly marked with your child's name.
  • Children are required to bring a plastic water bottle (filled only with water).
  • For safety reasons, jewellery is not permitted except for a watch (no Fit Bits or Smart Tech) and one stud earring in each earlobe.  Watches and earrings must be removed for PE (if you plan to have your child's ears pierced please consider when you do so, so there is enough time for them to be removed for these activities).
  • Hair should be modest in style and a natural colour.  Small, 'school colour' hairbands, beads and bows can be worn.
  • Long hair should be tied back.
  • No make-up or nail polish.
  • Children should not bring in valuable items.  If money is required then it should be given to the class teacher or school office in the morning.
  • Mobile phones are not allowed.  If there is a need for a child to bring a phone please contact the school office to make arrangements.
