We encourage all pupils at Barthol Chapel School to wear school uniform. This helps to instil a sense of pride and team spirit within our school. School uniform orders can be ordered directly from http://www.schoolwearmadeeasy.com
Throughout the year there are opportunities for parents and children to donate/swap ‘nearly new/recycled’ uniforms.
Our school uniform consists of – school sweatshirt with school logo, white/green polo shirt, dark school skirt or trousers, dark school shoes (children should not wear high heeled shoes as these cause safety concerns). We appreciate your cooperation in support of this.
With regard to safety, the wearing of jewellery (which we actively discourage) is not permitted during PE lessons. If your child (boy or girl) has pierced ears, please ensure they can remove and replace earrings by themselves. Any child wearing earrings that cannot do this will be asked to put surgical tape over them for PE lessons. (Parents should provide a named roll of surgical tape for this purpose.) Shoe string strap tops are also discouraged for safety reasons as they can catch on gym apparatus. The school requests that football team tops and designer garments are kept for home use as these can provoke conflict amongst the pupils.
In each class cloakroom the children have a space for hanging up their coats and gym bags and for storing packed lunch boxes. Each child will also have their own named tray for storing their belongings in class.
