Below is a list of items needed for school uniform, in preparation for your child’s start at Beech Grove school.
Our Policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
- promotes a sense of pride in the school
- is practical and smart
- identifies the children with the school
- prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class
- is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money
- is designed with health and safety in mind.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in school. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears.
The school does not permit children to have dyed hair or extreme hairstyles including patterns cut into hair that could serve as a distraction to other children.
Nail Varnish and Make-up
Nail varnish and make-up are not permitted.
The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. Platform shoes and high heels are dangerous and not allowed; children must be able to be active during the school day. Shoes and closed toe sandals (not open toe please) are smarter and preferable to trainers. Footwear must be black or navy.
