The children lead active lives in school and therefore it is recommended that practical and sensible clothes and black shoes (not open-toed sandals or long boots) are worn. For this reason the Governors expect that school uniform will be worn by all children, giving them a sense of communal identity along with some practical advantages.
Children should wear the school sweatshirt or royal blue cardigan with a blue or red (Year 6) school polo shirt and dark coloured trousers (not jeans or leggings), shorts or a skirt. Trousers should be in a traditional school style and skirts should be approximately knee-length. Only children in Year 6 wear red uniform.
In summer, dark coloured traditional school style shorts or blue or red (Year 6) checked dresses can be worn.
Other coloured shirts, jumpers and cardigans are not to be worn.
All children should wear sensible, black shoes. Children may bring a change of boots to wear outdoors during wet weather.
For P.E. all children require blue or black coloured shorts, a black school P.E. shirt and trainers in a named bag. For outdoor games, boots or trainers and a change of socks are essential, as well as dark coloured jogging bottoms and a warm top in the winter months. Long hair (boys and girls) must be tied back.
School uniform and book bags can be purchased online at www.mapac.com. This includes shorts and T-shirts required for P.E.
Second hand uniform is available from the Bourn School Association at various times during the year and often during Friday community assemblies.
During the summer we make full use of our heated outdoor swimming pool, so your child will need a costume, towel and a suitable bag. Armbands are provided by the School. It is advised that verrucae should be covered and long hair (both boys’ and girls’) must be tied back or plaited.
It is important that every item of your child’s property is named.
One particular name label producer, Stikins Labels, will make a percentage donation to the School from your order, should you wish to use them. You can find information about them on the fundraising page.
The wearing of jewellery or nail varnish in School is strongly discouraged. For safety reasons all jewellery must be removed before P.E., games and swimming lessons. As time is not available for teaching staff to supervise the removal of jewellery, no jewellery including ear studs may worn on the days when children have swimming lessons.
