The wearing of school uniform plays a vital role in contributing to the ethos of Broomgrove Junior School. It helps to inspire pride in the School, support positive behaviour and discipline and helps support effective teaching and learning. Children are expected to be smartly presented during the course of the day and to take pride in their appearance at all times. All items of clothing must be clearly marked with your child’s name.
The school prohibits the use of make-up, nail varnish and the wearing of jewellery other than stud-earrings and watches – both of which must be removed by your child for PE activities.All children with long hair must have it tied back at all times. No vibrant hair colourings, cut in motifs, or patterns to hair styles are permitted. All hair accessories must be plain and coloured blue, yellow or black.
