Uniform Information

All pupils attending Francis Baily are expected to wear the full school uniform, as detailed below. It’s an important part of our school identity that ensures our pupils feel part of a team and take a pride in their appearance. Please help us to achieve these standards by ensuring that your child comes to school correctly dressed each day.

 

Main School Uniform

  • White or Bottle Green polo shirt with or without the school logo
  • Bottle Green round neck sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo
  • Grey tailored trousers (not cargo style, jersey material or jeans style trousers), grey skirt, grey pinafore dress or grey tailored shorts
  • Grey, black or green tights
  • White or grey socks
  • Black school shoes - Sensible shoes of a simple conventional style

 

PE Uniform

House Colours: Air - White; Earth - Green; Fire - Red; Water - Blue

  • Francis Baily house colour T-shirt (the only logo to be on this is the school logo)
  • Black sweatshirt with or without the school logo
  • Black joggers with or without the school logo
  • Black shorts or black sports leggings (plain)
  • Black hoodie (plain)
  • Gym shoes or trainers

For all the items above there is the option for the items to be with or without the school logo but there should be no other logo present on the items (trainers are exempt from this).

For sports and PE; all piercings should be removed or covered, watches removed and long hair should be tied back.

 

General Rules

 

Shoes

All children should be wearing sensible, flat, black shoes rather than boots or trainers. Foundation remain the only year group able to wear trainers. Children who do not have the correct shoes will be provided with plimsoles to wear for the school day.

 

Hair

Hair should be of a natural colour and all children with longer hair should have it tied back. This helps to stop the spread of head lice and allows children to be able to read and write without having to push their hair out of their eyes. We have hairbands in all classrooms so if they have been unable to tie their hair back before school, they can do so in the classroom.

Children should not wear any big hair accessories. Any headwear or hair accessories worn should be dark green, black, grey or white.

 

Jewellery

Children who wear earrings should be wearing small studs only. This is really important for health and safety reasons. The only other item of jewellery allowed is a watch (smart watches not permitted).

Earrings should not be worn on PE days and for swimming lessons. We will provide earring tape for children who are unable to remove studs for PE.

 

PE Kit

children will be expected to bring their PE kit into school at the beginning of the term and the PE kit will stay on their peg for the half term, going home at the end of term to be cleaned. For older children we understand they may want their PE kit to be washed more frequently but we expect PE kit to be in school everyday.

Children attending morning or afternoon sports clubs will need to change in school at the end or beginning of the session. If your child is representing the school at a sporting fixture, they should wear their uniform to school and will be given time to change into their kit before the event.

I would also like to remind parents that PE kits should either have the school logo on or be plain. No other logo should be visible. The shorts, leggings, tracksuit bottoms, sweatshirts or hoodies should be plain black. Alternatively, children can wear their green school jumper or cardigan.

 

Summer Term

A green and white gingham summer dress may be worn.

 

Green Fleeces (with the school logo on)

These must be worn as an outside jacket and not as a replacement for a jumper.

 

Foundation Year

The same as the main school uniform, with the option of trainers with velcro fastenings for outdoor wear.

 

Coats
All children should bring a coat to school every day. This is especially important during the winter months

 

Not Permitted

Makeup, nail varnish and temporary tattoos are not permitted to be worn in school.

 

NOTE: All the above clothing and equipment should be clearly labelled with your child's name.

 

Fashion and availability of items from the High Street change rapidly and it is not possible to cater for every possibility with our uniform policy. Therefore, the school reserves the right to decide what is and what is not allowed.

 

 

Stockists

Our branded school uniform is available from the following stockists:

Skoolkit:  40 East Street, Parkway, Newbury RG14 1AY

Inks Personalized: 18a The Broadway, Thatcham RG19 3HX (inside Sweet Imagination)

 

Plain black clothing suitable for PE along with non-branded main school uniform items are available cheaply from many supermarkets and high street stores.

 

 

Second Hand Uniform

Our PTA operate a second-hand uniform shop. From May to end of July 2024, the uniform shop will be open every Wednesday from 3:20pm in the Green Shed by the Foundation Building. Every item purchased face-to-face is 50p.
