Fawbert & Barnard's Primary School

Learning for Life

Uniform

It is the policy of the school that the pupils should wear school uniform.  We are proud of our school and the feeling of family identity that we have.  Not only does a school uniform give a smart appearance, it adds to that sense of corporate identity.  

All items, plain and those with the school logo are usually available to purchase from the following (please click on the red links):

Top Form in the Stow, Harlow 
UES - My Clothing / Price List / Poster / website

Navy tracksuit with school logo optional
Plimsolls (for inside activities) and trainers (for outside activities)

Please ensure that each article of clothing is clearly marked with your child’s name.

Classes have some physical activity most days, so suitable clothing should always be at school preferably in a named PE bag. A PE bag with the school logo can be purchased from the previously mentioned shop.  The bag should be taken home at least every half term so that the kit can be washed.

Sporting Fixtures and Events

The school is securing several kits for our sporting events and items of clothing will be lent to pupils.  This will involve signing out the kit and then signing it back once it has been washed and returned.

We hope that by using a school kit the children will arrive at events looking smart and consistent and will be provided to be representing Fawbert & Barnard’s Primary School.

Extremes of haircut/hairstyle and unsuitable shoes or the wearing of boots are not permitted.  Long hair should be tied back using items as noted above.

JEWELLERY

No jewellery is permitted during the school day.  It is not necessary and is easily lost or broken, causing distress or possible injury.  So please, no earrings, studs, rings, signet rings or chains.

Any child entering school with jewellery of any kind will be asked to remove it.  The piercing of ears should be scheduled for the beginning of the summer holidays to enable them to heal in time so they can be removed before returning in September. 

Children are permitted to wear a watch during the day, but this needs to be removed for PE lessons and is the child's responsibility to store it safely in their bag.

PENCIL CASES

Children from Y2 may bring a sensible-sized pencil case to school.  Please do not send gel pens.

DAY BAGS

A sensible sized bag may be brought to school.  Our cloakrooms are small and there is not enough space for large rucksacks.  A book bag should be sufficient.  Again, these can be purchased from Top Form.

PERSONAL PROPERTY

The school does not accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal property of pupils.  Parents are advised to make their own insurance arrangements to cover loss or damage.

LOST PROPERTY

All lost property is placed in the cupboard in the school hall foyer.  You can look in here every day between 8:45-9:00 am and 3:00-3:30 pm to reclaim any lost item.  Any unclaimed and unmarked articles will then be disposed of into the school’s recycling system.
