At Bruche, we believe school uniform plays a key part in the ethos of our school. All children are required to wear our uniform which is bright, smart and practical.
Uniform is important because it gives our children a sense of identity and belonging. It promotes a common purpose and fosters a feeling of pride in the school. Uniform prepares our pupils for a world of work and responsibility, therefore helping to develop strong work ethics.
We have chosen our particular items with affordability in mind, ensuring that all pieces are considered value for money and durable. We have worked closely with our school community to ensure that our uniform costs do not strain family budgets, with all items easily available from a wide choice of local retailers.
Uniform also makes it easier for us to identify our pupils as they come into school and move around the site. It allows the community around us to recognise our pupils too.
Whole school please note:
- Jewellery must not be worn for school. There is the danger of loss or breakage, and a very real risk of injury, especially with earrings. Children who have pierced ears should only wear a small stud if absolutely necessary.
- We believe there is no need for children to have mobile phones whilst in school. However, we do appreciate that many children own a mobile phone and some parents may want their children to have one with them if they are walking home alone or attending an after school club. If you allow your child to bring their phone to school it will remain their responsibility and must be handed in to the school office at the start of each day.
- Parents are asked to note that the school does not accept any responsibility for loss of, or damage to, personal property whilst on the Authority's premises, and we would therefore advise that all clothing and footwear be clearly marked with the pupil's name.
- Long hair should be tied back at all times.
- For health and safety reasons, footwear should be dark in colour with a heel of no more than 2cm. Trainers are not acceptable for everyday wear; there are sound health and hygiene reasons for not wearing trainers all day. The wearing of trainers can lead to competition between pupils and detract from the aims we are trying to achieve through our uniform policy.

Please provide spare clothes for your child in your Bruche draw string bag. These can be left in school, for use should your child need them.
