It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.
Aims and objectives
Our policy is based on the notion that school uniform:
This policy has been updated to transition between the old and new Bromstone School uniform. Current pupils in the school are permitted to wear the old uniform, but the school encourages families to choose uniform from the new list when replacing items.
Our uniform for new entrants to the school is:
Our previous uniform is:
Grey jumpers of any kind, are not part of our uniform.
The only jewellery items permitted to be worn in school are earring studs in pierced ears. We ask the children to remove earrings during PE and games to prevent them from causing injury. With newly pierced ears, earrings will need to be covered by tape (provided by parents).
The school does not permit children to have ‘extreme’ haircuts or elaborately coloured hair. This includes (but is not limited to): shaved-in patterns, gelled ‘spikes’ or ‘Mohicans’, clip-in hair extensions, coloured streaks.
The school believes that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. Neither do we allow children to wear trainers to school, other than for PE, as they are not in keeping with the smart appearance of our school uniform. Open-toed sandals are not allowed as they can cause injury when playing in the playground. Plain, black boots can be worn in extreme weather conditions (i.e. snow).
Children may wear a blue, black or white sunhat in hot/sunny weather. This should be plain or with the Bromstone logo. Head scarves in school colours (i.e. a Hijab) may be worn for religious reasons.
The school does not specify the colour or style of coats and other outerwear, but requests that parents choose practical, dark colours and dress their children appropriately, according to the weather conditions. Navy blue reversible fleece jackets with the School logo are available.
School uniform with our School Logo can be purchased from:-
The Schoolwear Centre, 56 Addington Street, Margate. Telephone 01843 293555.
All uniform items should be named with permanent marker or sew/iron-on labels.
