Uniform

Uniform

The wearing of our school uniform easily identifies pupils as a part of the Brooklands Middle School community and is an important issue, which we feel strongly about. A school uniform does depend on the support of parents and we very much rely on your co-operation to ensure your child comes to school correctly attired.

We have, after consultation with our pupils, recently updated the style of our uniform to one which we believe the children will be both proud and eager to wear. We also consider that it is just as smart while being more practical and easier to care for.

The uniform requirements are as follows:-

Boys  

Navy Blue V-Neck Sweatshirt bearing the school logo (NOT round-neck sweaters) Plain dark grey/black trousers (NOT jeans or heavy cotton trousers) White polo shirt with a yellow band around the collar and the yellow logo on the breast (plain white polo shirts are NOT acceptable) Black Shoes – laces or slip-ons (NOT trainers or fashion shoes)

Navy blue rugby shirt with an amber band – Reversible

Navy blue shorts

Navy blue knee length games socks

It is advisable for your child to wear a hat during the summer months, although we stress this must not be worn within the building.

General Points

  •  All items of uniform must be named ·
  • Fashion clothes are not allowed ·
  • The wearing of jewellery is NOT permitted on the grounds of health and safety and security. A wristwatch may be worn and one pair of stud earrings in the earlobe only (These must be removed during Physical Education or other activities which could result in injury).

It is the child’s responsibility and not the schools to ensure these are removed and the school cannot accept any responsibility for the loss or injury caused by the wearing of any jewellery on the school premises.
