Uniform

We believe the way in which students wear their school uniform reflects the importance which is placed on attention to detail and pride in the school. Like other schools in the Trust, we want the smart appearance of our students to be regularly commented on by parents of prospective students and visitors to the school. Please see the Avanti Schools’ Trust’s Uniform Policy statement

Orders MUST be placed before 1st August for delivery before the start of the new academic year.

For uniform orders placed over summer, the school are providing a returns service where any items that are too big or small can be given to the school and we will organise the exchange. This will be open for a two week period (commmencing the second week of the new term), after which time we will send items back to Brigade for exchange.

Please be aware that during the busy season, Brigade require 14–21 working days to turn orders around. Therefore it is very important that parents make every effort to select the correct sized garments in the first instance. To help the ordering process, sizing samples are available at the school office for students to try on.

All returns/exchanges required after the 2 week period will need to be returned directly to Brigade using their returns policy (details will be included with your order).

Book Bags and Home School Books/Planners

Children can have a school book bag with or without our logo. This develops positive and organised attitudes to reading and being prepared for school. The book bag must be brought to school and taken home each day, along with their Home School Books.

PE Kit

Children should have clothing for Physical Education lessons. This should include blue shorts, white T-shirt and trainers. We would recommend navy blue jogging bottoms and a warm top for colder months.

Labelling Your Child’s Uniform

It is vital that all children are able to locate their own property as it facilitates early reading skills, independence and self-esteem. Please ensure that all your child’s clothing and property including shoes are clearly labelled.

An easy option is to purchase pre-printed iron-on name labels which will last throughout your child’s school years and are easily available online. If you are not purchasing pre-printed labels, then your child’s first name must be clearly handwritten with a black, permanent marker pen.

If your child loses an item of clothing at school, if found, this will be placed in lost property. Get in touch with the school if you have lost any items and we can check for you.
