School uniform

School uniform

We expect all of our children to wear our school uniform at all times as it helps to create a sense of identity and community while protecting them from social pressures to dress in a particular way. We are proud of our logo and wearing school uniform helps reinforce our sense of pride in, and belonging to, Bathampton Primary School.

Items which carry the school logo – sweatshirts, PE shirts, book bags and PE kit bags – are essential to our Bathampton school uniform.

School sweatshirts, PE shirts, PE bags and book bags may all be purchased from our supplier, Michael Hope, who is based in Bathampton. You can order and pay for the items online and they will be delivered to your child in school, free of charge. The uniform website is: http://michaelhope.co.uk and search for Bathampton school.

The remaining items of our uniform are available at many retailers and supermarkets, such as white polo shirts; grey or black tailored trousers, shorts, pinafores and skirts; navy cotton PE shorts; and blue checked dresses for the summer.

In the event of financial hardship, where purchasing uniform becomes problematic, discreet support may be possible by arrangement with the head teacher. Please contact the school to make an appointment.

All clothes should be clearly labelled with the child’s name.

Other kit

Bags and rucksacks
All children up to and including Year 4 will need a school book bag, which will be stored in the classroom during the school day. We would be grateful if other rucksacks and bags were brought only where necessary (e.g. when bringing in packed lunch or if cycling) as our cloakrooms are not large.
