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, PE bags and book 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 Box. You can order and pay for the items online and they will be delivered to your child in school, free of charge. Or they can be collected from their warehouse in Box directly if easier.
The uniform website is: http://michaelhope.co.uk. Please 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. Logos on polo shirts are optional.
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.
