The idea of how we attribute characteristics and behaviours to people based on their appearance is a theme that has come up in lots of class discussions about story book characters but is also a relevant one for our school community.
Students at BISS Puxi wear a uniform which immediately identifies them as being part of our school community. It also immediately associates them with the high standards of behaviour and social graces that BISS Puxi promotes and expects of all our students. We place great emphasis on educating and encouraging students to develop good manners and respectful and polite behaviour. When a student wears their uniform, in school or in the wider community, they are ambassadors for school and we regularly get positive feedback from school visitors and school trip venues on the commendable behaviour and manners of the children.
We want all the children to be proud to wear the BISS Puxi uniform but this requires them to act in an appropriate way and also to pay attention to their appearance, to show respect to the values of the school community that they belong to. We therefore ask that parents support their children in coming to school wearing only uniform that conforms to school guidance and to be smartly turned out. The teachers will be giving prompts to children and parents that might need a little gentle reminding of this from time to time!
Thanks for your continued support.
