Dressing Smart at BISS Puxi

01 September 2016

One of the nice things about returning in August is seeing the children dressed so smartly in their new uniforms. 

  • Primary Assembly

The colour teal is abundant in our classrooms and playgrounds; much in evidence at the moment as the weather is good and the jumpers and coats still at home.

Being smart in uniform is important to us at BISS Puxi.  For younger children it is a real mark of how grown up they have become.  I can imagine how excited our Reception children were when they first put it on and the many photographs that must have been taken.   As the children get older wearing a uniform is a great ‘leveller’ and avoids the competition factor where children compete to have ‘coolest’ gear.  Many parents are relieved at this as it avoids the arguments in the morning about what is suitable and what is not – I remember them well!

But for us uniform is all about having a shared identity and a sense of belonging to the school.  We view the school as a big extended international family where we all care and support each other.  It is so nice to see in classes, in the playground and all around the school children of different nationalities who can look so different but are united by having the same uniform.  I am always pleased also to see our children in the local community, instantly recognisable in their uniform as belonging to BISS Puxi family.  They are great representatives of our school both in the smart way they look and how they behave. 

Please support us by making sure that your child is dressed according to our guidance.  This is available on Page 42 of the Primary Parent Handbook, which has lots of useful information, on our website.

Please remember in particular that children should have black shoes; we seem to have a lot of variety of colour at the moment, and girls should minimise their use of jewellery and hair accessories.   Thank you, as ever, for your support!
