Smart Children – Smart Uniform

02 maart 2017

The weather has been improving over recent days and there is a feeling that Spring might shortly be in the air.  Coats are being discarded again, and as we are half way through the school year, it is a good time to remind ourselves of the importance of school uniform which is so much part of our identity here at BISS Puxi.

  • Primary

We believe that school uniform is an important feature of our school.  When children wear uniform they are identifying themselves as part of our school community and that is a community that they, and we, are all proud to belong to.  This instils a sense of belonging and also security in the children; they are, in simplistic terms, all recognisable members of the same team.

But we also recognise that our uniform is a great ‘leveller’; that fashions and expensive clothes do not make any one child feel superior to another.  Furthermore, in some small way, it is also preparing children for an adult world of work where they may be required to wear a uniform.

As a parent myself, I remember that school uniform made my life easier.  School clothes were standard and had to be worn, and that saved many arguments as my children grew up.   It avoided the ‘You are not going out in that!’ debate of the adolescent years; many of you may be familiar with this already - if not, you will be, trust me!

But most of all our uniform identifies us as a British school, which we are proud to be.  It shows that we recognise the importance of first impressions, and care about how we look.  And the implicit messages given are ones of high standards in education, in behaviour, in manners and of course in appearance.

Details of our dress code are available on the website

 Please support us by reading them again carefully, paying particular attention to the requirements of shoes, leggings (which should only be worn by Early Years and children in Y1 and Y2 if dark and then only on swimming days), hair and jewellery.

We are a smart school and proud of our smart children.  Please support us in this.
