In conjunction with the standard school uniform, below are some added details to take into consideration.  It is also recommended that all uniforms are labeled with your child's name to avoid mix ups.

Shoes: Sensible black leather shoes (Foundation Stage 1 & 2 exempt) or closed toe sandals, preferable without laces for the younger children.  F1 & F2 should wear sensible shoes or closed toe sandals to aid the growth and development of small feet. 

Socks: White, black or grey ankle high socks.

Hair: Long hair should be tied back with a red or maroon soft hair band. No bandana style head bands or hair accessories which include hard bobbles are to be worn.  

Hats: Children should always wear school hats when they are outside to protect them from the sun. BIS has a 'no hat - no play' policy.

PE Kit/Swimming:  From Foundation Stage 3 upwards, children must change into their PE or Swimming kit for any physical activity. They require sports shoes for outdoor PE activities. Children will change back into their school uniform after PE or Swimming.

Secondary students are expected to present in a professional and tidy fashion and show respect for their appearance and pride in their appearance.  Other items to note are:

Sweater: Only school sweaters may be worn.

Hair: Should be neat, clean and of a natural colour. No extremes are permitted.

Make-up and/or nail varnish: This is not allowed.
