School Uniform

Bloomfield Collegiate School uniform

Introduction

We believe the school uniform teaches our pupils to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance. It helps to create our school identity a sense of belonging.

For more information, please download our School Uniform Policy from our Policy page.

Pupils are asked to pay particular attention to the regulations on skirt length and shoes. Please be aware that pupils who do not follow these regulations will be asked to replace the incorrect items of uniform. If this does not happen, the sanctions outlined in the Citizenship and Behaviour Policy will be applied.

Sports equipment and clothing must be named, carried in a sports bag and kept inside lockers. Unless special permission has been granted, sports items should only be worn during PE or Games sessions, and pupils should change into school uniform afterwards. However, should a pupil be going home directly after an extra-curricular sporting activity, she may wear either full school uniform or full PE kit. When representing the school, pupils are expected to wear regulation kit or team uniform.

Members of the PE staff will be happy to provide advice to parents about the purchase of Sports Equipment.

The heel should not exceed four centimetres measured at the back of the heel and be the full width of the shoe for the duration of the heel. Flimsy soles, kitten heels, pumps, high heels, wedges, canvas shoes, open toes and other fashion shoes are not permitted. Shoes must fit securely to the foot; in more open styles, a strap over the instep is expected.

Trainers must not be worn except for PE related activities or if granted permission to do so through use of a Uniform Pass issued by a Head of Year.
