At Dunton Bassett Primary School we believe that a school uniform is important because it:
identifies the children with the school;
promotes a sense of pride in the school;
engenders a feeling of community and belonging;
enables children to feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
is practical and smart and not distracting in class;
is regarded as suitable, and good value for money;
has been designed with health and safety in mind.
Please refer to our Uniform Policy for more details.

Children who go swimming need a towel and swimming trunks or one-piece costume (no bikinis), carried in a waterproof bag. All children require a swimming hat.
For safety reasons, children are not permitted to wear jewellery in school except stud ear rings, and jewellery worn for religious or medical reasons and/or a sensible watch.
All jewellery should be removed for PE. Earrings should be small studs ones which children can easily remove themselves. Adults are not allowed to help.
If a child needs to wear a piece of jewellery for medical or religious reasons that cannot be removed it must be covered up by the child, using their own plasters, during physical activity.
For some extra-curricular activities special kit such as shin-pads/football boots may be required.
Representing the school in sporting activities
All children in KS2 will be expected to wear school PE kit when representing the school in matches/tournaments etc.
Parents should label all items of clothing clearly with their child’s name.
