At Barnabas Oley we take great pride in our uniform. Its distinctive colour and logo has been worn for over 40 years. We strongly encourage all children to wear correct uniform to school. The wearing of our uniform gives pupils a sense of ‘belonging' and helps to foster pride in the school.
We have recently reviewed our school uniform and have added a number of optional items that you may wish to consider purchasing. These include polo shirts with embroidered school logo, fleece jackets, track suits for use in outdoor PE lessons, a sports t-shirt for children in years 3-6 and royal blue PE shorts. Samples of our uniform products can be seen in the school office.
White shirts or polo shirts, grey socks and grey trousers.
A royal blue jumper or school sweatshirt.
Black school shoes (no trainers).
White blouse or polo shirt grey skirt, trousers or pinafore dress, white socks/grey tights.
A royal blue jumper or school sweatshirt/cardigan.
During the summer – blue and white cotton dress, white socks.
Black school shoes (no fashion shoes or trainers).
PE and Swimming
All classes will have PE as part of their weekly timetable. The children are expected to change for this and will need:
Trainers for outdoor games
Royal Blue shorts
Tracksuit trousers and jacket or jumper for outdoor PE
Please provide a PE bag with a drawstring top for this kit.
Jewellery can be dangerous and therefore should not be worn. Children with pierced ears may, however, wear plain studs. These need to be removed for PE lessons.
Swimming costumes will be required by all children during the Summer Term, along with a large towel.
In the winter, children may wear a tracksuit or sweatshirt for outdoor games. All these activities are part of a normal curriculum and all children are expected to take part. If, however, your child cannot participate because of medical or other reasons, please inform the school in writing.
All children will require a suitable overall or apron for painting and other craftwork. An old shirt would be fine but please reduce the length of the sleeves!
It is very important that all clothing is clearly marked with the owner's name. See Name Labels below.
