uniform

Students are expected to wear the BNPS school uniform and should be neat and clean. The wearing of a school uniform offers the following advantages:

  • It’s practical, neat and attractive.
  • Avoids the need to wear everyday clothing and therefore is more cost effective for families.
  • Encourages students to identify with our school and creates a sense of belonging.
  • Greatly increases children's health and safety in school grounds and on excursions.
  • Discourages negative and/or competitive social attitudes, behaviour and dress code.
  • Fosters ‘SunSmart’ awareness.
  • Allows for easy identification of BNPS students by adults.

For safety and hygiene reasons:

  • Children are NOT permitted to wear thongs. School shoes or runners are suitable footwear.
  • We advise students with long hair to neatly tie it back to avoid possible accidents and potential of spreading head lice.
  • Elaborate jewellery is not permitted during school hours. A watch and small stud like earrings are acceptable.

Hats

All children are required to wear broad brimmed bottle green hats for protection from the sun from September until the end of April - the school enforces a ‘No hat, no play’ policy. See BNPS SunSmart Policy.

School Bag

Students are expected to use a bottle green school bag with the BNPS school crest every day to transport their belongings to and from school. This bag has been deemed ergonomically suitable for children’s backs and posture. Having a standard school bag removes the possibility of diversification and competitiveness with children bringing alternate brand name bags to school.

Excursion/Library bag

BNPS excursion/library bags are lightweight, water-resistant, collapsible bags featuring the school crest. They are great for swimming, sports, and field trips.

The Librarians also strongly encourage the use of these bags (or any other protective bag) for book borrowing purposes.

Art Smock

Students are required to wear protective outerwear over their school uniform during art lessons. The Uniform Shop has sourced a very good quality brand of art smock however you may use any variation of smock to protect student’s clothing.

Art smocks are sent along on the first day of school and will remain at school in preparation for Art classes. Art smocks will be sent home at the end of the term/year for washing. Please remember to clearly label your child’s art smock with their first and last name.

Year 6 Bomber Jacket

Children in Year 6 purchase a special bomber jacket from the Uniform Shop to wear for their final year at Primary School. The jacket is printed with all the Year 6 children’s names, teachers and the school year.

Beanie

Red polar fleece beanie (100% polyester) with BNPS school crest.

Hair Tie

Fabric button hair tie (green and white check) with quality elastic.

Rain jackets

Waterproof, breathable, light weight, 100% seam sealed, durable polyester fabric rain jacket that packs into side pocket. Available in green.

Washing

All uniform items come with washing instructions. We encourage you to follow these instructions as suppliers refuse to refund money for any garment not washed accordingly.  In particular, most manufacturers advise against tumble drying.

Labelling

ALL school uniform items should be clearly labelled with your child’s name, including school hats, bags and shoes so that items can be returned. A labelling kit is available for purchase for the Uniform Shop.
