Our uniform policy apples to all children from Reception to Year 6. Children in nursery may choose to wear uniform if they wish, but it is not expected.
Having a smart school uniform for all children:
- Helps to create a feeling of community
- Supports the principle of inclusion
- Is suitable and appropriate for school activities
- Promotes a sense of pride
- Avoids the distraction or pressure of fashionwear
We pride ourselves on a smart appearance in school and we politely ask that all children wear the full Burrington Church of England Primary School uniform (this includes wearing polishable black shoes, avoiding the extremes of hairstyle and refraining from wearing makeup or jewellery).
Uniform can be purchased from a variety of suppliers:
- Online via our uniform provider Price & Buckland* (items with the school logo) by following this link: www.price-buckland.co.uk
- Supermarkets, department stores etc.(for uniform without the school logo).
- Pre-loved/ second hand items are available from the school (PTA). We support sustainability through re-using uniform
Children are not required to wear uniform with a logo or emblem although may choose to do so.
*Please note that there is a small postal charge for items to be sent to a home address but items can be ordered and delivered for free to school. Items are delivered to school on the 2nd and 4th working Monday of each month.

Jewellery, makeup and hair accessories etc.
- Jewellery should not be worn to school due to health and safety concerns and the potential for loss.

- Nail varnish, transfer tattoos and makeup should not be worn
- Long hair should be tied back with plain hair ties and hairbands should also be plain (without attachments)
Please note that children in the new Reception class will be given a book bag so you do not need to purchase one.
All items of clothing should be labelled with your child’s name.
Children are asked to wear old clothes (non uniform) for forest school. This should include full rainwear (trousers and anorak or 'all in one') as we go outside in all weathers. These clothes are very likely to get very muddy on a weekly basis.
