Our school uniform consists of:

During hot weather: 

  • Girls may wear blue checked summer dresses
  • Boys may wear black, navy or dark grey shorts
  • Children may wear sensible summer sandals. These should be a plain colour with suitable straps to ensure that they are secure and will not fall off the foot (no flip flops, Crocs or highly ornate sandals). Socks should also be worn with these.

PE kit

Children from Year 1 upwards should have a PE kit in school each day.

Labelled kit bag containing:

  • Trainers
  • Plain white (or St Bon's logo) white T-shirt
  • Navy blue shorts (summer months)
  • Navy blue tracksuit bottoms (winter months).

PE kit should be kept in school at all times.  Please note that if children do not have their kit in school they will not be able to take part in sporting activities.

Swimming kit 

Children in Years 2-6 attend 10 swimming sessions per academic year. These take place at Horfield Leisure Centre on Wednesday afternoons.  Children will need to have:

  • Girls - swimming costure (one piece - no bikinis please)
  • Boys - fitted swim shorts
  • Towel
  • Goggles (if children like to use them)
  • Swimming cap 

Jewellery

The following may be worn in school:

  • Plain studs or sleeper earrings
  • A religious necklace.

However, please do not wear jewellery on PE days to avoid any loss of jewellery removed at school. Earrings that have been recently pierced may be taped up during PE.

Hair

We recommend that all children with long hair wear their hair up so as to avoid "unwanted visitors"!

Lost property 

Children are encouraged to look for any lost property in the last place they had it.  All items should be clearly named to enable them to be returned to the appropriate classroom. Items which are unclaimed and unnamed will be placed in the lost property box in the atrium between Reception and Year 1.  This will be emptied regularly and all unnamed items will be given to charity.  

The school accepts no responsibility for lost items.
