Bingley Grammar School

School UniformUniform

Our school uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the overall ethos of Bingley Grammar School.

Aims:
• To instill pride and identity.
• To support positive behaviour and discipline.
• To ensure that all pupils regardless of race or background feel welcome.
• To protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way.
• School uniform supports effective teaching and learning.

This uniform is to be worn at all times at school and on the journeys to and from school. Items are available from Whittakers Schoolwear in Shipley and Keighley, and Rawcliffe’s in Bradford.

If a student comes to school in incorrect uniform replacements where possible will be offered and must be worn for that day. You will also be informed via letter or phone call. In extreme cases we may have to send your son/daughter home, however, you would be notified of this. There may also be occasion where students repeatedly wearing the incorrect uniform are placed in isolation - again parent/carers will be informed.

If for any reason you need support with this please contact the Student Support Team so we can work with you to overcome this and ensure your son/daughter does not receive a sanction unnecessarily.

The Shipley Area School Uniform Bank may also be able to help families with their uniform needs: Shipley Area School Uniform Bank >>
