PE Kit Guidelines
You may remember that we introduced the skirts and trousers which hold the school emblem for pupils, to challenge the short skirts and skin-tight trousers that some supermarkets sell as ‘school uniform’. I appreciate that the cost of living is high and that there are ever increasing demands on incomes. In the light of the current challenges faced by us all, it has been decided that from September the branded items are optional. However, I reiterate that the same expectations of uniform are in place. We have plenty of spare, new and clean uniform which we can loan to pupils who do not follow the uniform policy.  Please note that we do not accept any designer, branded alternatives to our uniform. If in any doubt while making decisions about what to buy for your child, please contact postbox@barrbeaconschool.co.uk and we will be happy to help.
