We are keen for the children at our school to lead active lifestyles and so allow trainers to be worn at school. Alternatively, robust and comfortable black school shoes if preferred. Boots are permitted in bad weather but please send a second pair of shoes to change into once inside. Sandals are encouraged in the summer if they are closed toes.
Coats and Jackets
Coats and jackets should be sensible and practical in design and colour, warm, waterproof and able to be fastened.
Mobile phones are not permitted in school. If there is a specific reason one is required, please speak to the Office so arrangements can be made.
Bags and Rucksacks
Children need a book bag or equivalent-sized alternative to carry reading books and planners to and from school, and a packed lunch box. Your child's first book bag will be provided free of charge by the school.
We do not have the space on pegs or in lockers to accommodate large rucksacks or satchels, so staff may ask for these to be taken home if they exceed the space available for daily storage. Overflowing lockers and pegs are a safety hazard.
Pencil Cases are not required, as we provide all the stationery the children need. If brought to school, they will be politely returned.
(NB Nursery children only require a pair of plimsolls, which are kept in their tray)
Plain black or navy shorts, Billingborough School round neck white PE T-shirt or plain white round neck T shirt - no logos please.
Trainers or plimsolls - class teacher will advise which you need, dependent on the lessons & seasons.
White ankle socks (in winter, if children are wearing tights, please ensure socks are provided for PE).
When the weather is cold, plain black or navy tracksuit trousers may be worn for outside sport with plain trainers. At other times, they will normally be expected to remove these for the actual lesson.
If your child cannot tie laces, please provide Velcro fastening trainers
Swimming (when applicable)
One-piece suits or trunks (not baggy shorts or bikinis)
Swim caps for all children
Matches and Competitions
School team kit is loaned to children for these events
We thank you for your cooperation with obliging with our uniform requirements. We believe that a school uniform is important because it:
Where do I buy my uniform?
Our school uniform can be ordered directly online using the following link: Billingborough Primary School Uniform Shop (pbuniform-online.co.uk). From this website you will be able to order the full uniform, PE kit and additional accessories. We encourage parents to buy a jumper or cardigan for your child with the school logo, but feel welcome to purchase trousers/skirts/pinafores elsewhere if appropriate.
We regularly accept donations of pre-loved uniform so please ask at the Office if this is of interest. We also have a limited supply of cardigans and jumpers available to purchase from the school, but this is on a first come first serve basis. Please enquire with Office staff if your size is available and then make the payment through ParentPay.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
