Uniform

There is a winter and a summer uniform for all full time boys and girls. The winter uniform should be worn from the start of the academic year in September, unless the weather is particularly warm and the Head Teacher announces in writing that summer uniform may be worn. The summer uniform will be worn from the beginning of the Summer Term. The new Early Years uniform should be worn all year round in both Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten

WHEN TO WEAR GENERAL AND SPORTS UNIFORM TO AND FROM SCHOOL

Full regulation school uniform, including hat/cap, must be worn to and from school every day except for Games Days for Years 2-6 and PE lesson day (variable).

On Games and PE days, regulation sports/PE kit must be worn to and from school. For Years 2-6 this will include tracksuit trousers, zipped hoodie and trainers. For Year 1 this will include jogging trousers, sweatshirt and trainers. The cagoule should be worn in wet/windy weather, the school coat in very cold weather. Hats are not required except that the school beanie may be worn in cold weather.

Full regulation school uniform, including hat/cap, must be worn for swimming days (Tuesday), unless it is also a PE lesson day.

NB: Bangles or jewellery of any kind should not be worn at school apart from plain stud earrings for girls with pierced ears. Earrings must either be taped up or taken out for games and PE. Earrings are not permitted in ISA netball matches so we advise that ears are not pierced until the end of the spring term or in the summer so pupils can play in autumn and spring netball competitions.

Please click here for a list of all uniform items. All items can be purchased from Dolphin House, the school outfitters (details below), except those marked in italics which are only available from the School Office. Items marked in RED are specific to Broomfield and must be purchased from Dolphin House (except Early Years red socks which could also be purchased from The Shoe Station in Kew).

Arrangements for learning from 23 March

It is with regret that Broomfield House School will be partially closing from 3.30pm on Friday 20th March.  We have been open and providing our customary high quality education in school until this point but, following Government advice, we will now be fully supporting the children’s learning at home.  We have developed robust plans for this, working with our website provider and IT systems support and will be delivering age-appropriate teaching to our children and families.  We will be supporting many different ways of learning which will include text-based work, online lessons, video content and, with parental support, will be marking the children’s work and giving feedback to parents about it.  In Early Years we will also use the Tapestry system.

Developing these new ways of working and learning are exciting and we are confident that the innovations we are introducing to deal with these strange times will offer long term benefits to pupils, parents and staff alike.

We will continue to support the children of key workers at school to allow their parents to provide these critical services during the current situation.

We have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among our school community.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone well and hope you all stay safe and healthy.

With all good wishes

Mrs Susie Byers
Headteacher
