School Uniform

At Ball Green Primary School, we believe that everyone, both children and adults, should always look smart, be dressed appropriately and take pride in their appearance.  ALL Children must wear the school uniform.

In wearing the Ball Green Primary School uniform your child will demonstrate their commitment to the Ball Green community.  When wearing the school uniform, every child will act as an ambassador for our amazing school, demonstrating their right to belong, their respect for themselves, each other and the wider community, and a responsibility to be ready to learn.

Our uniform has been created so that our children always look smart and ready to learn.  However, at Ball Green Primary School, we understand that purchasing a school uniform can be expensive and this is why we have kept our logo specific items to a minimum.  Our school jumpers, cardigans, ties, blazers, beanie hats and book bags are available locally from Motif Marketing or via their website https://www.motifmarketing.co.uk.

Other items of required uniform can be purchased from a range of supermarkets and retailers at very competitive prices.

Children may wear watches. If your child does wear earrings they must be studs only and children must be able to remove the earrings themselves in order to take part in a PE lesson.

NB All children must take part in PE lessons, therefore, if your child is unable to remove their earrings you will be expected to come to the school to remove them for them in time for the PE lesson.

Children must not wear make-up, have nails painted or wear false nails.

Hair Colour:

Natural colours only. No lines, designs cut into hair. If you are unsure whether a hairstyle would be appropriate or not, come in and ask the Headteacher BEFORE having it done.
