The Edward Betham CofE Primary School is a school uniform school. All children are expected to dress smartly for school and have the correct P.E. kit.
We place importance and value on our school uniform both as a mark of pride in the school and as positive identification within our local community. Our uniform promotes a sense of equality and belonging. We expect pupils to wear the correct uniform at all times during the school day, on school trips and when representing the school at extra-curricular events.
The school colours are red, grey and white.

It is vital that all clothes and belongings are clearly named. This means that mislaid articles can be returned to the owner without delay. Other items of Infant or Junior lost property are put into the two Welfare rooms. Lost property is displayed towards the end of each term and unclaimed articles are disposed of after a period of time.
The wearing of jewellery is not permitted other than a wristwatch. Pupils with pierced ears may only wear plain gold stud earrings (one per ear lobe). Other forms of body piercing jewellery are not permitted.
Parents/carers whose children are required to wear jewellery (e.g. bangle) for religious reasons should provide a note informing the school of this requirement.
All jewellery must be removed or secured for P.E. lessons.
Pupils may not wear make-up to school including nail varnish on fingernails/toenails.
Long hair must be tied back throughout the school day. Hairbands should be simple (without attachments, e.g. no bows) and in school colours (red, grey, black). Pupils are not permitted to have markings shaved into haircuts nor have ‘extreme’ haircuts (e.g. mohicans).
