Standards of Uniform

At Bowling Park, we are successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. An important part of this is having the correct uniform and PE kit. Whilst it has been fantastic to see our students arrive dressed smartly in their uniform, I must stress the importance of all students abiding by our uniform policy the expectations for how they present themselves in school. Please see the reminders below.

If there are any particular issues around uniform, such as certain items are yet to arrive or indeed any other issues, please contact your child’s form tutor in the first instance.

Please Note: 

- Your child/ren may come dressed in their PE clothing on the days they have PE lessons. There is no need to bring their school uniform in a bag as they will remain in their PE kits for the entire day. 

- If your child brings in a packed lunch, water will be provided in school and they do not need to bring in any drinks from home.

they would like to wear uniform, children can follow the same guidelines as the rest of

school (see above).


For health and safety reasons we do not allow children to wear jewellery. 

If children have pierced ears, a small pair of plain studs may be worn. These must be removed for PE; please remove them before school if your child is unable to do this independently. No other piercings are allowed.

their uniform choices, where necessary.
