School Uniform

At Bitterne Manor we aim to foster a feeling of community within our school. We prefer all children to wear school uniform. We believe that it is smart, gives the school an identity and gives the child a sense of belonging. We believe that both staff and pupils should dress appropriately for the activities they are undertaking.


Our school uniform is bottle green, grey and white as follows:

Shirts and blouses


Trousers or shorts

If you are in receipt of certain benefits you may be entitled to free clothing. Please call into the school office for more details.


Dress Code:

The safety of our children is our first priority.  Therefore, pupils with pierced ears may wear one pair of plain gold studs, but not sleepers or pendant earrings. Pupils may also wear a watch. Pupils wearing any other forms of jewellery will be asked to remove it. The local authority advises that all jewellery must be removed for PE. It would therefore be helpful if pupils who wear stud earrings do not wear them on days when they have PE, or provide tape to cover them up. The school is unable to provide tape. If your child wears jewellery for religious reasons, would you please let us know in writing. School staff will accept no responsibility for the safe keeping of watches or jewellery. We suggest that shoulder length or long hair is tied up or plaited to keep it tidy and to reduce the risk of headlice. You should also tie hair up for PE and Games lessons.

PE Sessions:


During PE it is important for reasons of hygiene and safety that pupils have a change of clothing. Pupils are required to bring:

  • trainers or plimsoles,
  • a white or green T-shirt
  • a pair of black shorts or leotard in a named drawstring bag (which can be purchased from the school office).


Children will also need to bring tracksuits to wear for outdoor games in cold weather. For swimming (currently in Year Five), each child will need a towel and a costume. We ask parents not to send their children to school wearing:

  • unsuitable shoes, e.g. high heels or flip flops
  • make up, nail varnish, or excessive amounts of hair gel
  • jewellery, including rings, necklaces, bracelets and body piercings.


We ask parents to name all items of clothing so that we can return lost property easily. Unfortunately clothing becomes mislaid if it is not labelled appropriately.
