Uniform Information


We consider the wearing of uniform to be very important. It provides our students with an identity, it helps promote a purposeful approach learning and it demonstrates a commitment to what we call The Birchwood Way. Our strict and consistent approach is appreciated by students, parents and carers. Indeed students, parents and carers have worked hard with us to ensure that the uniform is of a high standard and appropriate to the requirements of modern-day education. There is an expectation that all members of our School will strive to look their best. For students, this will mean wearing The Birchwood Junior School uniform correctly when travelling to, from and within the school and when on trips and visits. 

Extreme haircuts (as decided by The Birchwood Junior School) are not acceptable, and hair must be a natural colour. With all aspects of uniform, if you are uncertain about a specific issue, please ask for our advice. We want to work with you to ensure that all uniform expectations are met with a high standard.


We have set out in the uniform in formation section very specific requirements for uniform in terms of colour and style. Uniform Direct is where we source our uniform from. Uniform Direct These can be sourced from the main uniform suppliers. If you are unsure, we are happy to help.
