Federated School Uniform

All children are required to wear school uniform at Balksbury Federation as it is practical, looks smart and creates a strong sense of federated identity.  The school colours are red, white and grey. 

Since 2020, in order to support families financially and also for ease of purchasing, the only item of school uniform which requires the school logo is the jumper or cardigan. If you are a family who is struggling financially in purchasing a logo sweatshirt, please talk to the Leadership Team who will be happy to offer support. Please note that our PTA also carries out several pre-loved uniform sales each year.

Balksbury Federation follows Hampshire County Health and Safety requirements for jewellery so it is discouraged and children will be asked to remove anything other than small studs or small hooped sleepers and a watch. If your child wears jewellery for religious or medical reasons, please ensure that you write to your child's school so we are aware.

Due to Health and Safety laws we request that children do not wear any kind of jewellery during PE lessons and it would be advisable if you child finds it difficult to remove earrings, that they leave them at home on the day of PE.  All jewellery removed at school will need to be kept in your child's drawer (Infant School) or locker (Junior School).  If your child wears a bracelet for religious or medical reasons (see above), please note that a sweat band must be worn over the bracelet during PE.


Please note: If your child cannot remove earrings because they are still within the time frame of not being taken out, or ears are taking longer for earrings to be comfortably removed, you must send your child to school with them taped with micropore tape (bought at a chemist).  Elastoplast or sellotape must not be used.  The federation does not keep, and, cannot provide tape for your child.



Long hair must be tied up for PE, Art, DT and Science where safety is paramount - please ensure your child has a hair tie or scrunchy in school. If children choose to wear hairbands or other hair accessories, these should be simple and plain. Children are not permitted to wear headbands with large bows or other decorations. Hair should not be coloured.


Make Up and Nail Varnish

Children are not permitted to wear make up or nail varnish whilst at school.
