School Uniform

School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone. It also serves to foster a feeling of ‘belonging’ to the school.  We want children to feel proud to be at Glusburn School and to be part of its uniqueness. The wearing of a uniform ensures pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome and protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; the children come to school prepared and with the right attitude for work.

You will be informed of any ‘non-uniform’ days. These will usually be linked to fund raising or charity events such as Children in Need or special events in school such as Christmas parties.


For all children:

Plain black/grey tailored ‘school’ trousers or skirt

Plain white polo shirt

Plain navy blue sweatshirt (not a hoodie/tracksuit top)

Plain black shoes (not trainers)

Blue checked school dresses may be worn in the summer as may plain black/grey tailored shorts.

Physical Education

Plain black shorts for PE and Games

Plain white t-shirt for PE and Games

Plain black pumps for indoor PE

All items should be kept in a small drawstring PE bag.

PE Kit should be in school at all times.

(Due to space restrictions in the cloakrooms children should refrain from bringing large rucksacks to school).

PE bags and book bags are available to purchase from the school office.
Children in Key Stage 2 will require suitable outdoor games kit for all weathers, including tracksuit bottoms, a warm jumper and a change into suitable outdoor footwear. Not school shoes.


In the interest of health and safety all jewellery and hard headbands must be removed for PE, Games and swimming lessons. Please consider very carefully before allowing your child to have pierced ears as these cannot be removed for six weeks after the event. This means that your child cannot take part in PE lessons. PE is a legal requirement of the National Curriculum. Jewellery must not be worn except in the case of pierced ears when one earring in each ear (or one ear) is allowed; these must be studs or sleepers. The wearing of multiple earrings in each ear is not allowed. There should be no other visible body piercings. Staff will not remove ear-rings or be responsible for looking after them.


Head scarves and other relgious head wear may be worn. These must plain black, white or navy blue and must be fastened securely.  



Anti-Bullying Week 2018

Our Anti-Bullying Ambassador Team have been involved in organising this year’s Anti-Bullying Week (12th-16th November).

Anti-Bullying Week shines a spotlight on bullying and encourages all children, teachers and parents to take action against bullying throughout the year. The theme this year is: ’Choose Respect.'


The Anti-Bullying Alliance, amongst many people, believe that bullying behaviour is a choice and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school; in their homes and communities and online.

This Anti-Bullying Week we want children to understand:

  • The definition of respect.
  • That bullying behaviour is a choice.
  • That we can respectfully disagree with each other ie we don’t have to be best friends or always agree, but we do have to respect each other.
  • That we all have to choose respect face to face and online.


During Anti-Bullying Week this year we are holding ‘Odd Socks Day’ on Monday 12th November, along with many other activities, competitions and lessons.
