Barstable School Appearance and School Dress
School uniform is worn by all pupils at Barstable School as an integral part of school discipline and it is considered that this promotes positive attitudes, good standards and a suitable image in the eyes of the community. We ask parents to keep to the school uniform list given here when buying clothes for school.
Parents experiencing difficulty in conforming to these requirements should contact the school. A uniform shop is open weekly throughout the year. The shop will be open at the school in L Block on every Friday during term time from 10.30am to 2.00pm.
