School Uniform
At Barrington we believe that uniform is an important part of being a member of the school community and we place a great deal of emphasis upon how smartly dressed our pupils are. Barrington is a school to be proud of and we reflect this in the appearance of all pupils.



Our school uniform is:

  • Bottle green sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo
  • White school shirt or polo shirt (with or without the school emblem)
  • Grey skirt or trousers or pinafore dress (in the summer short grey trousers or a green gingham dress may be worn).
  • White, bottle green or grey socks/tights (socks should be either ankle or knee length only).
  • Children should wear sensible plain black shoes, flat or with a 1” heel, no flip-flops, sandals, trainers, crocs, sling backs or similar styles.


Our uniform for P.E. is:

  • Bottle green shorts
  • Plain white T shirt
  • Plain bottle green sweatshirt and tracksuit bottoms
  • Black plimsolls (KS1) or trainers (KS2)


Swimming kit 

  • One piece swimming costume for girls, or swimming trunks/shorts (not knee length) for boys
  • Swimming hat (provided by Crook Log pool)
  • Towel
PE kit should be kept in a bag on the child’s peg in the cloakroom. It should be brought to school on the first day of each half term and taken home on the last day. Long hair must be tied back for PE, so it is a good idea for your child to have a hair band/scrunchy in their PE bag. Children must wear socks for PE (except gymnastics). If your child wears tights to school they need to have a spare pair of socks in their kit bags.

Please ensure that all items are clearly marked with your child’s name. If your child loses an item of clothing, please see the school office staff who will direct you to lost property.

All children require a waterproof coat in case of changeable weather. If boots are worn, your child should bring a change of footwear for use inside school. Children are allowed to change into trainers for outdoor playtimes but will be expected to change back into their school shoes before lessons commence.


Parents can purchase uniform items from our school uniform outfitters which is Boffins, 37 Pickford Lane, Bexleyheath, Kent, DA7 4QU.  You can also purchase some of the uniform at many high street retailers.




We recommend that pupils with long hair have it tied back.  We also discourage extravagant/extreme hairstyles e.g. shaved patterns in hair, brightly coloured hair bands and hair adournments.



No jewellery should be worn, although children with pierced ears may wear small gold studs (which they must be able to remove themselves for PE). From Year 2 children are allowed to wear watches to help them learn to tell the time. If you are planning on having your child’s ears pierced we ask that you do it at the beginning of the summer holidays so that they have time to heal before returning in September.

No nail varnish or temporary tattoos are allowed in school.


Protective Clothing

Children take part in arts and craft activities that can be messy. We ask that all children bring in an old shirt or art apron that can be worn over their school uniform.
