School Uniform Information
We wear our St Barnabas’ Blue uniform with pride, See below for details.
All children from Foundation Stage to Year 6 are expected to wear school uniform.
The St Barnabas’ uniform has been chosen so that it is reasonably inexpensive to purchase and easy to obtain. We want our children to look smart and to wear their uniform with pride. A high standard of appearance is usually an indication of good discipline, self-awareness, and responsibility. These are points which we believe it is important to emphasise to our children. The uniform consists of:
Pale blue polo shirt
Royal blue sweatshirt with school badge (Red sweatshirts for Y6)
Grey trousers (Shorts in Summer or through choice in Winter)
Grey or black socks
Smart school shoes (black – not trainers)
Pale blue polo shirt
Royal blue sweatshirt or cardigan with school badge
Grey skirt, pinafore dress or trousers (Or royal blue and white checked dress in Summer)
Grey or white socks or grey tights
Black smart school shoes (no trainers)
Navy blue shorts
House colour PE T-shirt
Pumps or trainers for outdoor PE
Plain tracksuit bottoms or leggings may be worn during the colder weather.
Our Year 6 children are proud to wear red sweatshirts – they are buddies to our younger children and ambassadors for the school
Sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts, PE T-shirts and book bags with our new school logo can all be purchased by local uniform providers:
- Snazzy’s, Bridge Street, Darwen
- Grays Schoolwear, Northgate, Blackburn
- Whittakers Schoolwear, Church Street,Blackburn
Watches may be worn, but the school cannot accept responsibility for any damage or loss that may occur.
For safety reasons, the wearing of jewellery is not allowed. We recommend that ear piercing should take place at the beginning of the summer holiday so allowing time for healing. During PE or Games lessons watches must be removed.
Hair accessories should be small and school colours- royal blue. No large bows please. Hair should be tied back if it is longer than shoulder length. We like our children to look smart at all times so please avoid extreme hair cuts such as lines, patterns or colours.
All clothing should be clearly labelled, and outdoor coats should have strong loops so that they can be hung safely on pegs. Coats without a loop for hanging tend to end up on the floor, or on the wrong peg. A clearly named draw-string bag should be provided so that PE kits can be kept safely. Bags should be of a reasonable size so that they are easy to store and don’t block corridors.
