Uniform

St Stephen’s School uniform colours are green, yellow and grey. All pupils are expected to wear uniform unless, for example, they are going on a residential visit. It is essential that all items brought to school are named.

The recommended uniform is as follows:

  • Long or short grey trousers
  • Grey skirt, tunic or culottes
  • Green and white checked dress in warmer months
  • Long or short-sleeved yellow polo shirt
  • Bottle green pullover or school sweatshirt
  • Grey, black, green or white socks or tights
  • Black shoes

PE/Games (Indoor): white T-shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/trainers

PE/Games (Outdoor): as above, with black sweatshirt and optional tracksuit bottoms (or school tracksuit), for cold weather, and plimsolls/trainers

PE Swimming (Year 3 - Year 5): one-piece swimsuit, swimming cap (necessary if hair is worn long) and a towel

Items which have the school logo embroidered on to them can be bought through Michael Hope, a uniform supplier based in Bathampton (Tel: 01225 464648).

Uniform can be ordered either online at www.michaelhope.co.uk or over the phone with a credit/debit card.

Uniform will be delivered to the school and can either be picked up from reception (new parents), or will be sent home with your child.

Pupils are not required to wear uniform bearing the school logo, however it is preferred.

Approved school sun hats, PE bags and reading bags are available direct from the school office.

Second-hand uniform

There are second-hand uniform sales several times a year. These events are advertised in the school newsletter. Items for donation are always needed, as long as they are in good condition; please bring any donations in a bag to the school office. All proceeds go towards PTFA fundraising.

Lost Property

Please name ALL your child’s belongings so that they can be returned to the child’s classroom.

Lost (unnamed) property is placed in the medical room. Children are regularly reminded to check for lost items. All items are periodically displayed on a table at playtime/lunchtimes. We regret that unclaimed lost property will be disposed of as a great deal of property is not named and is never claimed. 

Jewellery

  • One pair of stud earrings
  • Wrist watch  (watches must be removed for physical education)

The school cannot take responsibility for the loss of valuables.

Mobile Phones

Many children near the top of the school have their own mobile phone. We do not ban mobiles because they are a very useful safety device, especially for children who travel to and from school alone or without adult supervision. They are also helpful in linking up with parents for collection from clubs and so on. If a child brings a mobile phone to school, as long as phones are turned off throughout the school day.

There is a security issue with phones and this must remain the child’s responsibility. Whilst we take every care to ensure all property is safe and secure, they remain the child’s responsibility.
