Our School Uniform at Bowker Vale


All of our children are expected to wear a school uniform, as this fosters an identity, belonging and pride of our school.

Children are to wear blue school sweatshirts or cardigans, a white polo t-shirt and black or grey trousers, shorts, skirts or pinafore.

We expect children to wear black school shoes or trainers.

Wearing jewellery is not allowed, with the exception of stud earrings, a Kara and watches – which must be removed for PE.

Long hair should be tied back without fashion accessories (bobbles and clips are acceptable).


For PE, children should wear a blue logo t-shirt (provided for every child by school fund this year), black shorts/leggings and either black trainers (not pumps) or bare feet (indoors). All clothes should be clearly labelled. We end up with so many items in lost property that aren't labelled!


For swimming, children should wear: -

Boys – a pair of traditional swimming trunks. No Bermuda or long shorts.

Girls – a one piece swimming costume (no bikinis)

Swimming hats must be worn by boys and girls.


Uniform is available from Ziggy’s School Wear North City Shopping Centre, 20, Lee Rd, Manchester M9 4DH.


Please note that we also have lots of good quality, second hand uniforms available to any of you.

Mrs Heald or the office staff can help, please just call in.
