Uniform 2015–2016

Uniform and achievement have always been a high priority at Avanti House School; we believe the way in which students wear their school uniform reflects the importance which is placed on attention to detail and pride in the school. The smart appearance of our students is regularly commented on by parents of prospective students and visitors to the school.

Orders MUST be placed by Friday 7th August for delivery before the start of the new academic year.

For uniform orders placed over summer, the school are providing a returns service where any items that are too big or small can be given to the school and we will organise the exchange. This will be open for a two week period (commmencing the second week of the new term), after which time we will send items back to Brigade for exchange.

Please be aware that during the busy season, Brigade require 14–21 working days to turn orders around. Therefore it is very important that parents make every effort to select the correct sized garments in the first instance. To help the ordering process, sizing samples are available at the school office for students to try on.

All returns/exchanges required after the 2 week period will need to be returned directly to Brigade using their returns policy (details will be included with your order).

What these look like

Avanti Schools Uniform - Reception–Year 3

Book Bags and Home School Books/Planners

Children need a school book bag with our logo in the primary phase. This develops positive and organised attitudes to reading and being prepared for school. The book bag must be brought to school and taken home each day, along with their Home School Books.

 

PE Kit

Children need a change of clothing for Physical Education; this should include blue shorts, white T-shirt, black plimsols, trainers, navy blue jogging bottoms and a warm top. Learning to change out of uniform and into a PE kit is an important learning task for our younger children. It also creates a growing self-awareness of what is appropriate in different settings.

 

Labelling Your Child's Uniform

It is vital that all children are able to locate their own property as it facilitates early reading skills, independence and self-esteem. Please ensure that all your child's clothing and property including shoes are clearly labelled. Your child's name should appear in lower case letters, with the first letter of their name/surname in capitals.

The most appropriate option is to purchase pre-printed iron-on name labels which will last throughout your child's school years and are easily available online. If you are not purchasing pre-printed labels, then your child’s first name must be clearly handwritten with a black, permanent marker pen onto iron-on name labels.
