*trainers may be worn if pupils are taking part in sporting activities at lunchtime. We recommend that all pupils keep their PE kit in school all the time and take it home at the holidays to be washed.

Pupils may not wear jewellery with the exception of one pair of stud earrings and watches. Swain House Primary accommodates exceptions to the above statement for recognised religious reasons in accordance with guidance from Bradford Council. Requests for exceptions should be made in writing. Jewellery, if worn for religious reasons, and watches will need to be removed for PE. Stud earrings may be kept in for PE with written permission from parents.

Pupils may not wear false nails for school. Pupils may not wear make-up for school.

Pumps and Shoes
Pumps and shoes should be kept in pump bags if clean and dry. If they are wet store them tidily under the cloakroom bench.

All pupils are expected to wear full school uniform. Clothing must be clearly marked with your child’s name. Baseball cap/hats may not be worn in the classroom. Sweatshirts with the school logo may be purchased at the school office.

The Salvation Army runs a uniform clothing bank in Shipley to help provide parents/carers with affordable school uniforms second-hand. The bank collects school uniforms for around 40 local schools, including Swain House Primary School, as well as PE kits, brand new underwear and socks and other essentials, such as stationery, school bags, lunch bags.
