School Uniform

At Bristol Free School the principle of a uniform is to:

•    mark the formality of being educated at Bristol Free School

•    reinforce a sense of shared membership and pride in our School felt by all members of the community

There is an expectation that the Bristol Free School uniform will be worn with pride by all students, to and from School as well as at any time when uniform is required, such as on school trips. The standards are to be rigorously enforced by staff and we expect them to be supported in a like manner by parents and carers. The Headteacher reserves the right to make a final decision about the manner in which students at BFS present themselves at School or at any school related event.
