Uniform

East Barnet School Uniform

Uniform is a particularly important part of being a student at East Barnet School. It should be worn correctly and with pride.

All students are ambassadors for the school and the way in which the uniform is worn should reflect our high standards and positive expectations. Our school uniform creates a sense of community cohesion, formality, and professionalism. The uniform and rules about appearance are non-negotiable.

Cost of Uniform

East Barnet School has a duty to make sure that the uniform we require is affordable, in line with statutory guidance from the Department for Education on the cost of school uniform.  

We understand that items with distinctive characteristics (such as branded items, or items that must have a school logo or a unique fabric/colour/design) cannot be purchased from a wide range of retailers and that requiring many such items limits parents’ ability to ‘shop around’ for a low price. 

We will make sure our uniform: 

  • Is available at a reasonable cost  
  • Provides the best value for money for parents/carers
