School Uniform

St. Bartholomew’s children wear their smart and distinctive uniform with pride. The Governors adopted a revised uniform policy in September 2020 and a link to that policy can be found below. The policy gives clear and simple guidelines for parents and children about what to wear in school. Uniform can be purchased locally and is easily available from Example School Uniform Barrow Upon Soar and can be ordered online at Example School Uniform or by visiting their shop also from Rosebuddies Ltd via their website Rosebuddies School Uniform  or at their stall at Loughborough market.
