Dressed to Learn
We are committed to being a school focused on learning. Dressed to Learn for us means, that we choose clothing that is appropriate for learning in a school setting. For safety purposes, when participating in physical activities in the gym and on the playground, we ask that all students have a pair of flat, comfortable shoes that are firmly attached (laces, Velcro, buckles, etc.) to the foot.
In light of the above, the following are examples of unacceptable dress at Bridlewood School:
- Clothing with disrespectful, rude or profane slogans/words
- Belly shirts or tops with spaghetti straps
- Visible underwear
- Short shorts
- Slip-ons or platform shoes for physical activities
- Hats worn in indoor classroom settings
Parents are asked to work with their children to help them to make good choices about dressing appropriately for learning at school. Students will be respectfully asked to find suitable clothing if their dress is inappropriate.
Indoor and Outdoor Shoes
In order to keep the school clean and safe, we ask that all children keep a pair of running shoes at school for indoor use only.
These shoes should have light coloured soles. If students are unable to tie their own shoes they should have slip-ons or Velcro straps.
