Existing parents/carers will be aware of our updated branding of the school to match our aspirations for the students and the role our school plays in their development and preparations for their next steps
We are excited for the future of Bromfords School and the plans we have but we are also acutely aware of the timeline that parents face when purchasing uniform ahead of September and the pressures we all face with the current increased cost of living. After lengthy discussions with our current uniform supplier and governors we have made the following decisions.
- The updated branding of the school will be in place from September 2022 across the school site, website and all forms of communication from the school.
- We will be introducing an updated school tie for all students at no cost to current parents in September 2022. The tie will be issued as a one-time swap for students’ existing ties. From this point, ties that need replacing or are lost will need to be purchased by parents as is the case now. More details will follow towards the end of term.
- Our existing contract and supply chain with our current uniform suppliers means that there will be no further changes to the uniform list as published on our website for September 2022. This should, however, give parents/carers the time and confidence to ensure students are in the correct uniform for September.
The school is also committed to reducing the cost of school uniform for parents and in turn, meet the government’s objective for this to be in place for September 2023. Whilst factors outside of our control mean that we have only been able to make minimal changes for September 2022, we are already looking at options to significantly reduce the cost of uniform for September 2023. The new school badge will therefore also feature as part of this uniform relaunch, supporting our parents/carers by reducing the financial outlay whilst maintaining the high standards of uniform that we expect of our school community.
We will keep you updated every step of the way.
