Our school uniform requirements demonstrate the school values of ‘Ambition and Excellence for All’. Students are expected to maintain our excellent uniform standards at all times, including their travel to and from school when they represent The Birkenhead Park School in the community.

EQUALITY ISSUES

BPS is keen to support those students who identify as transgender, non-binary or gender fluid, and our uniform policy reflects our commitment to inclusion. Although we refer to boys’ and girls’ uniform we are happy to discuss the individual needs of a student if required.

 

If in doubt over any aspect of uniform, please contact the school to seek clarification.

Full school uniform will be worn by all of our children every day, children not in school uniform will have to remedy any uniform breach before being permitted into school. Should any breach of uniform not be corrected then the school will treat this as a disciplinary matter.

 

Wirral Fuss

Wirral FUSS (Free Uniform for Secondary School) are a local organisation that recycles good quality uniforms to supply secondary school students with the necessary items of clothing they need for school, for free.

Since 2012 they've helped distribute school uniform and PE kits to over 5,000 families, without judgement of family circumstances and reducing the volume of textile landfill.

If you would like to use their services or donate spare items of school uniform. please head to www.wirralfuss.co.uk for more details.
