All pupils are expected to wear the school uniform correctly. By wearing the uniform a pupil is endorsing his or her pride in being a member of Ysgol Bryn Elian. The uniform has been set and agreed by the Governors. (See Welsh Assembly guidance "School Uniform").


“Designer” fashion wear is not acceptable; all items should be in plain colours without insignia or 'designer' labels.


Footwear must be safe for our many steps and banks, and for working in laboratories and technology workshops. Denim, black jeans or chinos are not acceptable for school wear.


Extreme hairstyles and colourings are not acceptable.


It is essential that all clothing and footwear worn for P. E. is different from that worn during the rest of the day, and is in line with the school's P.E kit requirements.


The uniform should be worn throughout each school day, during journeys to and from school and for other formal school events as required. Pupils in Years 12 and 13 are expected to adhere to a form of uniform, which has been negotiated with them. The uniform should be worn properly at all times. Denim clothing is not acceptable as school wear. Trainers are suitable only for sports. Parents of girls are particularly warned of the danger of pupils wearing high-heeled shoes on the site. Girls should not wear short skirts.


We look for the support of parents in ensuring that pupils adhere to our uniform regulations.


From time to time fashions among pupils emerge which are inappropriate with school uniform. Make up or nail varnish is not allowed nor are showy hair ornaments. We hope that pupils will draw attention to themselves through good work and behaviour rather than their conspicuous appearance.


If for some unavoidable reason a pupil is temporarily unable to wear an item of uniform a note must be brought from a parent or guardian, to carry during the day to explain the unorthodox clothing.
