It's a beautiful thing when you wear a uniform that represents a group of people..... it symbolises oneness, togetherness.
A uniform binds us together as a community. Pupils at Beech Hyde are proud to wear the uniform that represents their school and visitors often comment on how well our pupils are presented. We expect all pupils to wear school uniform at all times. Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with the child’s name.
A link to School Trends, the school's supplier, can be found here.
The BHA has a second-hand uniform that can be loaned/ given to parents. It is stored in a 'Take and Donate' unit in the main entrance. If you need an item, please come and take what you need.

All pupils need at least 3 pairs of schools in school everyday:
- Outdoor Shoes - All pupils are expected to wear smart black shoes which are to be worn to and from school (and for school events etc) which are outdoor shoes (Ugg type boots, ankle boots and trainers are not suitable).

For Health and Safety reasons children should not wear jewellery, and must only wear stud earrings to school.
It is a Hertfordshire County Council Health & Safety ruling that children should not wear earrings during PE and Games. Children who wear earrings are required to remove them during PE and Games.
Extreme hairstyles are not to be worn in school. Distinctively styled hair, designs shaved into hair, hair dyed unnatural colours and shaved heads have all proven to be a distraction to learning.
Long hair should be tied back for school and especially for PE. Hairbands/clips should be grey, red or black.
Every child (from Year 1 upwards) should have an old shirt or a large overall to be worn during art/craft lessons.
