Uniform

Rationale

The school has a uniform for the following reasons:

• the pupils come from different social economic backgrounds;

• we believe it gives a sense of identity and belonging;

• the majority of parents are strongly in favour of a uniform. We expect all of our children to wear their school uniform.

Guidelines

The uniform colours are grey and red. Most items can be bought at any store in Newcastle.

  • Red sweatshirts, cardigans, KS2 hoodies, white tee shirts and polo shirts all bearing the school crest, and red PE shorts are obtainable via the school.
  • We do keep a small supply of second hand uniform in school which is available for a small donation.
  • We ask that, in the interests of safety, children wear shoes that do not slip off their feet, do not have heels that are over 4 cms or which mark the floors.
  • School shoes should be worn, no trainers or boots. 
  • When it snows children are asked to bring a change of shoes, or to have sandshoes or trainers available in school. 

All school clothing, P.E. and swimming kit must be clearly marked with the child's name.
