The official school uniform is a white polo shirt with a maroon sweatshirt or cardigan and a grey skirt or trousers. In the summer children may wear red checked dresses.
The polo shirts and sweatshirts/cardigans, embroidered with the school badge can be obtained through Emblematic on (0191) 2701449 www.emblematic.co.uk or via the Parents section of our school website.
Footwear should be black shoes. During extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rain or snow, children may come to school in appropriate footwear. However, they will then be expected to change into their school shoes upon arrival.
Pupils will require a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers for PE. A bathing costume or swimming shorts and a towel will also be needed when pupils in key stage 2 have swimming lessons.
To avoid accidents the wearing of jewellery (including badges) is not permitted. If a child does wear earrings small stud earrings only must be worn and a letter from parents accepting responsibility must be brought to school. It is advisable not to have ears pierced during term time. Body piercing is not allowed.
Governors assume that in choosing a school that promotes school uniform, parents will support the staff when the policy is enforced.
