We encourage all of our children to wear school uniform. We believe it is practical, more economical, prevents competition in fashion wear and gives the children a sense of belonging. This policy is well supported by our parents. The uniform consists of:
- Royal blue sweatshirt/jumper/cardigan
- White shirt/blouse
- Black or grey skirt/trousers
- Black shoes/trainers
In summer girls are allowed to wear blue and white checked or striped dresses.
For health reasons we ask that all children are provided with a PE kit. This should include a plain tee shirt (light blue for Key Stage 1 and House colours for Key Stage 2), shorts and a pair of trainers and plimsoles.
Blue sweatshirts, PE tee shirts in the required colours can be ordered online.
We request that children wear sensible shoes with low heels for safety reasons.
Its is advisable to clearly name all items of clothing which are brought to school. No responsibility is accepted for the safe-keeping of personal property.
The wearing of jewellery, apart from watches, is prohibited for safety reasons, including earrings and studs.
Children are not allowed to bring mobile phones to school.
Reading folders and PE bags are available to be purchased from the School Office.

Gateshead Uniform Donation Scheme
As part of our sustainability agenda we are part of the ‘Gateshead Uniform Donation’ scheme. There will be many parents who have children growing out of their uniforms quicker than they are able to wear them out. It is hoped that the scheme may be able to relieve the financial pressures for our community.
We are asking parents to donate any of the following uniform items which are in good condition (washed):
- Jumpers, cardigans, PE Kits, House T-Shirts, Fleeces and coats (with school logo)
- Grey skirts, dresses, pinafores, trousers
- Blue summer dresses.
You may donate items to our school reception or directly to the below address.
