School Uniform at Newlands
We believe that a school uniform is important:
It looks smart
Contributes to a sense of belonging and community
Gives a common purpose
Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
Fosters a feeling of pride
Is designed with health and safety in mind
We ask that all children wear the uniform and encourage them to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress in school.
The uniform is designed to be practical, maintainable and good value for money.
Hair accessories such as slides, ribbons bobbles, etc, should be fairly simple and if possible in school colours.
Parents are asked to ensure that all items are labelled clearly with their child’s name.
For safety reasons we ask that the children do not wear jewellery in school
For health reasons it is important that children are properly dressed for physical activity. PE kit should be named.
We have our royal blue school uniform jumpers and cardigans which are available from MACPAC, our online uniform suppliers (see link below). The rest of our uniform can be purchased from any uniform supplier or supermarkets. We ask for white or pale blue polo tops or shirts and black or grey trousers, skirts or shorts. We also allow blue and white checked school dresses.
Shoes should be black or dark in colour and practical for school - no heels!
