At Newton we have thought carefully about our school uniform and have chosen it because it is comfortable and practical for primary aged children and affordable for families. The sweatshirt/cardigan is the only part of the school uniform that requires the school logo, which means that many other items can be purchased in supermarkets and children’s clothes shops.
White polo shirt, plain or with school logo
Black or dark grey trousers
Dark coloured socks
Sensible black school shoes
In the summer months, boys can wear:
Black or dark grey shorts instead of trousers
In the summer months girls can wear:
*School bags, Book bags, Gym bags and accessories are available to purchase through school but are entirely optional. We do ask however, that children carry equipment in a small, sensible bag rather than plastic carrier bags.
During the summer months we ask all parents to ensure that their child brings a hat to school and also has applied sunscreen before coming to school.
Hats/Hair Coverings: Children may not wear hats, caps, handkerchiefs, bandanas, scarves, or other head coverings indoors at school. Exceptions can be made for religious and/or medical reasons.
Hair: Hair should be neat, brushed and tied back if long –for both girls and boys. It should not have tramlines, dyed elements, Mohicans or similar.
Piercings: Earrings if worn must only be small studs and either be removed by the child or left at home on PE days. Facial piercings are not permitted.
Necklaces/Chains/Watches: Necklaces and chains are not permitted. Watches can be worn, but must be removed by the child for sporting activities.
Feet: We like the children to wear sensible flat shoes or black trainers. It is advisable that the children bring Wellington boots on snowy or very wet days, as we like to be able to go out in all weathers. Heeled shoes are not acceptable.
Hands/Nails/Make up: Children may not wear bracelets armbands, or multiple rings. Nails should be free of any artificial enhancements or colour. Make up is not permitted.
Non-Uniform Days: A non-uniform day allows a child to express his/her individuality through their attire. The expectation is for the child to wear garments that fit appropriately and are non-offensive. Any article of clothing that is deemed inappropriate for a non-uniform day, will result in the child being required to change. Sometimes for school trips other clothing is requested, please consider appropriateness for the weather conditions expected.
Health and Safety: For safety reasons jewellery must not be worn in school. Only watches and stud earrings may be worn if necessary but they must be removed for P.E. lessons by your child. If your child has recently had their ears pierced, then they will need to cover their ears for PE sessions. We also ask that you sign a form so that your child is allowed to use surgical tape.
