We believe our newly introduced uniform, which became compulsory from September 2017, helps us build pride in our school, enhances the school’s reputation and makes our children stand out as smart, proud and confident members of the community.
The DFE guidance does not require Governing Bodies to carry out documented market research. However, in accordance with the DFE guidance, cost considerations and value for money have been given the highest priority by the Governing Body in considering the changes to the existing school uniform. As part of this, the Governing Body have agreed two suppliers.
The named suppliers are: –
8-10 Richardson Road
Stockton-On-Tees, TS18 3LJ
Tel: 01642 674973
Motif8 Embroidery & Print Ltd
17 Stephenson Street, Thornaby, TS17 6AL
Tel: 01642 601501
The Governing Body believe that the use of two suppliers will keep the cost price competitive and, most importantly, affordable for all families. With affordability in mind, the Governing Body have also kept the number of requested items of clothing to an absolute minimum. These are:
- School Jumper or Cardigan with Embroidered logo
Tie (Full or elasticated)
Blazers and other logoed items are available but are not compulsory.
PE Polo Shirt with Embroidered logo
Parents/carers may then choose to purchase the remaining items as before, from local supermarkets and other high street stores.
Black school type shoes
Girls Gingham Dress – Blue (Summer)
The introduction of the logoed PE top is in response to comments previously made by parents, grandparents and teachers regarding the “smartness” of our children when representing the school at previous sporting events/sports days.
Only the logoed polo shirt is a requirement. Shorts can be purchased from any other store but must be plain white or black.
The school has also purchased ‘school hoodies’ to be worn by children representing the school in external events.
Details of EYFS Uniform
EYFS have the option to wear a more relaxed version of the new uniform if they wish. The children in Nursery and Reception may wear a white polo shirt, grey elasticated school trousers/skirts with the school jumper/cardigan.
