The Newlands Uniform
We have a school uniform at Newlands which we require children to wear at all times. The uniform is practical and comfortable and gives the children a sense of belonging to the school.
Throughout May and June 2022 our school council held a consultation regarding proposed changes to our school uniform.
These changes were prompted in the first instance by the rising costs of living we are all facing and the Government's statutory guidance on the cost of school uniforms which was published in November 2021.
Following this process changes were made to our uniform which are outlined in the letter below.
The Newlands Uniform (this will be the standard uniform from September 2024)
Dark grey trousers, shorts or skirt
Newlands branded maroon school jumper or cardigan
White polo shirt
Optional- red and white gingham summer dress
White, grey or black tights or socks
Our P.E Kit
Black shorts and/or tracksuit bottoms
Newlands branded house t-shirt (or plain coloured t-shirt)
Optional- Newlands branded maroon hooded sweatshirt
With the exception of our jumpers/cardigans, PE t-shirts and optional hoodies our uniform can be purchased from high street stores.
Our branded school uniform is available to purchase from the Schoolwear Centre, Brigade Clothing or via our Nearly New second hand uniform shop.
Alongside our school uniform it is expected that children will only wear one set of small stud earrings if they have pierced ears, which will need to be removed or covered for pe lessons- our staff cannot do this for the children.
During term-time pupils are asked not to have fashion hairstyles which include: dyed or streaked hair, shaved patterns, mohawks, lines and tramlines. Coloured hair braids, tinsels and feathers should not be worn.
Long hair (below shoulder length) should be tied back. Hair accessories should be minimal, plain and in school colours. Hair should be kept out of children’s eyes using headbands, clips and slides; again plain using school colours.
