School Uniform

Uniform

We encourage all of our children to take a pride in their appearance and to ensure they make every effort to look smart and tidy in their uniform.

You can order school uniform with our logo from Fosters Schoolwear Limited at www.greatforschool.co.uk or www.tesco.com/ues

Uniform without a logo can be purchased from any high street chain or at school monthly, from our local supplier, Mrs Parrish.  Full information on how to order uniform can be found in the registration pack.

The School Association run a second hand uniform shop on a Friday where most items can be bought at just £1.  School bags for reading books, homework and music, as well as school ties and   water bottles can be purchased through the school office.

Every child in KS1 and KS2 needs a named overall for Art and Craft work.  An old adult shirt with the arms cut shorter and elasticised at the wrists is ideal.

All clothing and belongings, including shoes, need to be clearly labelled, it is amazing what ends up in lost property!  Named items can be returned to your child immediately.  We keep unnamed items for a short period of term as space is limited and inform parents when we are going to have a clear out so that you can check if anything belongs to your child.

 

Change to School PE Kit from September 2017 

 

At Northgate, we pride ourselves in our appearance and we would like our school PE kit to uphold our values. As of September 2017, we expect children to wear the following PE kit: 

· Plain white t-shirt (with or without the Northgate emblem) 

· Plain bottle green PE shorts 

· Plain bottle green hoody (with or without the Northgate emblem) 

· Plain bottle green joggers 

These items can be purchased from Fosters School Wear or local high street stores such as Marks & Spencer, Asda and Tesco. If your child has outgrown PE kit over the spring term and you are about to buy new PE kit, children may start wearing items from the new kit list.
