School Uniform

Policy For School Uniform

We all believe that a school uniform is important for the following reasons:

  • It looks smart and gives a sense of belonging
  • It eliminates social problems caused by latest fashion fads
  • It contributes to a feeling of pride within our school

We ask that all children wear the uniform and we encourage them to maintain a good standard of clean and tidy dress in school.

Our school colour is Bottle Green in line with the Holgate Academy.

Our school uniform is as follows:

  • White/ bottle green polo shirt or white blouse/shirt (optional).
  • Bottle green jumper / sweatshirt / cardigan preferably with school logo
  • Bottle green zip up fleece preferably with school logo (for outdoor wear)
  • Black or grey skirt / pinafore / trousers
  • Dark coloured sensible leather-type sturdy shoes or boots with no more than 1 inch heels. Soft footwear is not safe or appropriate for school nor are trainers other than for outside P.E. (Please note, that even during warmer weather, sandals are not permitted).
