School uniform

Dress Code

 

All children in our school wear school uniform. It is a grey skirt/dress or trousers/shorts, a light blue polo shirt and a navy-blue school sweatshirt/cardigan, grey, black or white socks / tights and black shoes. The sweatshirts and polo shirts are available from the supplier “Emblematic” who have online ordering facilities and a traditional retail shop located on the North Tyne Industrial Estate opposite ASDA. On-line orders can be made at www.emblematic.co.uk/schools/holystone-primary.html .

Emblematic also supply a PE kit of navy-blue shorts, light blue T-shirt and black sand shoes. The trousers and skirts can be obtained from a variety of sources including ASDA.

Year 5 & 6 pupils wear a tie with a v-neck version of the sweatshirt, which is obtained from Emblematic. Year 5 & 6 pupils also have an alternative optional PE kit available to them – which has proved very popular – supplied by “LogoCo” – www.logo-co.com. Parents are asked to label all their children’s clothing as items can easily go missing – using name tapes, a permanent marker or a fabric pen.

The dress code requires parents to ensure that their children do not have hair which is coloured, patterned, shaved or dyed in any way. This would include colours outside the normal range, bleached or patterned hair.  Should longer hair need to be held or tied back, plain blue black, brown or clear hairbands, clips or bobbles can be worn.

For safety reasons we do not allow the wearing of jewellery and makeup, other than watches and items that have religious significance. From September 2018 we have operated a no ear-ring policy in school for pupils. If you wish to have your child's ears pierced, please do so at the start of the summer holidays so earrings can be removed on their return to school.
