Uniform

Click here for a summary of our uniform, and here for our full Uniform Policy.

We encourage the wearing of uniform, as we believe it promotes teamwork and a positive attitude.

Our current uniform is the result of consultations with parents, carers and children. Following a Uniform Survey in 2010, we picked royal blue (replacing grey) as our main school colour. We also held a design competition for our pupils and this resulted in our attractive new badge, with the aspirational 'Reach for the Stars' design and the powerful 'Enjoy-Respect-Achieve' strap-line. A more recent Uniform Survey has led to additional choice for parents/carers, around the colour of polo shirts and PE kit. 

There are 2 ways you can get uniform items, and the choice is entirely yours:

1. Little Gems. All uniform items are stocked, and the tops have embroidered badges. The uniform is good quality and excellent value. The Little Gems shop is on High Street West (opposite Argos) in Sunderland City Centre (telephone 5108186). Little Gems supply a lot of schools in Sunderland and across the North East.

2. If you prefer, you are free to purchase uniform from local shops and supermarkets (Asda, Tesco, M&S etc). As you know, Asda - our local store - sell good quality and great value school clothing. We sell loose iron-on badges for just £1 each.

Please note that we do not stock uniform in school, and we cannot take orders. Little Gems handle all orders (or of course you have the option of local shops & supermarkets).

Our uniform is as follows:
