School Uniform Guidance

At Newcomen Primary School, we take great pride in our uniform, which we expect all our pupils to wear.

We believe that it promotes our family identity and actively discourages discrimination and peer pressure. We are also want to ensure that our uniform is accessible and affordable to everyone.

Our school uniform consists of the following:

  • Required – Grey trousers , skirt or pinafore. Please no jeans or jogging bottoms.
  • Required – Purple sweatshirt or cardigan with or without school logo. This can be purchased from any supplier you wish.
  • Required -White polo shirt. Yellow polo shirt in Y6.
  • Required – Flat shoes; preferably black shoes or black trainers. Shoes that are brightly coloured or contain flashing lights are discouraged. High heels should not be worn for health and safety reasons.
  • The above items can be worn all year round.

Optional items include: 

  • Book bag
  • Drawstring PE bag
  • Warm weather: purple gingham dress and grey shorts.

All items of clothing should be named. Unfortunately, school can take no responsibility for lost or damaged uniform.

Please note that extreme haircuts such as excessive beading or shaven marks in hair are not appropriate for school.

PE Kit

School have provided children with their own individual PE kit to wear during lessons .Please ensure that your child has this kit in school on their PE day and it remains in school throughout the week. 

  • Please note trainers must be worn when using our Multi Use Games Area (MUGA).
  • PE kits should be kept at school for the week and go home on a Friday to be washed.
  • PE bags should be limited to drawstring styles with thin handles, which will easily fit onto the narrow pegs. We have no facility to store holdalls or backpacks and these cannot hang securely on pegs.


  • Jewellery is not allowed in school for pupils. It can be a safety hazard and if lost or damaged, causes distress.
  • Ear studs are allowed but must be removed for PE and during swimming lessons by the child. Covering with plasters is not allowed. The problem of newly pierced ears can be avoided by waiting for the summer holiday. Nose studs and other piercings are not allowed.
  • Please ensure that temporary tattoos are removed before sending your child to school.
