School Uniform

All children are requested to wear school uniform in order to foster a sense of belonging and identity. Our uniform has been designed with the aim of being smart, practical and cost effective. We ask that all children wear sweatshirts or cardigans bearing the school logo.

These are available to purchase new via the Little Gems store in Sunderland or online via The School Outfit web store or preloved (free of charge or in return for a donation to PTA via the letterbox at the school office) by emailing (please state the items and sizes that you require). Please consider donating any clean preloved items to school via the basket in the main school reception.
