School Uniform at Sacred Heart Primary School
Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School requires that children wear school uniform. Our uniform code has been devised by the governors of the school to be a smart, common sense choice which is good value for money for parents on tight budgets.
The uniform code has been designed to give pupils a sense of togetherness and team spirit so that they can feel proud to be part of the school. There are also health and safety requirements that mean our uniform represents a safe set of clothing and footwear for busy active learners whilst ensuring that our pupils are visible and identifiable in the community – this is especially important when we are out on school trips.
Uniform can be purchased from our provider either in store – Logos Unlimited, Unit 1, Sands Industrial Estate, Swalwell, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE16 3DJ (0191 488 4300) or online via https://embroidered-school-wear.co.uk/categories/find-your-school/sacred-heart-primary

When the weather starts to get wetter and more wintery the school grounds can get very muddy very quickly. We would like all the children to use the field area all year so encourage children to bring Wellington boots into school for playtimes. Boots can be stored in a bag overnight safely. All children without outdoor footwear will not be allowed off the yard to protect our carpets. Also children will go outside in all weathers so please ensure that your child has a warm/waterproof coat, hat and scarf that are clearly labelled.
Pupils must wear closed-toed, hard-soled, all black plain shoes with a flat sole. Footwear with flashing lights are not appropriate for school. Boots are not allowed. Open-toed sandals should not be worn, even in the Summer Term. In the case of extreme weather children can wear boots to school but must change into a pair of shoes on arrival to school.
Black plimsolls must be worn for indoor PE and are available from most supermarkets at around £2.50.
Jewellery may not be worn, with the exception of a wristwatch for pupils in KS2. If you wish you child to have their ears pierced, we advise you do so at the beginning of the summer holidays to give the ears time to heal before returning to school. Staff are not able to remove or replace earrings, and we do not tape ears for PE. Nail varnish and other make up should not be worn in school please.
Fashion hair cuts are not allowed at Sacred Heart – particularly very short cuts or lines/patterns. We don’t encourage children to look different from their peers as this can lead to children’s comments that can be upsetting – please sensible haircuts only.
Please label all uniform. We cannot be held responsible for lost items of clothing etc. You can find some great items to label uniform on the following websites: www.easy2name.com www.mynametags.com and www.carehomelabelco.com
For further information about the school uniform and dress code, please contact the school.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF SMARTNESS, CORRECT FOOTWEAR AND WEARING OUR UNIFORM WITH PRIDE!
It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to provide and maintain a suitable uniform for your child. It is important that we work in partnership to maintain the highest standards for our children at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School. If a child does not come to school in the correct school uniform, we will provide that child with a suitable item of uniform to change into.
