School Uniform

School uniform is an essential part of life here at Milecastle as it not only provides a sense of belonging, but also one of unity and inclusion. It creates a sense of pride in their school for the children and allows them to feel part of the school community where everyone is treated equally.

Milecastle has a duty to make sure that the uniform we require is affordable, in line with statutory guidance from the Department for Education on the cost of school uniform.  Please note uniform does not have to display the school logo.

We require all children to wear full school uniform, including appropriate footwear in accordance with our uniform code below.

Our Uniform Code

  • Red sweatshirt or cardigan 
  • White polo shirt 
  • Black or dark grey trousers or skirt (shorts or a red pinafore dress may also be worn in the summer)
  • Black shoes (not trainers) – if you do not have the correct footwear, school sandshoes will be provided for the day

Accessories

  • Nail varnish and makeup are NOT permitted
  • No jewellery allowed including NO earrings of any kind
  • Plain hairbands and bobbles only

PE Kit

  • Plain white t-shirt 
  • Plain black sports shorts
  • Plain red or black sweatshirt or hoodie
  • Plain black or navy jogging bottoms (not leggings)
  • Trainers and sandshoes for indoor PE (these will be kept in school throughout the year)
All uniform should be clearly labelled with your child's name.  Children will need a book bag to bring to school each day.  Backpacks are NOT permitted.
 
PLEASE NOTE
Children are NOT PERMITTED to wear any type of earrings for school.  This decision has been made as the school day is now much more active, rather than just during a PE lesson as the children participate in active maths, golden mile, brain breaks etc.  If your child comes to school wearing earrings they will be asked to remove them.
 
Please bear this in mind if you intend to have your child's ears pierced during holiday time as they will need to be able to take them out ready for the start of school.
