It is important that all children wear an item of uniform that identifies them as a Netherlee pupil: This could be the badged sweatshirt or tie.

Optional Items

  • badged blazer – burgundy
  • summer dress – red/burgundy
  • badged coat/jacket – burgundy
  • school hairbands/scrunchies
  • badged fleece – burgundy

Our PTA order the above optional items, apart from summer dresses, along with polo shirts and sweatshirts.


Badged Blazers

Whilst badged blazers do look very smart it is understandable that they may not always be practical.


Gym Wear

  • black/ navy shorts/leggings
  • polo shirt/t shirt
  • gym shoes

Children may also have an outdoor gym session therefore an overtop would be useful on these days.

All items of clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name.



Items that are not appropriate:

There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:

  • potentially encourage faction ( such as football colours)
  • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans
  • could cause health and safety difficulties such as loose fitting clothing, dangling ear-rings, shell suits of  flammable materials in practical classes.
  • could cause damage to flooring
  • carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco and
  • could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do so
  • Pupils should not wear make-up or jewellery to school.

Parents in receipt of income support, family credit, housing benefit our council tax rebate may be entitled to monetary grants for footwear or clothing for their children.  Information and application forms may be obtained from school and from the Area and Education offices.

Under no circumstances will pupils be deprived of any educational benefit as a result of not wearing uniform.
