School Uniform

All students at Gosforth Junior High Academy are expected to wear our uniform.

Our Uniform

All students need to wear the school coat and/or fleece to and from school. This is the only coat that students will be allowed to wear to school and must be brought to school every day unless otherwise informed by us. We will not insist that school coats are brought to school after the summer half term break but the decision as to whether or not your child does so is at your discretion. However, if students are to attend an out of school visit at any time (including local visits such as Gosforth Library), they must have with them their school coat or they may not be allowed to attend the visit.

If a student arrives at school not wearing the correct school uniform, he or she may face sanctions.

We expect students to come to school looking tidy and presentable. The wearing of jewellery and make up is forbidden. Please ensure that any ear piercings are done at least 6 weeks prior to the start of school in September (to allow the piercing to heal and establish), as the wearing of ear rings is not permitted in school. Watches are, of course, perfectly acceptable.  We reserve the right to decide what is a reasonable style and colour of hair. No stepped haircuts or patterned haircuts are allowed.  If you wish for your child to wear religious head wear, it must be plain black or navy blue. If your child has long hair it should be tied back. This is a health and safety issue.

Personal music players should not be worn, nor should mobile phones or pagers be switched on or be visible in school.

 


Uniform items

We ask for your co-operation in not allowing your child to wear denims, canvas trousers or trainers for school.

All clothes and personal property must be marked with the child's name - this makes finding lost items so much easier - and surprisingly most children do tend to lose things at some point in their school life! Labels are available from many of the main shops in Newcastle.
