Our Uniform

Our school uniform was changed eight years ago in partnership with families, governors, school staff and children. It is cost effective and the colours chosen are the colours of the original school uniforms worn at St. Cuthbert's many, many years ago. The uniform is intended to be as cost effective as possible and the colours are widely available from supermarkets, shops and online. Every child has a timetabled outdoor learning day each week and we ask that they wear old clothes that day, clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and probably smelling of smoke from the campfire. Children are also asked to come to school in their PE kit on their PE day each week. It is for you to decide where you will purchase your child's uniform, items branded with our school logo are available from Emblematic Quality Embroidery and Printing. You can browse and order items of uniform online at https://emblematic.co.uk/longbenton-store/stcps/ or you can buy items of the same colours from supermarkets, clothing stores and online. Many of our families also use local charities to get uniform and they also donate uniform to school which we pass on the charities. Many items are available for free for the charities we support. Please contact our school office for details of how you can get items of uniform from local charities.  Children wear green ties from Reception Class to Year 4 and a green and yellow tie in years 5 and 6 and these are available to buy at the school office.
