To order school uniform, please follow the link below:
In response to wishes expressed by the majority of parents/carers, the Governing Body endorse the wearing of a uniform as follows:
- Trousers, shorts or skirts in dark grey, black or navy
- Sweatshirt, pullover or cardigan in jade green
- Shirts, blouses or T-shirts in navy or white
- Summer dresses in blue, yellow or green
- Sweatshirts, T-shirts, caps and book bags with the school badge are available on order from school
One of the main reasons that parents/carers and Governors settled on the uniform code of dress was that it helped prevent arguments between parents/carers and children over clothing for the Academy. It is a self-supporting system. If a child is allowed to wear alternative clothes this often undermines the efforts of other parents/carers. The uniform also supports the ethos of the Academy, where children can take pride in a sense of everyone belonging to Osbaldwick Primary Academy ‘team’.
Pupils, in the interest of safety, are expected to wear sensible and appropriate footwear. Training shoes are discouraged for everyday use but can of course be worn during outdoor P.E. If children come to school in trainers they will be asked to change into their plimsolls for the day.
We do try to discourage children bringing large school bags into school due to the lack of space on hooks. However, if you feel that your child needs to bring a bag to school, we recommend a small one that can be hung on their coat peg easily.
