Uniform Guidelines




Why we wear uniform








These guidelines have been developed through consultation with staff, students and parents over an extended period.
























To stand out as an individual is a personal challenge; to start on a level playing field is a basic right.



Newcastle High School is a uniform wearing school.  Our uniform policy is the result of extensive consultation with the school community and is a feature of the Participation focus of our PBL initiative. Our promotion of uniform aims to ensure:

·         All students are equal

·         There is no competition

·         Conflict is reduced

·         Safety is heightened and identification made simple

·         Pride builds in our school



Our Uniform Expectations


It is expected that all students will attend Newcastle High School at all times in appropriate uniform.


If for any reason a student is unable to be present in appropriate uniform, they should bring a signed note from a parent or carer detailing the issue and requesting consideration for a nominated period of time.


Our uniform is detailed on the following pages and comprises

·         Appropriate footwear which are black leather shoes

·         Navy blue long pants or navy blue shorts or skirt (tartan [jnr] or blue [snr])

·         School shirt or polo (as illustrated)

·         School jumper, school tracksuit top, school jersey or blue jumper or blue school fleece or sloppy joe.


Ø Carers and students are reminded that jumpers should not have a logo other than that of Newcastle High School and "hoodies" on jumpers are not permitted.


Ø Students may wear full sports uniform on sports day for the entire day with the appropriate school jumper.


Ø On days where students have PE, they wear full school uniform and bring their PE uniform to change into before the lesson.


Ø Accessories (scarves, hats etc) are expected to compliment the school uniform if worn and the cooperation of students and carers is appreciated.
