Collingwood Primary School, North Shields - Welcome to Our New School Website!

School Uniform

Rationale - 

At Collingwood, we believe that all children should wear school uniform in order to promote our unique school identity and to engineer an culture of belonging and inclusion. We feel that it is important that we adopt a fair and equal approach towards all children and that we all live by the same rules. The uniform has been designed to be smart, simple and easily accessible. Health and safety also plays an important part in our decisions as regards uniform.

At Collingwood, we follow the government guidance to ensure that our school uniform policy means that it is affordable for all of our children and families. The website can be accessed here -


All uniform is available from Emblematic and not from school office

However, many children wear grey jumpers and cardigans which can be easily purchased from local supermarkets at a cheaper cost. 

We also ensure that we have a stock of uniform at school which we can loan or give to new starters and to any families who request this, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need help with this.
