“High standards in uniform are indicative of the high standards that we promote at our school. Our uniform is part of our school identity and motto, uniting our pupils and we hope that they enjoy wearing it.”

At New Earswick Primary School, in conjunction with Pathfinder Multi-Academy Trust, we aim to provide the most cost effective uniform for our families. We have made a  commitment to:

  • Assess the overall cost implications including assessing the impact variations in uniform can have
  • Avoid frequent changes
  • Consider how costs affect different groups of pupils
  • Engage with parents and pupils when reviewing our uniform
  • Negating additional uniform for extra-curricular activities
  • Engage with uniform suppliers to secure good value for money


  • Grey or black skirt, shorts, pinafore dress or trousers (jeans, leggings or hot pants are not permitted)
  • Red or maroon summer gingham school dress
  • White blouse, shirt or polo t-shirt
  • Maroon sweatshirt, jumper or cardigan (logo optional)  
  • Black or dark shoes


  • Sturdy, black or dark flat shoes, indoor footwear (no knee high boots please)

Please note: school holds a selection of indoor black shoes.  Your child will be required to wear these if they are not in the stated uniform.
