At New Hall Primary, we aim to promote each child’s right to express their gender and personality in whichever way feels right for them. To support this aim, our uniform policy is gender neutral. This means that, whilst we expect all of our children to wear uniform, the rules for boys and girls are the same and we do not insist that they wear specific items of clothing.
Please ensure that all items of clothing and uniform are clearly labelled with your child’s name as we cannot be responsible for items that go missing.
