Uniform

The wearing of the school uniform is compulsory at the Gateway Primary Free School and strictly enforced. We use the phrase, ‘if you look smart you act smart’ to try to get the pupils to understand that uniform worn smartly helps them to feel good about themselves, which has a knock-on effect with how they function within the school.  We are convinced that school uniform promotes a positive attitude, high standards and a sense of belonging to the school.   

New intake parents/carers can purchase uniform on the following dates:

Tuesday 20 June & Wednesday 21 June 5.30pm

Collection of uniform will be on the following dates:
