We know that many of you have lots of questions about school uniform, PE kit and equipment requirements for the new academic year in September 2020. The Government guidance confirmed that students will be expected to return to school wearing their school uniform. We will follow this guidance but will let you know, of course, if our risk assessment that outlines how we are going to keep you all safe, changes this plan.
We know that many of you will now be planning to purchase these items over the coming weeks and hope that the information below can act as a checklist for everything you need!
Our school uniform is currently available from Skoolkit
|Black trousers||Plain black, tailored, loose fitting trousers. No jeans, skinny trousers or corded type trousers.|
|Plain white shirt||Plain white shirt with a collar and either short or long sleeved. No tshirts.|
|Black Noadswood Blazer||Black blazer with the Noadswood logo on the pocket.|
|Tie||Noadswood school tie with the coloured stripes of your house (Prefects may wear the Noadswood prefect tie)|
If you choose to wear a skirt, we ask that all year 7s wear the Noadswood school skirt. This is available from Skoolkit and is embroidered with the Noadswood badge. For students in years 8 – 11, we know that you may already have a school skirt. We ask that when you replace this skirt, you do so with the Noadswood skirt embroidered with the badge as above. All skirts should be black and knee length. Skirts should not be rolled up at any time.
|Optional black v-next jumper with Noadswood logo||Students do not have to wear a jumper underneath their blazer but if they wish to, it must be the black v-neck jumper with the Noadswood logo. No hoodies or zip up jumpers to be worn under or over blazers.|
|Shoes||Formal leather style, plain black shoes. No trainers, boots, canvas shoes or sport style shoes.|
|Outer coat||Coats to be worn on top of the school blazer. No denim jackets, leather coats or sport jumpers/hoodies with our without zips.|
All years: School rugby shirt, plain black shorts, knee-length red socks, training shoes. Years 7,8 and 9: Plain white t-shirt or white polo shirt with the Noadswood badge. Years 10 and 11: Black polo shirt with Noadswood badge.
PE Specific Uniform
Mr Shearsmith our Curriculum Manager for PE has provided a helpful infographic below with regards to the footwear for PE. We ask parents to purchase boots that are suitable for our astro AND field. Please use the image below as a visual reference.
No jewellery other than a pair of small stud earrings in the lower lobe of the ear. A wrist watch or medical alert can be worn. No other piercings are permitted.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that you will also need to bring your own stationery equipment - particularly important this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will not be able to lend equipment to students. We will have a small stationery shop on site in which you can purchase basic items, but do what you can to get yourself kitted out.
We ask that you bring your own:
- Scientific calculator
We also recommend that you bring your own glue stick and small pair of scissors. Subject departments will have a very small number of these items which can be used in classrooms but if you are able to bring your own, this will be really helpful.
