Horsforth Newlaithes


Please note, we have recently designed a new school logo. We encourage you to continue to wear uniform with the existing logo until it needs replacing. We anticipate this will be a gradual change and have no problem seeing both logos for the foreseeable future.

Children are encouraged to wear suitable clothing in the school colours. The school uniform consists of the following items:

  • purple sweater with school logo,
  • white polo shirt, (available with the school logo)
  • grey trousers or skirt/pinafore
  • black shoes or trainers

School cardigans, sweatshirts, polo shirts and PE kit can be ordered through school or purchase at Whittakers Schoolwear (Formally Uniformity), which is based in Farsley. It is essential that all school clothing is clearly marked with the child’s name. Children will require black plimsolls for their indoor shoes, for Health & Safety reasons, slippers are not allowed as indoor shoes.

Children should not bring valuable personal items to school. For safety reasons we have a ‘no jewellery’ policy except that children may wear a watch and one pair of simple studs if ears are pierced. We feel that make-up and nail polish are inappropriate for school and therefore should not be worn. 

Children should have the following clothing for Physical Education: 

Indoor activity: plain purple PE shorts and plain white T-shirt. (School motif t-shirts can be ordered from Whittakers.) 

Outdoor activity: PE kit as above, purple hoodie, a tracksuit or suitable ‘bottoms and top’ in school colours, navy or black, suitable footwear and socks. (School motif hoodies can be ordered from Whittakers.)

The full school uniform policy can be found in the policies section of the website.
