School Uniform

We ask all parents who send their children to Noremarsh to support the school uniform policy.

We welcome children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are strong reasons, e.g. on religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from school uniform, please discuss these with the Headteacher.

Similarly, should an item of school uniform prove problematic for a child with disabilities then please do let us know so that we can find a solution with you.

Jewellery and General Appearance

We do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exception to this rule is the wearing of a watch and stud earrings. Tattoos, nail varnish or any other form of make-up are not permitted. Hair should be of a ’natural’ colour. Long hair should be tied up.


Children should wear black shoes to school (not trainers please). There are many steps and stairs around the building, so we do not allow children to wear shoes with platform soles, open toed sandals, or high heels in school.


Noremarsh school colour is navy blue. All school clothes should be named; lost property is not a problem when clothes are named as items of clothing can be returned straight to their owners!

Our policy is:

  • Navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan with or without school logo
  • White or light blue polo shirt with or without school logo
  • Grey, navy or black school trousers, shorts, dress, or skirt
  • In summer blue checked dress
  • Black, smartly kept shoes


  • Plain white PE shirt (no logos or brand/ sports club insignia please)
  • Black or navy blue PE shorts
  • Black plimsolls or clean trainers for inside and outside use
  • Plain black or navy blue track suit or joggers and hooded top


  • Trunks/shorts (boys)
  • One piece swimming costume (girls)
  • Towel
  • Hairbrush or comb
  • Swimming hat

We have limited space in the corridors, so children are asked to bring a suitable bag to school in which to put their homework and reading book.

If you would like to purchase a branded sweatshirt this is currently available to purchase at

Extreme weather

Children should dress appropriately for extreme weather conditions.

We are lucky to have a very large field but it provides little shade in the summer. It is vital that children have a protective sun hat or cap. Sun cream should be applied to children before they arrive at school on spring/summer days.

Boots and sufficiently warm waterproof coats should be provided in extremely wet or snowy weather.
