Uniform information

West Jesmond Primary Uniform Policy 
The West Jesmond Primary uniform colours are navy blue and gold.
For the 2022-23 academic year and going forward, after consultation with a group of parents and Governors and  following the Department for Education request for schools to review their uniform policy, we are reverting back to having sweatshirt-style navy jumpers and cardigans instead of the current V-neck design. Any child with the current V-neck will be able to continue to wear them for the 2022-23 academic year while we transition to the sweatshirt style jumper.
Our uniform is:

General Uniform (3 days a week)

  •        Navy blue sweatshirt or cardigan with or without the logo
  •        Yellow or navy blue polo shirt with or without the school logo
  •        Navy blue trousers, skirts or shorts

Coats and fleeces are also available from our supplier at parents own discretion. Fleeces should only be worn as outside clothing.
