School Uniform

Spa N.S. has always valued the importance of its school uniform. It enhances every child’s association with the school and provides our students with a strong sense of identity and belonging.

Following a whole school review earlier this year, the following school uniform and personal appearance guidelines have been agreed.

  • Every student attending Spa N.S. can wear the complete formal school uniform or the complete school tracksuit option or both depending on the pupil’s and parent’s preference.
  • The school authorities will not allocate days for the wearing of the formal and tracksuit options, but will allow the parents to make this decision provided a few basic guidelines are adhered to and respected. These guidelines are listed on the next page.

Please note also the following important guidelines.

  • The highest standard of personal appearance will be expected at all times.
  • The school will expect that all children’s uniforms will be clean and tidy at all times. Students will be expected to wear the complete uniform. Parents are encouraged to have the uniform washed at the weekends so that the children are not without their uniforms during the week.
  • All torn items should be repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
  • Children will be required to wear the school tracksuit to school on PE days, when going swimming or playing after school sports.
  • The school hopes that all students representing the school at special events such as quizzes, curricular presentations and awards ceremonies will wear the full formal school uniform etc. The school has a stock of many uniform items to assist at these times.
  • Hair should be neat and tidy.
  • No unconventional haircuts/styles, including a grade zero or grade one head shave, are permitted.
  • Long hair should be tied back to minimise the spread of headlice within classrooms and not to disrupt student concentration.

  • Children should have their names clearly marked on their uniforms, coats and other personal belongings.
  • Loose fitting NAVY shorts will be allowed in summer months when announced by school management
