Why do we have a school uniform?

Here at Lemington Riverside Primary School we want our children to be proud of their school and their community - that is why we have a school uniform, so that children can wear the school logo with pride. We also want our uniform to be affordable for parents and carers. 

Our uniform can be purchased from Elite Embroidery at Bells Close (NE15 6XY), just a ten minute walk from school. 

When your child is a new-starter at our school, we will provide you with a voucher to claim a free school jumper, cardigan or hoodie from Elite Embroidery.

Apart from our school jumpers, hoodies and cardigans, all other items of uniform can be purchased at affordable costs from a range of clothing stores (e.g. Primark, M&S) and large supermarket chains (E.g. Asda, Morrisons, Tesco). 

Although we aim to make our uniform as affordable as possible for our families, if you are struggling financially, please do not hesitate to speak with us and we will support in whatever way we can. We also have a range of second hand uniform available in a range of sizes at the school, at no cost.
