School Uniform and Pupil Dress Code
Our uniform policy agreed by the Governing Body and the school's Halachic Authority, Dayan David, reflects our school ethos and values and reinforces our school’s culture of high expectations and academic achievement All pupils must dress according to the uniform policy. Our school uniform is important to us. It is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school community and it promotes a strong, cohesive identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life. It promotes harmony and enhances security.
Smartness and high standards of appearance are expected at all times.
We have a required school uniform for several reasons:-
- Uniforms unite the school. Pupils make a commitment that when they put on their NRPS uniform they will abide by the rules of our school community.
- Uniforms reduce distractions. We are focused on achieving success.
- When pupils are allowed to wear their own clothing, there is the potential to talk about fashions and styles rather than learning.
- Uniforms make us all equal. Whether families have high incomes or low incomes, the pupils come to school looking the same way. No one has to feel bad about the clothes they have or don’t have.
- Uniforms look professional. Pupils look neat and ready to learn.
We ask parents and carers to support all decisions by school staff regarding whether or not clothing is appropriate or inappropriate for school. The school’s Governing Body decides the policy for school uniform which is reviewed periodically and requests that the policy is adhered to by all families in a consistent way.

Year 6 pupils are required to have the correct school uniform all the way through their final term at NRPS. Parents of children who repeatedly come to school with incorrect school uniform will be contacted and asked to ensure that their child has the correct uniform as soon as possible.
As in all schools, no exceptions will be made with regards to any aspect of uniform for Y6 pupils in their final term at NRPS. School kippot and uniform shoes are to be worn at all times. If children outgrow their shoes, parents are expected to replace them so that children attending NRPS are wearing the correct school uniform at all times. The school reserves the right to exclude pupils who do not come to school with the correct uniform after reasonable requests have been made to parents to rectify the issue.
Trainers may be worn for PE lessons only.
If girls wear cycle shorts for modesty, these must not show below the length of the dress / skirt which must fall below the knee
Skirts, dresses or tunics must fall below the knee
The PE Coach reserves the right to exclude any child from participating in a PE lesson on health and safety grounds if they determine that incorrect footwear presents a risk to the safety of the child or others. The decision of the PE Coach is final in this regard. Parents will always be informed and asked to rectify the situation for subsequent lessons.
