Uniform Policy

Northgate State School is a proud Independent Public School with pride in our uniform.

The Northgate State School P&C supports a student dress code policy as it promotes the objectives of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006. In particular, the dress code:

  • Promotes a safe environment for learning by enabling ready identification of students and non-students of the school.
  • Promotes an effective teaching and learning environment by eliminating the distraction of competition in dress and fashion at the school.
  • Promotes a supportive environment at the school by fostering a sense of belonging.
Fosters mutual respect among individuals at the school by minimising visible evidence of economic, class or social differences.

We are proud of our students and our school. Our children will develop this pride by the full time wearing of uniforms. All students are expected to wear the school uniform every day.
  • Northgate's Formal uniform is encouraged 4 days per week, and our Sports uniform is to be worn on PE days and at sports events only.
  • Formal uniform is to be worn on all excursions unless specifically notified otherwise.
  • It is expected that all students will wear the school hat at all times during playtime and external activities including before and after school. 
  • Please ensure your child's uniform items are labelled with full name details. 
  • Parents' cooperation in supporting this dress code policy is greatly appreciated.

The Northgate State School P&C association has endorsed this policy.

Second hand uniforms.

Second hand uniforms are available for purchase through the Uniform Shop. We encourage parents to donate their pre-loved uniform items to the Uniform Shop during opening hours. If outside of Uniform Shop hours, second-hand donations may be left at School Administration Office.
