At Benton Dene School our uniform is important and all pupils are expected to wear it. Governors have approved the following;
- Navy blue sweatshirt, jumper or cardigan
- Yellow polo shirt (foundation stage), green polo shirt (year 1/2) red polo shirt (year 3/4), royal blue polo shirt (year 5/6)
- Grey, navy blue or black skirt or trousers/joggers
- Gingham summer dress in year group colours (optional)
- Black sensible shoes
- Wellies for adverse weather
- Nursery pupils can wear an optional sweatshirt, which is royal blue.
Benton Dene PE and Games kit is available to purchase from Emblematic and comprises a navy blue and red top with matching shorts and socks.
A change of footwear is recommended for PE/games.
Children do not have to wear our branded school PE kit and can also wear plain black PE shorts and a plain white T-Shirt.
Jewellery should not be worn. The only exception to this is that children with pierced ears may wear stud type earrings. This is for the safety of the pupil and others and agreed by North Tyneside in their safety rules for schools. Watches may be worn to school.
Uniform can be ordered from Emblematic School wear, which has a shop located opposite Asda, on Benton Industrial Estate- http://emblematic.co.uk/
School uniform is also available to order from My Clothing online
Alternatively, unbranded supermarket uniform matching the above colour descriptions can be worn.
The Re:Uniform Project
We have a wonderful group of parent volunteers from the Friends of Benton Dene who have set up the Re:Uniform project and have successfully applied for National Lottery community funding to establish a dedicated building to store and provide pre-worn school uniform. This project will support all of our families and children and prevent pre-worn clothing ending up in landfill.
Please visit the Re:Uniform site to find out more information about the scheme; how it can help you and how you can support the scheme too!

On behalf of the School and Governors we would like to thank FOBS and the team behind Re:Uniform. You are all amazing!
