As the summer holidays fast approach and you perhaps start to consider purchasing new school uniform for the forthcoming school year, please may we ask that you bring in any outgrown of unneeded items of school uniform for Mrs Cook at Seaton Sluice Middle School?
Mrs Cook plans to take all of the items to a fantastic North East charity called 'Community School Clothing Scheme' which is based at the Cobalt Business Park near the Silverlink in North Tyneside but covers much of the North East region and all of our local schools. The scheme is run entirely by volunteers and specialises in pre-loved school uniform.
All families can access the scheme on a drop in basis (no forms/questionnaires/or referrals needed) and all uniform is free for anyone who needs it. The centre is open Mondays to Friday 10am - 2pm and alternative Saturdays 10am - 2pm. The telephone number is 07305 963706.
So, if you have any items of uniform that you no longer need including: shoes, trainers, coats, PE kit etc., for any of our local schools - not just ours, please bring them into school and I will take them along to the centre.
If you have any questions please contact Mrs Cook at Seaton Sluice Middle School via Schoolcomms or contact the Clothing Scheme direct via their Facebook page - Community School Clothing Scheme.
