School Uniform

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside school hours. We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school Uniform Policy. New school uniform may be purchased at Petit Modes, Sale or pre-loved uniform can be purchased through our PTA by emailing stjosephsptasale@gmail.com or through the PTA website www.stjosephs-pta.co.uk

 

Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

    Promotes a sense of pride in the school.

    Engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school.

    Is practical and smart.

    Identifies the children with the school.

    Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.

    Is regarded as suitable wear for school.

    Is designed with health and safety in mind.

As a school we take the health and safety of our pupils very seriously. For this reason we do not allow jewellery, except for plain gold or silver, non- jewelled stud earrings which must be removed during PE and games. Children are to have only one earring in each ear. A small watch may be worn. FitBits and other similar alternatives are not permitted.

Long hair should be tied up and fixed with slides as necessary. Simple, non-elaborate headbands and hair accessories may be worn. Children should not have their hair cut in any extreme styles, e.g. too short, (less than a number 3) or in the style of some celebrities with hair long at the top and shaved at the bottom or dyed.

Nail varnish,  temporary tattoos and make up should not be worn.

Please label all items of clothes including coats and shoes.
