At St. Joseph’s we have high expectations for correct uniform. Our uniform helps to make our children feel part of St. Joseph’s family and they wear it with pride.

St_Josephs_Uniforms

Our Uniform Policy reinforces our culture of high expectations and academic achievement. We encourage age-appropriate dress and focus on teaching and modelling situational attire, making sure pupils know the difference between suitable attire for different settings: school; places of worship; work; holidays and weekends. The Uniform Policy is effective throughout the school year.

Bags and belongings

A maroon rucksack with the St Joseph’s logo must be used for carrying books, homework, letters and other materials to and from school. Other rucksacks and large bags should not be brought into school. A PE bag with the St Joseph’s logo must also be used for carrying PE kit to and from school.

Footwear

Pupils must wear closed-toed, hard-soled, all black plain shoes with a flat sole. Footwear with flashing lights is not appropriate for school. Boots and trainers are not allowed. Open-toed sandals or sling backs should not be worn, even in the Summer Term

Hairstyles / Make-up

Pupils’ hair should be neatly groomed and professional at all times. Long hair (on or below the shoulders) should be tied back neatly in school colours (boys & girls). This is not only for reasons of smartness and appearance but also for health and safety.

Pupils may not wear excessive hair gel, designs or words cut into their hair or permanent or temporary coloured hair. Extreme hairstyles, such as Mohawks and Mohicans are not allowed. Haircuts should be no less than grade 3. Pupils are not allowed to wear fingernail polish or false nails. Make-up is not allowed.

Jewellery/Accessories

Pupils may not wear any jewellery except for one watch and one pair of stud earrings (worn in the lower ear lobe). All studs and watches must be removed for PE. However, we strongly advise pupils not to wear watches or earrings on PE days as the school will not take any responsibility for any watches or earrings that are lost. Please bear this in mind when considering having your child’s ears pierced.
