Here at St Joseph’s we strongly encourage the wearing of our school uniform. We believe having a school uniform promotes good behavior, discipline and pride in our school. We want our children to be proud members of our school community and understand that by wearing our uniform, they identify themselves as a member of school, and represent our vision and ethos.
Wearing of the uniform at Primary School also sets a good grounding for Secondary schools, where uniform policies tend to be more rigid and sanctions can be issued for breeches of the policy, as well as preparing them for future, where the wearing of a ‘uniform’ may be compulsory, such as in employment or for certain conventions.
We thank you for your support in assisting us implement our uniform policy.
For children in Y3 upwards (Juniors), the school uniform consists of a school blazer, a school tie featuring our dove logo (available, as a ‘clip on’ for safety reasons), an optional charcoal grey jumper or tank top, white shirt and black or grey trousers or skirt and black shoes (not trainers or boots). Dark tights may be worn.
Children in Y3 upwards do not have to wear a blazer, but may instead opt for a combination of skirt/trousers, white shirt/blouse, tank top or school jumper. For Juniors the jumper is a charcoal jumper with school badge. If you choose not to wear the blazer, we strongly encourage the wearing of the tie with the shirt and grey jumper.
The children do not have to wear the blazer all day and of course may take it off if they get hot or to play outside.
For children in F2-Y2 (Infants), the uniform is black or grey trousers, shorts or skirts, black shoes, and white shirt/polo shirt and a red school sweatshirt/cardigan. However, younger children may also wear the school tie if they wish.
For all PE lessons children are to wear black pumps or trainers and a red polo shirt and black shorts. These can be embroidered with the school logo, but do not have to be.
Purchasing the uniform
All items of uniform, including blazers, ties and tank tops are available from the Uniform Shop. Last year we also added our details to Tesco so that uniform can be purchased from them – however, currently not all items are available.
If your child is in receipt of Pupil Premium, we can assist in the buying of school uniform. If this applies, please let the office know and which items you require. If you are unsure if your child is eligible, please follow the link below, enter your details and we will then be informed if you qualify.
We have a range of accessories available to purchase at the office, such as water bottles and branded P.E. bags and book bags. Please speak to the office for the full range
