Uniform at St Joseph's

At St Joseph's, we really pride ourselves on the smart uniform that we have. Our school uniform enables our children to feel part of the St Joseph's community and supports our children to have a real sense of equality. We have high expectations of all children and these high standards promote positive behaviour, supporting effective teaching and learning throughout the school.

This is also strongly supported by the DfE, who suggest that a uniform can:

- Promote the ethos of a school

- Provide a sense of belonging and identity

- Set an appropriate tone for education

This is further supported by our Governing board who will develop and implement our uniform policy at St Joseph's.

Hair Styles

If your child has hair that is shoulder length, it must be tied back at all times. A completely shaved head would be deemed unsuitable as would partially shaved heads, tramlines/designs. Hair should be no shorter than a no.2.

 

Jewellery

Jewellery, hair accessories, nail varnish and tattoos are not to be worn at school. Anything that is worn in a child’s hair should be in school colours and modest, no big bows, clips or hairbands.

If earrings are being worn, due to health and safety reasons, only one set of small studs are acceptable. They must be removed for PE lessons or covered with tape.

 

Footwear

Young children find laces difficult, please avoid these when your child starts school. Buckles or Velcro are often more practical solutions. Children should only wear shoes with laces when they are able to tie them themselves – this includes footwear for PE.

Please label your child’s school shoes and wellies. The shoes are often the same and are very difficult to tell the difference when there are children with the same shoe in the same size.
