School Uniform

School Uniform

We really believe in encouraging our children to take pride in their appearance and to be smart. This helps with our school value of respect and in order for our school to be truly inclusive, uniform should be exactly that - uniform - so that no-one stands out. Our pupils individuality and uniqueness can and will be encouraged in many other ways!

The St Joseph’s RC Middle School uniform was chosen after consultation with parents/carers, governors and pupils.

The agreed school wear reflects the school’s aims and ethos as a place of learning. It is smart and sensible for everyday wear and presents a good image of the pupils and their school when they are on public display.

Uniform should be appropriate both with regard to the uniform guidance (see below) and in the judgement of Senior Staff.

Full school uniform must be worn every day unless pupils are told otherwise.
