The Governing Body has determined the School Uniform to be worn by children attending St. Joseph's School and we expect this dress code to be adhered to. School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of our school and setting an appropriate tone. We expect the uniform code to be adhered to as it can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils.
Open toe/heel sandals are not permitted for school wear.
PE AND GAMES KIT
For physical education sessions all children will be expected to change so that they can move freely.
Children will need the following kit:
Indoor St Joseph’s white polo shirt, navy blue shorts or skort, bare feet
Outdoor St Joseph’s white polo shirt, navy blue shorts or skort, sweatshirt, plimsolls/trainers.
A navy blue tracksuit is permitted in cold weather
Swimming Boys: Swimming trunks – NOT shorts Girls: One-piece swimming costume
Children with long hair must wear swimming caps.
Jewellery must not be worn, with the exception of plain stud earrings. Looped or dangling earrings are not allowed. Unsuitable earrings in pierced ears can result in torn ears when caught in clothing and can be dangerous during PE activities and in normal child play. The School will take no responsibility for any damage incurred through the wearing of unsuitable earrings or studs. Children wearing studs will be required to cover them with hypoallergenic tape during P.E. lessons.
