Uniform

School uniform is important as it shows we all belong to one school. 

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.

If you would like to order school uniform, please complete an order form and return to the school office with your payment. The form is available from the school office or you can download it from the link below.
