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.
Uniform – New Online Ordering
Parents can order uniform directly on Leonard Hudson’s online shop. The link is:
“The school profile can also be accessed by logging on to the main Leonard Hudson website at www.leonardhudson.co.uk and searching via Parents/Find My School and typing joseph into the school-name search bar”.
Please note that we will ask that all children wear the new white PE polo shirts from September 2019.
Open toe/heel sandals are not permitted for school wear.
PE AND GAMES KIT
For PE 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.
Navy blue tracksuit bottoms are 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. Jewelled, 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. Children wearing studs will
be required to remove them or cover them with hypoallergenic tape during P.E. lessons. They must be
removed for all swimming activities. Children may wear a watch to school, but no smart watches are
