As well as wearing school uniform pupils and parents at St Joseph’s are expected to abide by the following rules regarding appearance:-

 

  • Black flat shoes which fully enclose the child’s foot and are fastened with Velcro or a buckle – sandals are not appropriate for health and safety reasons. Shoes with laces are acceptable in Key Stage 2, however children should be able to tie their laces independently.

  • Trainers are allowed as part of the outdoor PE uniform only. Children will not be allowed to wear trainers during the non PE days.

  • Earrings or any other jewellery are not allowed as part of our uniform policy.

  • Watches, an analogue watch may be worn by children in Key Stage 2 to help children learn to tell the time but we take no responsibility for any expensive watches/fitness watches, smart watches which are worn in school.

  • Extreme Hairstyles e.g. coloured hair, hair with logos or shapes cut out, styles that are obviously not in keeping with what is normal within the school, are not allowed and the Headteacher reserves the right to instruct parents to collect child/children whose hairstyle/s contravenes this ruling. If in doubt, always check first.

  • Long hair should be tied back in school but particular for PE, Science, Investigations and Design and Technology for health and safety reasons.
