School uniform contributes to a child's sense of belonging and signifies pride in our school. We have a simple school uniform of navy, grey, white and emerald green. All of our uniform items can be purchased from our online school uniform shop, run by our supplier Zip Promotions Ltd.
To maintain a neat and tidy school uniform, we ask that:
- Skirts should be an appropriate length and of a style which allows girls to sit comfortably on the floor.
- Shoes should be flat, black and appropriate for school. Your child should wear shoes which he or she can manage to do up independently. Please do not send your child to school in shoes which prevent them from running in the playground.
- Hair longer than shoulder length must be tied back at all times and hair bands/clips etc must be navy, black or brown.
- Children should not wear make-up, coloured hair or nail varnish.
- Children need a change of clothes and footwear for PE (for health and hygiene reasons) and a bag in which to keep the kit at school.
- All school uniform and PE kit MUST be clearly named. Children can become upset as a result of lost clothing, so please help us by naming everything.
- For health and safety reasons, children are not permitted to wear earrings or any other jewellery for PE. Your child’s teacher will advise you when PE lessons take place so that earrings can be removed.
Our House Teams
All children join a house team when they start school, and will remain in those teams right through their schooling at St Joseph’s. Our house teams are called St Matthew, St Mark, St Luke and St John. Each house team are represented by their own house colour: Yellow, Blue, Red and Green. The children wear their house team coloured shirt for PE lessons, and the teams are brilliantly visible on Sports Day. The shirts can be purchased from the online shop. Non-logo uniforms items can also be bought from high street shops. All uniform items specific to our school are listed as ‘St Joseph’s XXXX’ in the uniform list, for example ‘St Joseph’s polo shirt’, and should be purchased from our online shop.
