School Uniform

School uniform requirements for our school.

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School requires that children wear school uniform. The agreed school wear reflects the school’s aims and ethos as a place of learning. It is smart and sensible for everyday wear and presents a good image of the pupils and their school when they are on public display. Our uniform code has been devised by the governors of the school to be a smart, common-sense choice which is good value for money for parents and meets health and safety requirements.

St Joseph’s Uniform is sold at no profit to school from Salto Ltd and Emblematic Ltd. Plain red jumpers, white polo shirts and white t-shirts can be purchased from any supermarket. We have lots of free second-hand or almost new items in school available for families to choose from. Please email the school office with a request for items and sizes. Please note that this does not mean that pupils can wear sports trainers , jumpers or t-shirts with sports logo’s such as Nike or Adidas. This change is to allow unbranded items and not a license for designer sportswear.

All pupils are required to wear a uniform, including plain polishable shoes, own one branded PE t-shirt and one branded red jumper – to wear out on school trips. Our uniform policy allows for summer and winter uniform, however no pupil will be discriminated against for wearing either uniform at any time. The uniform list details all the options available – but red unbranded jumpers and white unbranded polo shirts and white unbranded PE t-shirts are all permitted, except for where pupils are out on school trips, then a branded jumper and/or T-shirt is required
