St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Live, Love, Believe


Uniform is worn as the clothing that is most suitable for your working day.  It is also a way to identify who you represent.  At St Mary's we wear our uniform with pride because it represents our school community.


As the school is developing the outside area within the school curriculum and because the cost of uniform is increasingly burdensome the school, working within the Government guidelines, is reviewing the school's uniform.  This will happen with strong parental engagement through face to face conversations at Afternoon Tea and through a survey.  The Leader Ambassadors will also be working with the children so that their opinions are gathered.


The outcomes of this Uniform Survey will be shared so that all families know what the expectations will be moving forward.  


All families should note that if there are uniform changes that does not mean that the present uniforms need to be thrown out.  Any St Mary's uniform will be allowed to be worn until it is too used to be worn.  There is NO expectation that everyone will have to buy new uniform.  Secondhand items are always welcome and support the ethos of the school in terms of preserving God's creation through recycling.


Until that point the uniform below is the the uniform guidance.  Please note the only expected items that should be branded with the school logo are the school polo shirt KS1  or Sweatshirt/cardigan KS2 and the school PE top.  All other items may be generic unbranded items.  The colours of these items should follow the list below.  


School shoes should be plain black but may be trainer style shoes.  Shoes should be appropriate for lots of running around and going into forest school.  As such the styles of shoe that fall off the back of the heel when running should not be worn to school: such as ballet pumps.


If you have any uniform question please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs. Sanderson
