School uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of our school and setting an appropriate tone. At St Joseph’s, we firmly believe that our uniform promotes a sense of pride and gives the school a strong and positive identity in the local community. School uniform is compulsory and the Governors thank parents for adhering to the School ethos on uniform, which emphasises traditional values, neatness and tidiness.
Uniform Changes for September 2018
In September 2018 our uniform is changing with the addition of a blazer for Year 7 and a St Joseph’s school skirt. We are adding the blazer in order to improve the overall look of the uniform and we are adding a skirt so that all students who choose to wear a skirt have the same style. The blazer is available in two fits, has inside pockets and has the school badge on left front. The skirt will be available in multiple sizes and two lengths. It is grey with a light blue check and has all-around pinned pleats.
We are also insisting on black proper shoes from September – no Converse or leather look trainers which we have accepted in the past. Only proper black heeled shoes may be worn.
Students in other years may choose to wear the blazer or continue with their jumpers until September 2019, when blazers must be worn by all.
The rest of the uniform, including PE, will remain the same as it is currently:
- white shirt and tie, navy blue trousers with black proper shoes. The uniform list is on our website.
The St Joseph’s skirt will be the only style allowed in school for all year groups from September. If students wish to wear a skirt, the St Joseph’s school skirt will be available from our uniform suppliers.
Termtex will be in school on June 27th and 28th for uniform purchases.
