Children at St. Patrick’s are proud to wear their uniform and treat it with care. School uniform instils a sense of belonging and community pride and ensures equality amongst pupils. We maintain a strict uniform policy and ask that parents/carers support all aspects of the school uniform policy, ensure their child is always in the correct full school uniform and mark all items of clothing and footwear with their child’s name.

Key stage 2 classes take part in swimming lessons in the spring & summer terms.

All pupils’ hair styles must be neat, tidy and not be in pupil’s eyes.
Tram lines, shaved patterns, closely shaved styles, coloured hair or coloured hair extensions which are not the pupils’ natural hair colour and fashion styles are not allowed.
All pupils with shoulder length hair must have it tied back for health and safety reasons with a plain black or green band or school logoed hair tie. Hair clips and hair bands must be discrete, functional not excessive and green, brown, black, gold or silver in colour. Hair gel is a cosmetic product and therefore not allowed
To ensure a safe environment for all in school no jewellery is allowed at any time and pupils will be asked to remove them if they are worn in school. This also includes religious jewellery such as crucifixes. If pupils have their ears pierced in term time, parents will need to cover the studs with plasters each day before coming to school until they can be removed.
The wearing of make up or nail varnish is unnecessary and not allowed.
