SCHOOL UNIFORM AND PE KIT LIST
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.

All packed lunch children are expected to conform to the healthy eating requirements set out by the DFE. No crisps or sweets or chocolate are permitted. Water is provided on specific request. It is a condition that all children who remain at school during the lunch break behave in a reasonable manner.

Our school provides a milk scheme that is available to all our pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2 – you will need to register your child. School milk is free for under 5’s, and for over 5’s it is available at a subsidised* price of around £15.00 a term.
Each child that registers with Cool Milk will receive a 189 ml portion of semi-skimmed milk every day, delivered fresh and chilled to the classroom. Their school milk will not only provide them with essential nutrients, but as it is rehydrating and energy boosting it also bridges the gap between breakfast and lunch to help children stay focused. For more information on how milk can benefit children visit www.coolmilk.com/why-milk-is-great.
Pupils eligible for free school meals will receive free milk and will be registered with Coolmilk by the school.
