Uniforms

All St. Mary’s students are required to wear the full correct school uniform. We believe that the wearing of uniforms promotes the children’s pride in their school and self-discipline.  Uniform items can be purchased or made at little cost.  The uniform shop at St. Mary’s carries all uniform items, including school and library bags.  There is a small amount of second hand uniforms available in the shop.


Children are expected to have a school bag with the St Mary’s School logo.

Please ensure that your children bring their correct school bag.

An important note on Uniforms.    

Whilst it is not compulsory to purchase uniform items only from our uniform shop, we trust that parents will only purchase items that are of the same as sold in the shop.  We would ask that you continue to support us as we strive to ensure a disciplined atmosphere in our school, by ensuring that your children do wear the standardised uniform.  

Your children may, at times, tell you that it is okay because, “others do it” or “have it”, but this is a good signal that it is NOT okay!


A note about hair

 As we are a primary school, we feel that any change of colour is inappropriate for children.  In the spirit of our practice at St Mary’s,  to keep children as children, we ask that you cooperate with  this and leave the hair colouring as something that they can look forward to in their older age. We also differentiate between “weekend hair” and “school hair”.  The use of hair gel, etc., and styling, is considered to be a “weekend hair” practice. There is also the problem of styling hair so that it will fall over the child’s eyes or face when they lean forward, e.g., long fringes or strands being left out of ties.  This then becomes a distraction when they are writing or reading.   If we can all work together on this then not only does it assist in their learning and  give a more disciplined and uniformed approach, but it will also save you time and money!
