School Uniform

At Sacred Heart we believe that our uniform encourages a sense of pride in appearance and a feeling of belonging to the school family.  Therefore, the rules concerning uniform are strongly encouraged and continually enforced.

Uniform items are available from our on-line supplier, Nationwide School Uniforms and samples of jumper and cardigans are available in the school for you to try on your child. Please make an appointment with the office.

The following uniform was agreed after consultation with parents:

Water bottles, school ties and descant recorders are purchased by placing an online order via Wisepay.

Foundation Stage / Reception

There are a few exceptions to the above uniform for these children. We would suggest that reception children wear short sleeved white shirts instead of those with buttoned cuffs.  When playing with water, paint, glue etc. they find it impossible to undo buttons, roll up sleeves and then re-fasten cuffs.

General

All children should have a pair of wellingtons or an additional pair of suitable outdoor shoes in school for winter outdoor play. 

In general terms, jewellery is not allowed at any time. However, the wearing of religious items such as; rosary beads, crucifix etc is permitted. For a child who has pierced ears, one pair of small plain studs in the ear lobe is acceptable but not encouraged. Children in all classes are allowed to wear a watch (analogue, digital or smart).

Any jewellery items worn in school, must be removed when taking part in PE lessons. The school will not be held responsible for any injury or loss caused as a result of wearing any of these items.

Hair must be neat and in a conventional style.  No colourings or fashion statements. Hair accessories must be in school colours only (red/grey/white/black or hair-coloured)

We would urge you to name all items of uniform as it is almost impossible to trace the owners otherwise.

We do not hold an official ‘lost property’ box.
