School Uniform

 

School Uniform Statement

At St Michael’s School we believe a school uniform is important for the following reasons:

  • It promotes a strong, cohesive school identity
  • It fosters a feeling of pride
  • It supports high standards and high expectations in all areas of school life
  • It promotes harmony and equality between different groups represented in the school
  • It reduces fashion competition between children
  • It identifies St Michael’s to the wider community

All children are expected to wear the school uniform. Please see below for detailed lists.

What will we do if children don’t wear the school uniform

We very much hope that everyone will uphold the uniform code: this is part and parcel of joining a school. Technically, non-wearing of uniform is a disciplinary offence. We will  work with parents to overcome any barriers (financial or otherwise) that might exist.

  • 100% School uniform subsidies are available for parents eligible for Free School Meals on income grounds (ask in the office):
  • 50% subsidy available for families not eligible for for income-related support
  • We have a number of unclaimed/donated school cardigans and sweatshirts available for a small donation. 

Please consider donating any good quality uniform your child has outgrown. This is a great way of re-using and avoiding waste.

Where any persistent refusal to wear uniform continues, children will be required to change into clothes provided by the school. We very much hope parents wouldn’t put their child in this position.

School Uniform Survey
 
The results from the recent school uniform survey can be accessed by clicking on the documents below. No fundamental changes are proposed, but overall it has been agreed by governors to work with parents to reduce the number of variations creeping in with a view to 'smartening up' the school.
