All pupils attending St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School are expected to wear full school uniform. A good, clean, smart appearance is an asset to each pupil, and the school seeks parental support via the home school agreement in the maintenance of such an appearance. We are proud of our uniform and the smart appearance of our pupils which is constantly praised by visitors and the wider community. This in turn benefits our young people.

GENERAL NOTES ON UNIFORM AND PERSONAL APPEARANCE
Uniform is supplied by Brenda’s, but items can be bought in many different shops.
Blazers can be purchased from the school office.
No nail varnish, false nails or make-up may be used at school. Hair sprays and gel are not allowed. Fingernails to be short, neat and clean. Only stud earrings may be worn and only in the lobes of both ears. Single earrings are not allowed. Earrings must be removed for all curriculum activities where a safety risk is thought evident. Further details on health and safety are available in the Health and Safety policy, available from the school office.
In addition to correct uniform, we expect a smart appearance from all our pupils, including appropriate hairstyles and suitable outer garments. Braided hair with beads or coloured decorations, extreme hairstyles, spiked, coloured hair or designs shaved into the hair are not acceptable. If pupils are not wearing the correct uniform, parents may be contacted. Regular uniform checks are carried out by the Senior Management Team. All children with longer hair, boys or girls, are expected to have it tied back. This is for safety reasons as well as to guard against any spread of headlice/nits.
Fashions change with such bewildering rapidity that it is not possible to cater for every possibility in print. The school must, therefore, reserve the right to decide what is or is not allowed, both in uniform and general appearance, in cases not catered for by specific rules.
It would be advisable, when in doubt, for parents to contact the school before spending money on items which might not be allowed.
