We have a school uniform at St. John’s because it helps to give all children in school a sense of belonging to the school community. We also find that most parents prefer to have a uniform rather than be pressured into purchasing the latest “designer wear”. We expect children to be dressed neatly and tidily and we hope that all parents will support the wearing of our uniform and help their children to take pride in belonging to St. John the Baptist Primary School.
Whilst many parents choose to use uniform with the school logo we are aware that cheaper uniform is available from supermarkets and other local stores. The school does not insist that children wear uniform with a logo, and as long as parents choose matching school colours, uniform without a school logo is acceptable.
You can purchase our school's uniform with a logo dirent from our supplier. To save on postage costs you might want to join together with other parents and make a joint order.
NO CHUNKY BOOTS
(That would make it difficult or uncomfortable to sit cross legged on the floor)
As indoor plus –
All clothing should be named with your child’s name. Sewn name tags are much better than writing names on labels, as writing will often wear off over a short period of time.
Second Hand Uniform - St John's Uniform Exchange
St John the Baptist Church run a Uniform Exchange each term and welcome donations of good quality uniform throughout the year. This can be donated at the collection box in the school entrance area.
You can find more information about the Uniform Exchange in the school newsletter and on their Facebook page (called ‘St John’s Uniform Exchange’).
On the Facebook page you will find photrographs of shoes and plimsoles which can be purchased at any time in the year. Please contact one of the organisers through the Facebook page to let them know which shoes you would like and they will then deliver them to school for collection.
All profits from the Uniform Exchange go to the Friends of St John’s School.
