Please note, for safety reasons, chains or bracelets are not allowed to be worn at school. However, if a child has pierced ears, they are permitted to wear small gold studs (please see below)

Earrings should be removed for Physical Education. As a school we have a duty of care to ensure that students are able to participate actively without unnecessarily endangering themselves or those working around them.  Moreover, where possible, children refrain from wearing earrings on PE days, particularly in the younger year groups. In line with this, we would request that if children wear earrings on their PE day, they are entirely independent to remove and replace their earrings as adults are unable to help the children to do this. Should a child wear earrings to school on PE day, we would ask that they are provided with a small purse or wallet to keep their earrings safe and this should be kept in their PE bag. The school cannot be responsible for earrings being lost.

We always encourage families to wait until the 6 week summer holiday period to have new ear piercings, however know that at times this is not possible. Should a child be within the 6 weeks immediately after having their ears pierced, we would ask a parent/guardian to write to us, informing of the date when the earrings will be able to be removed and that you understand the risks involved with your child wearing earrings when participating in PE as highlighted below:

Should tape be worn to cover the earrings, parents must note the following Health & Safety guidance: “The amount of tape used needs to  be  sufficient  to  prevent  the  piercing  penetrating, for  example,  the  bone  behind  the  ear  should  an  unintentional  blow  be  received  from someone or some item of equipment, such as a ball.”

For safely, a child’s participation in a lesson may be adapted to ensure that their participation is safe. This may involve the child having different tasks assigned to them during the practical element of the lesson, in order to keep them safe.

Please Note

School branded items: Children should look smart and easily identified with our school, St. Joseph’s, when wearing their school uniform. We ask that all jumpers, cardigans, round necked PE jumper and royal blue T Shirt  display the school logo.

Hairstyles:  Hair should be tidy and of a suitable style for school. Hairstyles should be suitable for school with no extremes of fashion. Hair should not be unnaturally coloured.  For health and safety reasons, hair that is shoulder length or longer should be tied back in all lessons.

Hair Accessories: All hair accessories should be simple.

Jewellery: Jewellery is not allowed. This means that your child should not be wearying any necklace or bracelets. Watches are allowed. The only jewellery allowed is small, plain stud earrings. No hoops, sleepers or large earrings should be worn, and pupils will be asked to remove earrings which are not suitable.

Topcoat: any style may be worn but it should be plain.

Reception children: should wear royal polo shirts without a tie for the whole academic year.

All pupils are expected to wear our school uniform

There is an expectation that all children will follow our uniform policy as outlined above. If a child is wearing the incorrect school uniform, the following may happen

  • reminder to child
  • reminder to parent (face to face/email)
  • formal letter to parent
  • formal meeting with parent to discuss the reason behind non-compliance with the school’s uniform policy. The school recognises that there may be varied reasons for non-compliance, and we would hope to work with parents in ensuring all children follow our policy.

Procuring School Uniform

We encourage parents to recycle items and  we hold termly second-hand swaps.

We try to keep down the cost of items with a school logo through promoting parents to order online via Brigade. Bridgade provide all our school items that have a logo – school sweatshirt/cardigan, PE sweatshirt and TShirt.  Please click here:

A local company in Reading, Stevenson also provides school sweatshirts and cardigans:

As the children wear school uniform and articles of clothing are almost identical, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL ITEMS, INCLUDING SOCKS/TIGHTS AND HATS, ARE CLEARLY MARKED WITH THE CHILD’S NAME.
