SCHOOL UNIFORM

At Holy Family we strongly encourage all our pupils to wear school uniform.   It helps to promote positive attitudes towards our school and a strong sense of identity instilling a pride amongst our pupils in belonging to Holy Family.

 

Our school uniform consists of:

  • grey sweatshirts with embroidered school logo or grey or red cardigan
  • red polo shirts with embroidered school logo
  • plain grey or black school trousers/skirt/pinafore
  • in summer red gingham dresses can also be worn by girls.

 

The embroidered school sweatshirts and polo shirts can only be purchased online from ‘My Clothing’ (www.myclothing.com) and leaflets explaining the procedure are available from the school office.   Other embroidered items such as jackets and reading folders can also be bought from My Clothing.

Children should have all clothing clearly named and all pupils are asked to have a pair of gym shoes permanently at school for wearing daily. Please contact us if you require support with providing any items of clothing or footwear.

 

REDUCING THE COST OF THE SCHOOL DAY

At Holy Family, we always encourage pupils to donate items of uniform that they are no longer needing. Due to this, we have several items of clothing available in various sizes.

If your child has grown out of an item of clothing, please send it to school with a note for the teacher and we will endeavor to replace the item of clothing for a bigger size – free of charge 🙂
