St Nicholas School Uniform Guidance

St Nicholas has a smart distinctive uniform worn by all the pupils. This is complimented by a range of PE kit and clothes provided by the school for key activities such as choir or sporting competitions.  Our children are rightfully proud of their school and this shows in the way they display themselves in their uniform.

 From June 2018 most items are available online from Essential Schoolwear. Trousers, skirts and pinafore dresses are available in most chain stores. 

It is essential that all items are clearly labelled *

We are now selling permanent marker pens as an option to label items of uniform and other clothing.

We are also allowing parents to embroider their child’s initials on the front of school jumpers and cardigans. The initials must be underneath the St Nicholas logo, neatly done and no bigger than and in the same colour as the St Nicholas letters. Please note however that once an item of uniform has been altered in any way, we will not be able to replace or offer a refund if any subsequent faults occur. This does not affect your statutory rights.

An excellent “nearly-new” clothes shop is operated by parents by arrangement where good quality garments are available at a fraction of the normal cost.

Jewellery and hair

Jewellery must not be worn in school unless this is for religious purpose for example the Sikh Kara, when required to wear for religious purpose the school must be informed in writing and it must be discrete. No earrings should be worn other than plain studs which can be removed by the child. Watches may be worn but should be removed as required in line with the PE policy. Hair must be neat and tidy and of a natural colour.  Any hair accessories must be maroon, black or white - blue and white in summer. 

Notification

Parents will be notified in writing if the uniform rules are being ignored and support will be offered for those families who require it.
