Our SCHOOL Uniform
We believe uniform shows that we are part of the school community. We have high expectations of our pupils with regards to school uniform and strongly believe that our high standards promote positive behavior, support effective teaching and learning and contribute to a sense of belonging to the school.

At St Joseph's we value all and appreciate that everyone is different but we do ask that children do not come to school with what could be termed extreme hair fashions (eg. Totally bald shaved head, Mohican, highlights or tramlines).
The wearing of jewellery, earring and ear-studs (metal or plastic) is not be permitted on safety grounds during physical education lessons and other sporting activities such as out of hours school learning or competitive fixtures. This includes body piercings such as tongue studs or belly button jewellery.
These items represent a potential hazard not only to the wearer but also to other children. Medical advice confirms that any jewellery worn in physical education lessons is an unnecessary risk and should be avoided at all times. Serious accidents have occurred as a result of contact between pupils wearing earrings or studs and other pupils or equipment, thus damaging the ear, or where items of jewellery have caught in apparatus and torn the ear lobe.
Head teachers are advised to prohibit the wearing of earrings and ear-studs in all aspects of physical activity where these could present a hazard to the wearer and to others and are advised that pupils who are not able to remove earrings (as these may be newly pierced) should not actively participate in physical education for their own and others safety. In this circumstance a pupil will be asked to undertake the role of coach, official or other learning activity that is relevant.
