We believe that school uniform plays a key role in promoting our ethos, providing a sense of belonging and identity as well as setting the tone for education at St Mary's. As part of our ethos of 'One Family,' all of our pupils wear the uniform in order to create a common identity and parents are strongly encouraged to support us in this. Variations for ethnic or cultural groups will be accommodated and should be discussed personally with the Headteacher.
Winter uniform (to be worn during the autumn and spring terms) includes:
- Grey trousers/shorts/skirts/pinafore dresses
- White shirts (long or short-sleeved)
- School tie *
- Green St Mary’s Logo sweatshirt or cardigan *
- Grey or green tights
- White or grey socks
- Black shoes (which support feet and have sensible grip, no heels, boots or sandals are permitted)
- Long hair should be tied back with green/black/brown bands or accessories
In addition, summer uniform (to be worn during the summer term only) includes:
- Summer dresses – green check

No jewellery should be worn. Watches are permitted. However, Smart watches with connection to the Internet and those capable of taking photographs are not permitted **
For safety reasons the wearing of earrings is discouraged as it poses a risk, especially in PE. Where earrings are worn, they should be plain small studs, and it is the parent's responsibility to provide tape or plasters to cover earrings that a child cannot remove themselves for PE. Variations for ethnic or cultural groups will be accommodated and should be discussed personally with the Headteacher.

** The school accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to any earrings or watches worn to school.
