At St Matthew’s we are proud of our school and believe that school uniform is important as it looks smart, contributes to a sense of belonging and fosters a feeling of pride.
School uniform consists of:
- A navy sweatshirt or cardigan (which is available from the school office)
- A white shirt
- Black or grey trousers or skirt
- Black shoes
Girls may wear blue and white checked dresses during the summer time.
Participating in Physical Education lessons is a statutory requirement. To comply with Health and Safety regulations all pupils must have a PE Kit in school. This should consist of a plain white t-shirt and black shorts or jogging bottoms with black pumps.
All items of uniform and personal belongings should be clearly marked with the pupil’s name.
Earrings are not part of the school uniform but if ears are pierced, then we request that only one stud earring in each ear is worn for school; studs should be small and as flat as possible. Necklaces, bracelets and rings are not to be worn to school. Children are, however, encouraged to wear a watch. No jewellery under any circumstances must be worn for PE lessons.
Children are not allowed to wear nail varnish or make-up.
