The presentation of students attending St. Paul’s is important. The way students present themselves is a reflection of the pride they have in the school and themselves. It is hoped that the uniform standard is one we can all be proud of and which brings a positive response from parents, teachers and the wider local community. At St Paul’s parents have traditionally tried to ensure that children wear the correct school uniform. Like other matters of school policy the uniform code relies heavily on parent support. So it is in partnership with the parents that the school has compulsory uniform requirements. 

All students are expected to wear the full, correct uniform at all times and maintain the uniform standard. The school uniform should be neat and tidy and all clothing should be clearly marked with the student’s name. The senior students of the school would set the uniform standard for the rest of the school and make the wearing of the correct uniform their responsibility. 

Children wearing incorrect uniform will receive a standard letter outlining the correct uniform and requesting parent support in ensuring that the child wears the correct uniform. Parents are required to sign and return the reply. If for a good reason the child cannot wear the correct uniform, parents are asked to send a note of explanation. 

Below are the details of the girls’ and boys’ winter and summer uniforms.
