The Governors require all pupils to wear the distinctive school uniform. This helps to create a feeling of belonging - children can take pride in being a part of SS. John and Monica's family when they wear it. It also has a practical side, in that, uniform clothes are made to last leaving the children's better clothes for home use. These are the Governors detailed requirements:

School Uniform

  • Grey skirt, pinafore or trousers
  • Green sweater or cardigan
  • White shirt, blouse and school tie
  • Yellow polo top
  • School sweatshirts
  • Green gingham dress for summer
  • Sensible black shoes

Fleece jackets must not be worn instead of cardigans, jumpers or sweatshirts in class. Fleece jackets may be worn OUTDOORS ONLY.

Please put your child’s name & year in each item of clothing to enable us to return lost property to you.

FOR SAFETY REASONS NO JEWELLERY IS ALLOWED IN SCHOOL EXCEPT FOR ONE STUD EARRING IN EACH EAR. This rule applies to boys and girls.

Hair Styles

As part of our wider uniform policy at SS John & Monica's, we do not allow children to have extreme haircuts or styling that sets the child apart from others. The school does not permit children to have haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children such as patterns shaved into the hair, dyed hair (other than a natural shade) and "Mohican" style haircuts. Children may gel their hair to keep it tidy but not to create one of the extreme hairstyles. The final judgement on what is classed as an extreme hairstyle rests with the headteacher and pupils who have such a style will be asked to cover it up until it is made more acceptable. Pupils are routinely reminded about this rule in their class by their class teacher.
