St. Christopher’s C of E Primary School has a school uniform and we expect the children to be dressed appropriately in clothes and footwear that enables them to take full part in all activities with fastenings that they can cope with themselves.
It is very important that all of your child’s clothing is clearly named – please remember that all red sweatshirts are identical! There is a lost property box, but named items are quickly returned to their owner. Please encourage your child to be responsible for their own belongings.
To ensure that we have a more affordable uniform solution for parents we are able to badge up uniform in the office using a steam press. This means that you can buy your uniform from any shop including Asda, Primark, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Oxfam superstore and at certain times of the year, we will run a second hand uniform shop at school.
School uniform should be worn every day with the exception of PE days where PE kit can be worn.
