At St Matthew’s Primary School we believe that all children should wear a full school uniform.  This enables the school to create a sense of identity and helps all the children to feel part of something special.  We expect all children to wear the correct uniform everyday. All uniform can be purchased from the school reception.

  • boys must not have shapes or patterns shaved into their hair
  • sunglasses are not allowed to be worn by pupils in school

Many retailers including Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, M&S and Debenhams stock appropriate school uniform.

Please ensure that all items of school uniform including PE kits and bags are labelled.  If you do not have name labels simply write your child’s name onto the label inside the item in a permanent pen. Naming items should mean that your child will not lose things at school.
