Uniform Policy

Vice Captains updated

St Columbkille’s pupils have long been complimented on how smart they look in their uniform both by visitors to the school and when representing the school in the community or at public events.

The wearing of a school uniform helps promote the identity of the school in the local community and helps create an ethos of sharing and pride in the school. In addition, the wearing of a uniform helps towards increasing the protection of all pupils.

Pupils are requested to wear:

Grey trousers or skirt

White shirt or blouse

School badge School tie

School polo shirt [white] for PE

Grey school sweatshirt, cardigan or zipper

School woollen hat [black]

School waterproof fleece [black]

School blazer.

Our pupils are encouraged to be neat, clean and suitably dressed for school. Parents are asked to put their child’s name on all footwear and items of clothing.
