It is the policy of the Education and Cultural Services Committee to encourage pupils to wear an acceptable form of school dress as determined by head teachers, parent councils and parents.  In encouraging the wearing of school dress, account must be taken of any proposals to prevent any direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or gender.  Any proposal will be the subject of widespread consultation with parents and pupils. In Holy Family thanks to the support of our parents, all children wear our school uniform, which is set out below

  • Brown sweatshirt / cardigan / sleeveless tank top
  • Blue polo-shirt with school badge / blue shirt with school tie
  • Brown trousers / skirt
  • Black / brown shoes

PE Kit

  • Plain t-shirt
  • Shorts
  • Gym shoes

There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which: 

  • Potentially, encourage factions (such as football colours);
  • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans);
  • could cause health and safety difficulties, such as loose fitting clothing, dangling earrings – please note there is a requirement that all jewellery is removed prior to undertaking physical education activities;
  • are made from flammable material for example shell suits in practical classes;
  • could cause damage to flooring;
  • carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco; and
  • could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do so.
