At St Dominic’s School we believe that school uniform helps to create a sense of belonging and gives us a stronger identity and sense of unity throughout the school community. School uniform can also remove the potential stress on pupils of meeting the expectations of their peers to wear the latest clothes.
Pupils in Years 3 to 11 are required to wear school uniform to class. This consists of:
6th Form students are entitled to wear their own clothes to class.
For PE and Forest School, pupils and students are required to wear black shorts (summer) and a gold, school-branded polo shirt with either a black, school-branded round-neck sweatshirt or black, school-branded zip-up fleece and black (unbranded) tracksuit bottoms (winter). They will also need a black, water-resistant school coat (unbranded).
Items which do not need to be branded can be purchased from any supplier, such as Tesco, Asda, M&S, Sainsbury’s, etc.
School branded sweatshirts, fleeces and polo shirts can be purchased online through Price & Buckland, either via this link: https://www.pbuniform-online.co.uk/stdominicsschool or via the School Finder page on Price & Buckland’s website: https://price-buckland.co.uk/school-finder/
Our PTA, Friends of St Dominic’s (FoSD), sell nearly-new used uniform that can be delivered to school. Everything is either £1 or £2. If you wish to place an order, click here.
We understand that for many of our pupils and students clothing can present some sensory issues. Please let your child’s Form Tutor know if this is the case so that we can discuss any modifications that can be made to help your child feel as physically comfortable in school as possible.
All personal clothing and footwear must be clearly marked with your child’s name.
The Department for Education (DfE) cost of school uniform guidance means schools in England must ensure that school uniform costs are reasonable and families get the best value for money. For more information please click on the following link GOV.UK Education Hub – School Uniform
