Uniform

At St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School the pupils wear their uniform with pride.  We have the highest expectations from our pupils with regards to school uniform and appearance and strongly believe that our high standards promote positive behaviour, support effective teaching and learning and contribute to the ethos of both the school and the St. Thomas Catholic Academy Trust, to which we belong.


In order to make the school uniform affordable for all, the number of compulsory items with the school logo has been kept to a minimum.  Other items are widely available in larger supermarkets and stores. 

Any items of uniform with the school logo, including PE kit bags and bookbags, may be purchased from Best Look in Dunstable.  Items of good quality second-hand uniform are available from the school office.

Staff cannot remove a child’s earring; parents/carers will be phoned to come in to do this, so that the child can participate in the lesson.
