Uniform

Thomas More School Uniform

Uniform and appearance: The full school uniform must be worn to and from school and during the school day.  In general, pupils will present themselves so as not to show adherence to any extremes of fashion or hairstyle*. Items of clothing or jewellery worn in breach of the school uniform may be confiscated. Parents may arrange to collect items as soon as possible; otherwise, students may claim them at the end of the term. 

Something which stands out, unnatural hair colour, bright colours, is not neat and tidy, below grade 2, shaved lines/patterns and does not fit into the ethos of the school. 

Full school uniform must be worn to and from school as well as in school and all other occasions e.g. school outings, unless instructed otherwise. 

It is essential that pupils and parents/carers who choose Thomas More Catholic School accept and follow these regulations at all times. Pupils breaking uniform rules risk having incorrect items confiscated.
