Second hand uniform items

The School and Parent Association offer a selection of second hand uniform items for sale. Please fill in an order form from the school office. Orders of second hand uniform are filled on a Monday of each week.




A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all the pupils at all times and the dress code is part of the image of the school.  The Governors and staff are very proud of the children and pleased with the support shown by parents.  We know that people speak highly of the school.  We are oversubscribed with waiting lists in all year groups.  When parents are offered places at St. Mark’s for their children, both parents and school sign a Home/School Agreement.  One of the rights of parents is that their child is part of a school with high standards of dress and behaviour.  We encourage pride in the pupils and the school and the school dress code is part of the image of the school.  The Governors and Headteacher insist that this is followed by every pupil.


All uniform and property must be named.  Children are discouraged from bringing personal valuables to school.  We do not accept any responsibility for loss or damage to personal property of pupils.



All hair at or below shoulder length (both boys and girls) must be tied back at all times in school, but especially during PE and games lessons.  School hair ties should be in appropriate colours and styles suitable to blend with school uniform (yellow/white bands).  Hair should be off the face, clipped back and not obscuring sight.

Pupils should not wear extreme hair fashions, which are designed to attract attention, including dyed or streaked hair, and styles such as spikes, mohicans and images or lines cut into the hair.


Body Piercing

Please can body piercing be kept to one earring per ear for stud earrings.  Please can any new piercing occur at the beginning of the summer holiday to give it time to heal as all items of jewellery must be removed for all PE and games lessons, including swimming. If your child is unable to remove their earrings themselves please do not send them to school wearing them.

The large diamond type studs worn by some boys are not allowed.  Any logo or emblem as part of the earring is unacceptable.

Tattoos and body piercings are not allowed.

Make up and coloured nail varnish are not allowed. 


Pupils are expected to follow the same dress code with regard to footwear, hair and jewellery on non-uniform days.

This policy cannot deal with every possible new fashion and variation of dress and hairstyles.  The Headteacher, supported by the Governing body, reserves the right to take exception to hair styles and dress which deliberately breach the general school dress code.


This obviously is a policy for school; out of school, how your child dresses is your decision, when they are not wearing school uniform.  When they are wearing school uniform however, they are representing the school and should abide by all school rules.  Thank you to all parents who ensure their child complies with the Governing Body’s Policy.  The Governing Body and staff want a good learning environment for all our children so that they may take full advantage of the opportunity to progress at school without being distracted and I am sure that all parents want this for their children too.
