At Our Lady of the Rosary we are very proud of our school uniform. It plays a key role in promoting pride, self-confidence, and a feeling of belonging within the school. School uniform is not optional and we are grateful to those parents who dress their children appropriately for school.

Lost Property

Naming Clothing and Property is VERY IMPORTANT – Please ensure all clothing and property is clearly marked so that lost articles may be easily traced and returned. The school cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage of pupils’ property and valuables.


Non Compliance with Uniform Policy

Parents and carers of pupils that do not wear their uniform correctly will be contacted and asked to bring in the missing uniform. If this is not possible then pupils will be provided with the uniform, they are missing for that day. The parent or carer will then be asked to discuss the issue at the end of the day. There may be good reasons why a child is not wearing school uniform. In this case, parents and carers should share the reasons with the Executive Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher either in person or by letter.

The school will always be considerate and discrete in trying to establish why a pupil is not wearing the correct uniform. Pupils will not be made to feel uncomfortable, nor discriminated against, because their parents are unable to provide them with the required items of school uniform. We encourage discussion with the school at the earliest opportunity if there are any difficulties.

We ask parents and carers to support all decisions by school staff regarding whether or not clothing is appropriate or inappropriate for school.
