We are very proud to be recognised throughout Middlesbrough not only as an Outstanding School where pupils’ demonstrate excellent behaviour and manners but also for the unique uniform colours of brown and yellow. It is for that reason we would like to share with you our proposal to make some slight changes to school uniform whilst ensuring that we maintain the uniqueness of St. Joseph’s.

We are proud of our uniform and all pupils are encouraged to wear it.
Details of the school uniform are listed below:
Grey trousers, grey skirt or pinafore
Yellow polo shirt with badge
Brown sweatshirt or cardigan with badge
Grey or white socks or tights
Black school shoes
In summer girls may wear a yellow & white checked dress.
We ask that trainers and shoes with high heels are not worn for school. Boots and wellingtons can be worn in the winter to travel to and from school and then must be changed to black shoes or plimsolls for inside school.
Indoor PE Kit for girls and boys
White T shirt/polo shirt
Trainers and tracksuits can be worn for outdoor PE. Children will be informed by their class teacher when they need an outdoor kit in school.
Brown sweatshirts and yellow polo shirts are available from Ross school outfitters in Borough Road, Middlesbrough.
Foundation Stage has its own uniform which is similar to that of Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2.
All clothing and personal property must be clearly marked with your child’s name, which may need to be re – checked at intervals in case of fading.
Children are provided with a PE bag for their kit. Book bags are also available from the school office for a small cost. Please do not allow your child to bring any other bag into school. We ask that you co-operate with us on this for two reasons.
1. We do not have sufficient storage space to store large bags.
2. Designer bags and distinctive bags may be tempting to other children. We cannot be held responsible for the loss of bags or any other valuable articles brought into school
Children in Foundation (Nursery and Reception) will need a waterproof coat and a pair of Wellington boots to keep in school.
Whilst every effort will be made to find lost items of clothing the school cannot be held responsible for such loss or damage. Thank you for your co-operation.
Please provide your child/children with a sun hat during hot weather to protect them from sunburn.
