SCHOOL DRESS CODE
At St Mark’s we have a uniform. Parents are not obliged to purchase from one supplier. The only items which we do recommend are the school sweatshirt with the school logo, which retails at approximately £8.00 - £9.00 and a school PE Kit. We request that sensible shoes should be worn at all times. Heels should be low to prevent accidents in the playground to children’s ankles and lower limbs. Heavy ankle boots should be avoided for the same reason. Please do not send children into school wearing trainersor sweatshirts as jackets.
Navy Blue Fleece Zip-Up jackets are available for both Boys and Girls. These are to wear as a jacket and not as an alternative to a sweatshirt.

Children must bring their P.E. bag to school each Monday morning and take it home each Friday evening so that the contents may be washed.
ALL ITEMS SHOULD BE CLEARLY LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME
Girls: Please support school by tying long hair up with sensible scrunchies, ribbons or slides. Hair braids are a danger to other pupils in school so please refrain from allowing your child to have this done. During term time hair dyes too, are not permitted for school.
Boys: Hair cuts should be no shorter than a number 2. Please avoid fashion cuts/styles e.g. tramlines
Valuables and Jewellery
Staff cannot accept responsibility for the loss or damage of any jewellery including watches or money.
We do not allow the wearing of earrings, including sleepers as they may cause injury. Children with recently pierced ears will be allowed to wear small studs for a period of six weeks until the wound heals. Parents are responsible for covering studs with plasters. Where children come to school wearing uncovered earrings parents / carers will be contacted to come to school to remove them.
