School Uniform

At St. Andrew’s and St. Mark’s we expect all children to wear school uniform. We believe this shared identity gives children a sense of belonging and helps them to take pride in the school and their appearance. Winter uniform is worn from after the October half term until the end of the spring term.

In-line with government guidance, we have reviewed our uniform policy to ensure that our uniform keeps our sense of belonging whilst branded items are kept to a minimum. We would like to stress that no new items have been added and all existing uniforms are acceptable. Ultimately, the changes to our policy, which will take effect from January 2023 are to ensure our uniform is affordable for families.

The changes are:

● No requirement for the red PE sweatshirt to include the school logo

● No requirement for the red PE shorts to include the school logo

● Plimsolls for indoor PE will no longer form part of the uniform.

This means that the only 3 items required to have the school logo will be:

● Red jumper/cardigan

● Tie

● White PE shirt.

We continue to have PMG Schoolwear as our supplier for branded items and there will be a weekly second-hand uniform sale every Friday at 3.00pm in the foyer, starting next week - all proceeds going to the PTA. We are always open to feedback with regards to uniform or any other issue via the school office (in person, on 0208 3902976 or via

All hair below shoulder length must be tied back and no jewellery is permitted. Please ensure your child wears a black, red or white headband/ hair tie to match the colours of our school uniform.
