                                                SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY

Below are the details of the uniform requirements for all students who attend St Joseph’s Catholic High School. The
policy endeavours to clearly state the boys’ and girls’ summer, winter and sports uniform. Also included are the policies
on grooming, jewellery and hats.

The presentation of students attending St Joseph’s Catholic High School is a high priority, as the way students present
themselves is a reflection of the pride they have in the school and themselves. We aim to set a standard that we can all
be proud of and which brings credit to students, parents and the school. There are aspects of the school uniform code
that are necessary to comply with the Occupational Health and Safety regulations and to ensure students’ safety in
speciality areas.
St Joseph’s Dress Code aims to instil standards accepted in the workforce.

All students are expected to wear the full, correct uniform at all times, and maintain their uniform to the highest standard.
It should be neat and tidy. All items of student clothing should be marked clearly with the students’ name.

As a Catholic school upholding Christian values of equity and fairness, it is very disconcerting when some students
choose to set themselves apart from the general student body by wearing incorrect uniform or being groomed
inappropriately.

A growing concern is the purchase of school uniform items from outlets outside school. If uniform items are not purchased
from the school Uniform Shop, they are not school uniform.

The school’s Uniform Code, like many other matters of school policy, relies heavily on parent support. The school can
only enforce the School Uniform guidelines if parents/guardians provide the correct uniform and closely monitor their
child’s uniform and grooming regularly. I am asking parents to sign the Agreement below which states your support of the
school’s Uniform and Grooming Policy. Each student is also required to sign the contract to verify their understanding of
the policy and their agreement to abide by it.

Failure to adhere to Uniform Regulations will result in the following:
• First offence - Lunch detention
• Second offence - Lunch detention
• Third offence - Afternoon detention
• Forth offence – Parent interview

Thank you for you continued support.

                                     PARENT/GUARDIAN/STUDENT AGREEMENT

I fully support the St Joseph’s Catholic High School Uniform and Grooming Policy. I understand that students who
disregard the Uniform Code or fail to wear the correct uniform on three occasions will be placed on detention and, if
blatant disregard of the school policy continues, parental interviews will take place and students could be stood down
from classes until the problem is rectified.
