Dear Parents, carers
I am writing to ensure that you are fully aware of the uniform requirements for Year’s 7 to 11 from September 2018.
There have been some minor changes to the School Uniform Policy which include:-
Girls – Everyday school uniform
Year 7 & 8 – Pleated check grey skirt available from our uniform suppliers (Other year groups may wear this skirt).
Year 9 to 11 – An A line skirt available with an SJFCC logo from our uniform suppliers or a pleated plain grey skirt. Note: Skirt should be knee length and not excessively tight, nor have exposed zips.
Make-up should not be worn by girls from Years 7 to 8 at all. From Years 9 to 11, subtle* make-up may be worn. Anyone who does not comply will be given hypoallergenic wipes to remove the make-up. Nail varnish and false gel (shellac) nails are not allowed. Anyone who does not comply will be required to remove the nail varnish. Hypoallergenic nail varnish removal will be available for this purpose.
Please note pupils should wear plain black shoes. Training shoes, pumps or plimsolls are not allowed.
The updated School Uniform Policy and the uniform requirement list is available on the school website. If you require a paper copy of the policy or requirement list please contact the school office.
St John Fisher uniform can be purchased from Smart Uniform and Clive Marks in Newcastle. If you are able to find similar items elsewhere they may be substituted as long as they meet the criteria.
At St John Fisher Catholic College we expect that the uniform requirements will be met by all pupils.
I wanted to give you the opportunity well in advance to ensure that your son/daughter is wearing the correct uniform in September 2018.
Thank you for your continued support in this matter.
Mrs T Madden
