We believe that good standards of dress promote a positive attitude to work and behaviour and identify our students to local residents and future employers. The co-operation of all parents/carers is expected to ensure that students are in correct uniform to and from school as well as during normal school hours. Please note, St Andrew the Apostle School makes the final decision as to what is acceptable in all aspects of a student's appearance in line with expectations below and our school's uniform policy.
