Reminder – School uniform for September 2019

The changes to the school uniform which were introduced in September 2016 have now been in place for three years and in that time we have received a great deal of very positive feedback from parents, students, staff and visitors alike.

New Uniform for Sept 2016 01

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the uniform requirements. All items of uniform are available from our local uniform supplier Thomas Moore, in Exeter but may also be available from other retailers or on-line. However, if you do use retailers other than Thomas Moore please ensure that your purchases fully comply with our uniform requirements. Many of these items are also available second-hand from our PTA, who can be contacted by emailing PTA@spexe.org.

 

The uniform requirements outlined below apply to all students in Years 7-11.

Students can wear either uniform option, but may not mix and match between them.

(Two recent additions are highlighted in italics)

Uniform Option 1:

  • St Peter’s white ¾ sleeved Rever-collar blouse with school badge.
  • St Peter’s navy blue V-necked jumper or cardigan with school badge.
  • Either: Trutex Low Moor Snr Tartan Kilt (worn at knee length)

Or Trutex GTB (Black Trouser)

Or Banner Hadley (Black Trouser)

Or Black tailored school shorts (with no outside pockets or cargo-style pockets)

  • Low heeled plain black leather shoes (heels no more than 3 cms above the top of the sole). Canvas shoes, boots, trainers and backless shoes are not permitted and must not be worn to and from school.
  • Plain navy or black tights must be worn. (Leggings are not acceptable)

Uniform Option 2:

  • St Peter’s white short sleeved shirt with school badge and St Peter’s blue and red striped clip-on school tie
  • St Peter’s navy blue V-necked jumper or cardigan with school badge.
  • Either : Trutex style TFF (Black Flat Front Plain Trouser)

Or Trutex style TVT (Black Jet Pocket Trouser)

Or Black tailored school shorts (with no outside pockets or cargo-style pockets)

  • Low heeled plain black leather shoes. Canvas shoes, boots and trainer-style shoes are not permitted and must not be worn to and from school.

We expect all students to wear their uniform properly, in order to create a positive reputation for themselves and for St Peter’s. Failure to do so may result in sanctions including exclusion. 

New Uniform for Sept 2016 02

  • Hoodies and non-uniform jumpers may not be worn in school at any time.
  • Hair should be kept neat and tidy and of one reasonable length, style and must be of one natural colour. (Shaved heads, stencilled, or very short hair are not acceptable.)
  • Nail varnish should not be worn in school and make up should be subtle.
  • No jewellery should be worn apart from a watch and not more than one plain gold or silver stud in each earlobe, no other piercings are permitted.
  • No garment should be visible underneath the school shirt or blouse.
  • Bring your belongings in a bag which is large enough to hold an A4-type folder – smaller bags and handbags are not permitted.

There are one or two aspects of the school uniform requirements which are not always fully complied with by all students. Please support the school by

making sure that your child wears the correct uniform. In particular ensure that:

  • Skirts are of the correct length when they are purchased. They should be worn at knee length. We will ask you to buy another skirt of the correct length if your child arrives at school wearing a shorter skirt and we would rather you avoided the expense of purchasing items that don’t comply with our uniform requirements.
  • Skirts are not rolled over at the top.
  • Trousers are of the correct style when they are bought. We will ask you to buy another pair of trousers if your child wears non-uniform styles, including trousers which are too “skinny” or black jeans.
  • Shirts are not worn untucked.
  • Your child does not wear a hoodie or non-uniform jumper to school. This may result in the item being confiscated.
  • Low heeled plain black leather shoes are worn to school. Canvas shoes, boots and trainer-style shoes are not permitted but leather Vans-style or Converse–style shoes are allowed. We will ask you to buy another pair of school shoes if your child comes to school in canvas shoes, boots or trainers.
