St Martin of Porres has a compulsory, practical uniform for all pupils while they are engaged in school activities on or off the premises. By adhering to the School Uniform Policy, the children will see that their parents support the school and they will be teaching them that it is important to follow rules.
No logos, other than the School's, should be visible on clothing, hats, shoes, etc., and all items of clothing should be clearly marked with the child's name.
All items of school uniform can be purchased from our school uniform supplier, School Uniform Direct, at www.SUD.co.uk
