School Uniform at St Mary & St John


We want our children to look smart when at school and feel proud to wear their uniform. Our uniform policy is outlined below.

At Mary and John, we wear a school uniform to:

  • encourage pride in belonging to St Mary and St John CE Primary School.
  • enable children to be comfortable, safe and secure
  • protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • encourage a sense of equality and cohesion
  • support teaching and learning

Uniform is available from the Brigade website, but we want to keep it as affordable as possible. Your child does not need to wear logoed uniform. Simple, affordable uniform can be bought from a supermarket such as Tescos. We also have a lot of pre-loved uniform which can be purchased through the PTA.


In September 2022, we introduced a new logo to the school. If you wish for your child to wear unform with the school logo, the old and new logos will be part of the uniform until children grow out of the older clothes.

Although set days are allocated for PE lessons, there are other times within the week where PE may take place. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school every day to guarantee they do not miss out on these opportunities.


All parents can buy our school uniform from the Brigade website. When you first register with the Brigade website you will need to enter “St Mary & St John” into the ‘new customer’ box.


Please ask the school office if you require help with unform. We are happy to give pre-loved uniform to any family who request it.
