Our pupils take great pride in wearing the St. Oswald’s School uniform. Many benefits of wearing school uniform everyday have been identified. These include better discipline and pride in the school and a greater sense of identity and belonging within the school community. There is also less competition between children in terms of what they wear to school and there are no disagreements between parents and children about what a child should wear to school. St. Oswald’s School uniform consists of:
Bottle Green Jumper/Cardigan
Yellow polo shirt (with or without logo)
Grey trousers, skirt or pinafore dress.
Green gingham dress in the Summer if preferred.
ALL ITEMS MUST BE LABELED WITH YOUR CHILDS NAME TO AVOID BEING LOST.

All children are expected to wear school uniform when representing the school in various competitions, concerts and open days.
Footwear - Sensible shoes are the preferred options to be worn. We would ask that parents exercise restraint in the type of footwear your child wears. High-heeled shoes and / or crocs can be a safety hazard and, therefore, are not allowed.
Jewelry - If earrings must be worn to school, they must be restricted to small 'stud' or 'sleeper' type. These should be removed before P.E. and Games as there has been some nasty accidents documented where children have suffered torn ear lobes. All other jewelry is discouraged in the interests of safety and to avoid problems if an item is lost.
