School Logo

St Mary's C of E

School Bideford

Uniform Information

Children are expected to wear a gold polo shirt, with a school blue sweatshirt or cardigan with a school logo.  This should be worn with grey or black trousers, shorts, pinafore dresses or skirts and black, navy blue or grey tights or any socks.  In the warmer weather blue gingham school dresses may also be worn.  Below are two companies who can supply our school uniform to you.


Shoes should be fit for purpose and suitable for running around.  They must be black and secured with a buckle, laces, velcro, zip or elastic.  These can be trainer style shoes, provided that they are predominantly black.  If a child attends school in incorrect footwear they (and the parents) will be reminded of the dress code.  If this persists then the parents will be provided with a written reminder and a two week period in which to provide appropriate shoes for their child.


Whilst we do not wish to appear draconian with regard to uniform we firmly believe that if children are dressed appropriately for school then their attitude to work will be better and their learning behaviour and progress will improve as a result.  Thank you for your support in this.
