School Uniform 2024-25

Uniform Review:

  • Our school’s uniform has been reviewed with parents/guardians, staff, students and BOM this year, 2023-2024.
  • We are proud to have a uniform which identifies and distinguishes our students and we believe that wearing the school uniform has many benefits for families and for the school. It is understood that students choosing to enrol in the school accept that the full school uniform must be worn during the school day, and to and from the school. Parents/guardians are asked to show support by cooperating fully with the school in ensuring that students wear full uniform.
  • Following on from this review, the information will clarify for you the requirements, in relation to school uniform, in St Oliver Post Primary School for the forthcoming school year, 2024-25.
  • From the beginning of the new school year the schools Code of Behaviour will be strictly implemented where students wear non-uniform items to school.
  • Pupils in 2nd – 6th year, should continue to wear the school uniform they have.
    • The only exception to this is the school skirt.
      • Any pupil who wants to wear the school skirt must purchase the new skirt (below the knee) unless their current skirt length is to the knee.
      • All pupils wearing skirts must pair them with black socks or black opague tights (50 denier upwards).
