After a very successful student council meeting our Student Council requested and designed an optional St Kevin’s College Summer Uniform.  A key focus of this uniform design was to reduce the cost on parents. 


It will consist of the St Kevin’s College PE Top & Black Knee Length Shorts.


We are introducing our Optional Summer Uniform from tomorrow it will be the St Kevin’s PE Top & Plain Black Knee Length Shorts-designed by our Student Council & Year Heads. Pupils can still wear the normal uniform. The summer uniform can be worn on the 2nd day of 20oC temperature.


Pupils can wear the Summer Uniform from 13th June onwards.


Implementation of Policy

It is the responsibility of Parents to ensure that their child comes to school wearing the correct regulation school uniform.

It is the responsibility of all staff to monitor and enforce the wearing of the school uniform as part of the day to day running of the school.

Persistent breaches of the uniform policy will be addressed firstly by the Form Teacher; a message may be sent home via the school app or by phone. A time period may be put in place to resolve the situation in question.

If further breaches of the school uniform occur a meeting may take place between the parent, the student and the Form Teacher and or Year Head.
