Uniform

By wearing the uniform learners show their pride in being a member of Christ the Word Catholic School. The uniform should be worn smartly throughout each school day, during journeys to and from school and for other formal school events.

We look for the support of parents and carers in ensuring that learners keep to our uniform expectations. The uniform policy applies to all ages, from Nursery to Year 11.
