Ordering of School Uniform.

Deepcar St John's uniform supplier is a Sheffield based company called School Trends. The use of this company is advantageous to parents as uniform can be ordered at any point throughout the school year and can either be delivered to St John's free of charge or for a small fee delivered direct to your door.

It is possible to order uniform as and when you require by ordering directly through the School Trends on line ordering facility at;

They aim for orders to be delivered within 14 days of the order being received and the payment made.

A note about sizes: The sizes on the order form relate to chest measurements in inches rather than ages. If you are unsure about which size to order for your child, the school office have a selection of sample garments for your child to try for prior to ordering.

P.E. Kit

All children should have the following, which should be kept in a named bag in School:

  • White T Shirt, plain or with the School name and logo

  • Plain navy shorts/PE skirt

  • Navy Blue tracksuit top/bottoms for PE outside in cold weather. School tracksuits are available.

  • Black plimsolls for indoor use. - Trainers are not allowed for indoor PE.

  • Trainers for outdoor PE lessons.

For health and safety reasons long hair needs to be tied back for PE and earrings removed. We are not allowed to assist in the removal of earring and if they cannot be removed independently, unfortunately children will not be allowed to take part in the PE or swimming lesson.


Children are not permitted to wear jewellery to school for health and safety reasons. We allow children to wear stud earrings but these must be removed for PE and swimming lessons.

Make up

Children are not permitted to wear makeup to school and if found wearing it, will be asked to remove it.


Children may only wear black school shoes or plain black trainers. 'Clumpy' shoes, high heels, strappy sandals etc. are unsuitable.

Please ensure all items of clothing and belongings are clearly labelled, as identification can be difficult.

Lost property is stored but children losing an item of clothing should try to find it straight away. It is much easier to find something on the day on which it has been lost. Parents can accompany their child either before or after school to have a look in the school's lost property box for missing items.

At the end of each half term, all lost property will be displayed and some older unclaimed items removed.

Mobile Phones

Mobile phones are not allowed on school premises, except for exceptional circumstances, which will need a letter from a parent explaining why the phone needs to be in school. Your child will need to bring the phone, with the note to the school office, prior to going on the playground, and then be collected at the end of the school day, after your child has left the classroom.
