We appreciate that children take a lot of pride in wearing their school uniform and being a representative of St. Malachy's. 

Appearance is not just about wearing uniform but also relates to hairstyles, nails etc. Please read this guidance carefully to avoid any dress code issues. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact school.

Thank you for your support in maintaining our high standards across all aspects of school life.

Our Uniform Policy can be found here.
