Abbey Catholic Primary School


There is a school uniform which we expect all children to wear.

It is important that we present ourselves in a way that reflects the respect we have for ourselves and for others and also invites the respect of the wider community. This demonstrates pride in membership of the school and is in support of the school’s aims.
