The students of St Benedict's Catholic Primary School have an excellent reputation for valuing and respecting the traditions of the school community. It is essential for the unity of the school that the school uniform, as an external expression of these values and respect, is worn correctly and with pride.

Students not following the school guidelines for dress standards will be sent a note to rectify the situation.
