School News & Events

School Uniform Policy

Our School Uniform consists of the following items:

Boys: Blue jumper with school crest
Grey polo shirt with school crest (x 2)
Grey trousers (x 2)
Black shoes
Girls: Blue jumper with school crest
Grey polo shirt with school crest (x 2)
Grey skirt / trousers (x 2).
Black shoes

Skirts must be worn a minimum of one inch below the knee.

All above items can be purchased from Sheridan’s Drapery, Main Street, Granard, Co Longford.

The school jacket with school crest is the only jacket allowed in school.


Since the uniform is the “badge” of Ardscoil Phádraig, it should be worn with pride.  It is highly recommended to have spare items of uniform available.

It is the students and parents / guardians responsibility to ensure that full uniform be worn at all times and for all school related activities.

Jackets, sweatshirts, hats and caps etc, which are not part of the school uniform, must not be worn in school.

It is expected that students exercise commonsense and discretion in relation to make-up, jewellery etc.

All students are expected to co-operate with the School Uniform Policy.  Failure to comply is clearly a rejection of school standards and so will incur sanctions under the Code of Discipline.

Breaches of the uniform policy will be noted by Year Heads in students’ school journals.
