At Christ the King we are very proud of our uniform and many members of the general public often comment on how smart and well dressed our pupils are. We therefore wish to preserve this excellent reputation that our school enjoys. We believe that our uniform strengthens our school ethos and reinforces our strong Catholic identity. By coming to school in uniform our pupils are able to share in that sense of belonging and being a part of the school community. The school will always strive to ensure the highest standards of school uniform at all times.
Christ the King uniform can be purchased from Trutex in Erdington.

All pupils, staff and parents will be made aware of the school expectations on uniform. This will be through the uniform policy, guidance in pupil and staff planners and the parent noticeboard. Reminders will be given from time to time in the school newsletter.
Staff are expected to set the example for pupils to follow in the manner in which they dress for work which should be suitable and appropriate for their role in school. Suitable clothing and footwear is expected for PE. All staff are responsible for supporting the school uniform policy.
