John Butler Primary College

College Uniform

All students are required to comply with the John Butler Primary College dress code policy unless an exemption has been granted.


The John Butler Primary College community believes a dress code:


  • Establishes and enhances the image of the school.
  • Establishes college spirit and teamwork.
  • Ensures students are safely dressed for specific school activities.
  • Encourages equality among students.
  • Prepares students for work, as many work places have dress and safety codes.


Students must wear their uniform appropriately to and from school.

An inclusive, engaging and inspiring place of learning, where every student is supported to achieve their personal best every day.

The John Butler Primary College (JBPC) uniform comprises of:
