We encourage all pupils to wear school uniform. This helps to instil a sense of pride and team spirit within our school. The school tie, which is green and gold can be purchased from the school office. Sweatshirts, polo-shirts, fleeces and reversible jackets can be ordered through the school office. There is an expectation that pupils wear the appropriate school code of dress from P1-7.
Listed below are recommended items for school wear:
skirt, pinafore, trousers, shorts grey, charcoal, black
shirt, polo shirt white
jumper, cardigan grey or black for P7 pupils
school sweatshirt grey with school logo
P7 pupils black (with school logo)
Please consider the changeable nature of weather conditions and provide your child with appropriate outerwear and footwear to suit. For safety reasons, and in order that the floor coverings of the school be preserved in a good condition, it is essential that suitable indoor footwear is provided. Please check indoor footwear regularly. Please provide your child with a draw-string bag to hold his/her change of shoes. Kit bags may be purchased from the school office. Children should not wear high heeled shoes as these cause safety concerns. We appreciate your cooperation in support of this.
An overall (old shirt) is also essential for practical activities. All clothing and footwear should be marked with the owner’s name or initials.
Physical Education (PE)
P.E.Kit consists of – White T-shirt which tucks into white, navy, grey or black shorts, standard length shorts, socks, flexible soft soled gym shoes with non marking soles (preferably with Velcro or elastic fastening for younger pupils) all kept in a gym bag.
With regard to safety, the wearing of jewellery (which we actively discourage) is not permitted during PE lessons. If your child has pierced ears, please ensure they can remove and replace earrings by themselves. Any child wearing earrings that cannot do this will be asked to put surgical tape over them for PE lessons. (Parents should provide a named roll of surgical tape for this purpose.) Shoe string strap tops are also discouraged for safety reasons as they can catch on gym apparatus.
The school requests that football team tops and designer garments are kept for home use as these can provoke conflict amongst the pupils. All clothing brought to school should be named or marked in some way, as it is difficult for children to distinguish their own clothing from that of others.
Some families may be entitled to a school clothing grant of £50 per year. More information about this can be found at: http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/schools/parents-carers/assistance/school-clothing-grants/
