Uniform

SCHOOL UNIFORM We are so proud that the vast majority of our pupils wear school uniform.  We feel that this creates a feeling of belonging and pride in the school.  It also removes the pressure on parents to provide expensive branded clothing. We have school sweatshirts, polo shirts, cardigans and PE kits for sale through our supplier Border Embroideries.  The sweatshirt and cardigans are red and have the school badge in black. Polo shirts should be white.  PE kits include black shorts and red t-shirts with the school logo in black.  Our P7s wear black sweatshirts as a mark of their special position of responsibility in our school. We are always looking for older uniforms to recycle and provide for children coming through the school. Please hand in school uniforms to the school office. Uniform can be ordered through the Border Embroidery website www.border-embroideries.co.uk. You can also purchase plain uniforms from many major supermarkets. Other uniform is as follows:
  • Grey or black trousers, shorts, skirts or pinafores
  • In summer, girls can wear red summer school dresses
  • White shirts and school ties are also acceptable
  • For art and craft, it is recommended that an old shirt is provided
  • Gym shoes for use indoors. These should be standard black plimsolls
  • A school bag to keep all school books, jotters and letters in

We politely ask that all uniform is labelled with first names and surnames so that we can recover if lost

PE Kit School PE Kits which include black shorts and red t-shirts with the school logo in black can also be purchased from www.border-embroideries.co.uk if you wish. However, the pupils do not have to change for PE. We politely ask that on the days that your child has PE that they come to school wearing appropriate clothing and shoes for participating in PE underneath their school jumper.
