Uniform / Equipment and PE Kit
We adapted our uniform so that parents had a lower cost option that is easy to wash and still gives the school a sense of community. Your child/children will receive their complimentary school hoodie on their first day at school. We are very pleased to say that most parents are pleased with the adapted option and appreciate the change, as many informed us they were experiencing financial constraints due to the COVID pandemic and it will ease the burden on them.
This intervention will be consulted on if it looks to be more long term than expected. If pupils wish to wear black trousers/all black trackies/skirts/leggings with the hoodie they can, and all should wear black footwear. The prevalent asymptomatic transmission of the virus means that the highest standard of compliance with safety arrangements and practices is essential.
Clothing Grant Information is available here.
PE will take place, but we cannot use the changing rooms, so the PE department will advise pupils of suitable clothing for the activities on the days they have PE.
There will be outdoor and physical activities to support pupils’ health and wellbeing and to comply with the law and Scottish Government requirements as detailed here.
Pupils may bring their own bags and equipment to school but should not share or swop bags or equipment.
