School Uniform

School Uniform


It is important for developing positive attitudes and good discipline that school uniform is worn at all times.


The accepted school uniform is grey school trousers/grey skirts or pinafores with school red polo shirts and grey school sweatshirts.   In warm weather red gingham dresses for girls may be worn.   The school sweatshirts and polo shirts can only be purchased online from Tesco and leaflets explaining the procedure are available from the school office.   Each child should have all clothing named and they should all have a pair of gym shoes permanently at school for wearing daily.



Aberdeen City Council can make a grant towards the cost of clothing and footwear for school pupils.   The current grant is £55 for primary school pupils and £60 for secondary pupils.
