Please note that Mearns Primary PTA are no longer promoting one company for uniforms but purely as a service to parents, we are providing details and links to a number of companies where logo’d uniforms can be purchased. We are also holding a uniform evening in June at the school which some of these companies will be invited along to and parents will be able to see what is available and purchase uniforms for the nursery and school.

The PTA will get a %age from some companies on Mearns Primary Uniform sales as a good will gesture for us promoting them.

Join us on Tuesday 13 June 2017 from 6pm – 8pm for our first Uniform Evening of the year.

More information can be found here: PTA Uniform evening flyer 13 June 17

Come along and purchase logo’d uniforms from local companies all under the one roof and take the stress out of the madness surrounding your children going back to school.
