East Renfrewshire Education Committee, after consultation with parents, created a policy on school uniform entitled ‘Dressing for Excellence’. In encouraging the wearing of uniform, account must be taken to prevent any direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or gender. Parents of children receiving income support, family credit, housing benefit or council tax rebate will normally be entitled to monetary grants for footwear and clothing for their children. Information and application forms can be access from the link below.
In St Mark’s there is substantial parental approval of uniform, and all our children wear it. The items are as listed below.
Pupils should wear:
- white shirt
- black or grey skirt/trousers
- black v-neck jumper/cardigan
- black shoes (not black trainers)
Throughout the week, pupils participate in P.E. twice per week, once indoors and once outdoors, they therefore require a P.E kit for all weathers. P.E kit should be brought in and stored in school in a labelled bag, it will be sent home routinely to be washed.
Indoor kit required:
- black plimsolls
- black shorts
- either a red/white/yellow t-shirt
Outdoor kit required:
- trainers (old ones which can be kept in school)
- black joggers
- black fleece/sweatshirt
