Uniform

Here is a look at the first uniform item to have Maidenhill’s badge!

It is needing a little tweek to get it exactly right, but we thought you would like to see it.

Here is our Uniform Policy Statement.

Maidenhill Primary Uniform Policy Statement

We hope that this will be helpful to you.  We will share more details with you soon about how to order uniform items from our supplier.

Uniform Update

We are continuing to work on the design for our uniform. We appreciate that everyone will be eager to see the final look in plenty of time and we will post final details as soon as we possibly can. Many thanks for your patience.

Staff Appointments

Congratulations to Miss Alison Shaw and Mrs Annie Fraser who were both successful at interview this week and are joining the Maidenhill staff team. Miss Shaw will join us as Depute Head Teacher and Mrs Fraser will be our Senior Business Support Assistant. Both will be pivotal roles within our new Leadership Team and we wish Miss Shaw and Mrs Fraser all the best.

Maidenhill Uniform

After a lot of work by the pupils of Mearns and Kirkhill Primaries, Mr McDonald and the Lord Lyon, we can finally reveal the designs for Maidenhill’s school badge and tie.

We are very pleased with the choices and we are sure that they will make all Maidenhill pupils look very smart.

Lord Lyon, King of Arms

On Monday 11th March, the Lord Lyon, King of Arms,

visited East Renfrewshire. 

He met with pupils who have applied to Maidenhill Primary School, to give his advice and guidance on how to create a school badge that will describe the new school and stand the test of time.

It was incredibly informative and so interesting to hear about the history of designing badges and shields.

We are most grateful that the Lord Lyon was able to make time to visit as it has added another dimension to the process of creating the Maidenhill school badge.
