Balornock Primary Dress Code
Our school uniform is something that we are very proud of. It gives everyone the sense of being part of our school community. In addition it helps young people develop a pride in their appearance and helps them to recognise the importance of coming to school ready to work and learn. It also enables staff to easily identify our pupils when we are in the playground or out on activities. This helps us to keep everyone safe.
Here the uniform which has been agreed by our Pupil Council, Parent Council and Staff.
The school uniform is:
- White shirt
- School tie
- Navy/black trousers
- Navy/black skirt
- Yellow Polo Shirt
- Blue sweatshirt/cardigan/jumper
Sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts and ties with the school logo are available for purchase from BE Schoolwear, 35B Argyle Street Station, Glasgow G2 8AH.
It is expected that all children attending Balornock Primary School will adhere to this dress code.
It is important that pupils come prepared to learn and for PE this requires appropriate clothing. All jewellery should be removed. Pupils who are not participating in PE must have a note or a medical certificate. Pupils who are unable to participate in practical PE should still bring their kit to allow them to assist in the lesson by refereeing, keeping scores or assisting with the distribution of equipment. This ensures that they are still able to take part in some way in the work of the class and do not miss out on the knowledge and understanding of the course.
There are forms of dress that are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:
- Potentially encourage factions (such as football colours)
- Could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)
- Could cause health and safety difficulties (such as loose fitting clothing, jewellery)
- Could cause damage to flooring
- Carry advertising particularly for alcohol or tobacco
- Could be used to inflict damage on other pupils
