Policy documents evolve to respond to the needs of the specific young people in our care. We also need to take account of local and national priorities. Whilst we endeavour to upload up to date versions of each policy document, we work within a three year cycle when revising policy documents. It may be the case that our internal policy has evolved prior to the update of policy files that you can access here. However, we will strive to ensure that all documentation found here reflects changes made to policy in school as and when possible.

Among the items discussed at the meeting, item 4 is a uniform exchange programme. Please see details below:
Apparel Xchange is a social enterprise which tries to kit children out in an affordable uniform by reusing and recycling uniforms. They receive used uniforms from schools lost property and from parents. They check, wash and sell these garments at a small cost. The enterprise is trying to make children aware of the supply chain, their massive duty to preserve the planet, learn how to wash their clothes, put labels on them and hopefully with this knowledge make better choices. The enterprise has a Pop-up shop in the southside of Glasgow. For your information, attached is a flyer about the forthcoming Pop-up shop sale days.
Apparel Xchange’s contact details are:

The National Parent Forum for Scotland are encouraging all parents/carers to complete an important survey. They have asked that schools share the following message.
