All North Lanarkshire schools must have a dress code which encourages pupils to dress in a way which is appropriate to attendance at school. This dress code must not lead to direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, gender or disability. Prior to drawing up the dress code the parents, pupils and staff were fully consulted. It is the expectation of the education authority that parents will be keen to support the dress code and written agreement may be sought.
Some sizes of uniform are available from the school office.
Clothing which is unacceptable in school under any circumstances includes items which:
- could potentially encourage factions (e.g. football colours)
- could cause offence (e.g. anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)
- could cause health and safety difficulties such as loose fitting clothing, dangling earrings, and other potentially dangerous jewellery – please note there is a requirement that all jewellery is removed prior to undertaking physical education activities
- are of flammable materials which may be a danger in certain classes (e.g. shell suits)
- could cause damage to flooring
- carry advertising in particular for alcohol or tobacco and
- could be used to inflict injury to other pupils or to be used by others to do so.
Suitable clothing for PE classes
Shorts, T-shirt and soft shoes are recommended clothing for PE. Pupils will be told the regular PE times for their class and should bring their ‘kit’ for each lesson. On any occasion, if you consider it unwise for your child to take part in PE, a note must be sent to school asking for the child to be excused and the reason stated.
For safety reasons all jewellery must be removed for gym lessons.
If a child regularly forgets the necessary clothing and footwear for PE, you will be contacted to ensure you are aware of this situation and you will be asked to assist in reminding your son/daughter of the ruling. All pupils who are not taking part in a lesson (for any of the above reasons) will be supervised.
In Auchinloch Primary, the wearing of school uniform is actively encouraged.

Red sweatshirt with school logo
Grey trousers, skirt or pinafore
Red and grey striped tie

The wearing of the school uniform helps to create an identity with the school and can also be useful in matters of safety and security.
ALL ARTICLES OF CLOTHING AND PROPERTY SHOULD BE CLEARLY LABELLED WITH THE CHILD’S NAME.
