Carbrain Primary School

Carbrain Cares


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, Skills and Youth Employment services that parents will be keen to support the dress code and written agreement may be sought.

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;
  • 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;
  • Could be used to inflict injury to other pupils or to be used by others to do so.

Parents in receipt of a clothing grant from the Council will be encouraged to purchase items which are in accordance with the school dress code. Approval of any requests for such grants in other circumstances are at the discretion of the Executive Director, Education and Families. Information and application forms may be obtained from any school or First Stop Shops. Parents are entitled to receive a clothing grant if they are in receipt of any of the following benefits: Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (income based), Employment and Support Allowance (income related), Universal Credit, housing benefit, council tax rebate.

A selection of good quality previously owned items are also available throughout the session from our ‘Sharing Station’. If you have any enquiries or wish to donate any items yourself please contact the school office for more details.
