Kildrum Primary School


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/carers, pupils and staff were fully consulted. It is the expectation of Education and Families services that parents/carers 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, and
  • could be used to inflict injury to other pupils or to be used by others to do so.


Parents/carers of primary school aged children 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 is at the discretion of the Assistant Chief Executive, Education and Families. Information and application forms may be obtained from any school or First Stop Shop. Parents/carers 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. Whilst in general terms it would not normally be the policy of the authority to exclude a pupil from school solely on the basis of his/her dress, persistent refusal to respond to a reasonable dress code may be deemed to be a serious challenge to the head teacher’s authority and to be detrimental to the well being of the whole school community. In such circumstances a head teacher may justify the use of the school discipline procedure.


The Council wishes to minimise claims arising from the loss of pupils’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents/carers are asked to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing, jewellery, etc., are not brought to school. Parents/carers should note that any claims submitted to cover the loss of such items are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to have been negligent.


In Kildrum, our children wear school uniform which consists of royal blue jumper, cardigan or sweatshirt, white polo shirt or white shirt and school tie along with grey trousers, skirt or pinafore. In addition, wool cardigans, ordinary and reversible fleeces, school bags, gym bags, ties and scrunchies are available. These items are available from our official suppliers:
