St.Ambrose High School

North Lanarkshire Council

School Uniform

All North Lanarkshire schools must have a dress code which encourages pupils to dress inuniform1

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 learning & leisure services that parents will be keen to support the dress code

and written agreement may be sought.

Dress code requirements are as follows:

  • white shirt and school tie  (available from the office – junior school tie £5 & senior school tie £7)
  • black trousers/skirt
  • black shoes
  • black v-neck jumper (if required)
  • school blazer with badge

For Physical Education:

  • Plain white t-shirt
  • black shorts/black jogging (tracksuit) trousers
  • training shoes (change from outdoor footwear)
  • black sweatshirt (if required)

Clothing which is UNACCEPTABLE in school under any circumstances include 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 (eg 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.
