St Helen's Primary & Nursery


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 ground 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.

The dress code for the school is the wearing the school uniform:

  • Grey trousers, skirt or pinafore
  • Navy V-neck jumper or cardigan
  • Blue shirt
  • Blue and gold tie
  • Black school shoes
  • Indoor shoes to be kept in school

Gym Kit:

  • Pupils are required to wear navy blue shorts and yellow polo shirt
  • Earrings must be removed before each lesson or covered with tape/plasters provided by parents

Please note, a full P.E. kit is required for each P.E. session. P.E. kit can be brought into school on a Monday and taken home on a Friday to ensure your child has the appropriate clothing in school at all times. All clothing and equipment should be clearly marked with your child’s name to prevent the mix up with school uniforms.


We appreciate your help in maintaining our high standards in having all children in full uniform at all times.
