For PE, the uniform is blue t-shirt and black shorts. Items for the PE uniform can be bought from the school via ParentPay, and the pupil can collect the items from the PE department.
Renfrewshire Council encourages each school to adopt a dress code and for any proposed changes to be discussed with parents, pupils and the parent council. The council supports an agreed dress code because of the benefits it brings, including improvements in safety, security, discipline, ethos, community spirit and a decrease in bullying and expense for parents.
Some types of clothing will not be allowed in school for reasons of safety, decency or indiscipline. Types of clothing which will not be allowed include:
clothes which are a health or safety risk
clothes which may damage the school building
clothes which may provoke other pupils
clothes which are offensive or indecent; and
clothes which encourage the use of alcohol or tobacco, or other inappropriate substances.
Pupils will not be deprived of education, any benefit or access to examinations because of not wearing school uniform.
In the interests of health and safety, of both individual and others present, all jewellery, including body jewellery, must be removed before taking part in physical education lessons or physical activities.
