Clothing and Uniform

Given that there is substantial parental and public approval of a dress code, schools in this authority are encouraged to develop a school dress code. In encouraging a dress

code policy account must be taken in any proposals to prevent any direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or gender. Any proposals will be the subject of widespread consultation with parents and pupils. Against this background it should be noted that it is the policy of the education committee to encourage schools to develop an appropriate dress code policy.
 There are forms of dress, which are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:
*       potentially encourage faction (such as football colours);
*       could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans
*       could cause health and safety difficulties, such as loose fitting clothes, dangling earrings;
*       are made from flammable material e.g. shell suits in practical classes;
*       could cause damage to flooring;
*       carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco; and
*       could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do so.
Under no circumstances will pupils be deprived of any educational benefit as a result of not wearing clothing conforming to the school’s dress code policy.
Parents of children receiving Income Support, Job Seeker Allowance (Income Based) Working Tax Credit (with a total income of less than £15,050), Housing Benefit, or Council Tax Benefit will normally be entitled to monetary grants for footwear and clothing for their children. Approval of any requests for such grants made by parents in different circumstances is at the discretion of the director of education. Information and application forms may be obtained from schools and from Grants Section at Education and Social Work Services headquarters.
Glasgow City Council is concerned at the level of claims being received regarding the lost of pupils’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents are asked to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessary expensive items of clothing are not
brought to school. Parents should note that the authority does not carry insurance to cover the loss of such items and any claims submitted are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to have been negligent.
Our School Dress Code
Children are strongly encouraged to wear school uniform. Wearing school uniform promotes a feeling of belonging to the school and pride in being a member of the school community.

  • White shirt/St. Paul’s tie

In line with the City Council, anti-sectarian policy, children may not carry school bags/packed lunch boxes with Football Club emblems or colours.

 **Please note that in line with our current COVID-19 Risk Assessment, if children are taking their lunch to school, this must be placed in a plastic or paper bag. We are unable to facilitate the use of reuseable lunch bags during this time. 
Ties, badges, cardigans, jumpers and reversible fleece/rain jackets and P.E. kits are available to purchase from the school office.
