School Uniform

Gavinburn Primary strongly insists the children wear school uniform. We want our pupils to be smart and easily identified as pupils of Gavinburn Primary encouraging them to feel part of the school community and contribute positively to the school ethos and school security.
Our uniform consists of:
School tie to be worn with white shirt/blouse
White or red poloshirt
Grey or red cardigan/jumper/school sweatshirt - NO hoodies
BLACK shoes

All uniform items will be able to be purchased online from Tesco Direct.  A sample will be able to be viewed at the school office.
Shoes must be practical at all times for movement about the school.
Shorts and a top are required for Physical Education as are gym shoes.
Unacceptable Forms of Dress
There are forms of dress that are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:
·         potentially, encourage friction (such as football colours)
·         could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)
·         could cause health & safety difficulties, such as loose fitting clothing,                    dangling earrings
·         are made from flammable material, for example shell suits in practical                  classes
·         could cause damage to flooring
·         carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco
·         could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do            so
