Ambition, Confidence, Happiness and Respect.
We are delighted by the numbers of pupils who wear our school uniform and with the numbers of parents who support our dress code.
Following consultation with staff, pupils and parents, we reviewed our school uniform policy in 2022. Our new dress code is:
- Black dress trousers, black jeans, or black skirt (No shorts, cargo trousers, tracksuit bottoms, or leggings)
- White school shirt or blouse with school tie
- Plain white t-shirt with a black school-branded sweatshirt / jumper
- Black shoes or black trainers
There is no compulsion to have a school branded jersey if the school tie is worn and families can readily buy plain black v neck jerseys should they wish.
- Black blazer with school badge
The school will hold a stock of blazers for special occasions should groups of pupils need to wear one. These are also available to buy online – details below
- School fleece
School-branded sweatshirt / jumper
The school-branded Russell crew neck sweatshirt, Banner V-neck jumper and micro fibre fleece all feature a white version of our traditional school badge on a plain black background.
"The crew neck sweatshirt costs £13.75 for sizes up to age 11/12 and £17.75 for bigger sizes. The V-neck costs £19.99 for sizes up to size 32 and £25.99 for bigger sizes. There is also a school-branded fleece available. This costs £22.99. These items can be purchased online for free click and collect from any BE Schoolwear shop (stores include Kirkcaldy, Dundee and Edinburgh) or for home delivery charge of £4.99 for orders under £65.

We would also like to remind parents that the following items of clothing are NOT acceptable to our dress code and so should not be worn to school – jeans (other than black), tracksuit bottoms (except for PE), white trainers (except for PE), football tops, tops with offensive slogans, low-cut tops, large hoop earrings, facial piercing jewellery, brightly coloured shoes.
As a school we believe that uniform is an important aspect of school safety as it means that we can identify our own pupils very quickly. It is also important for letting our pupils share a sense of belonging to our school community. We believe that our pupils and our school are the best and we want them to wear their uniform with pride.
POINTS TO NOTE
- Appropriate jumpers/tops can be worn in class
- Outdoor coats should be removed in class
There may be circumstances that prevent pupils from wearing uniform – a crisis at home, broken washing machine, not staying in the home where the uniform is kept etc. In these cases, the pupil should bring in a note for that day. This should be countersigned and dated by their Guidance teacher.
