Glasgow City Council Welcome to Quarry Brae Primary School

School Uniform

Quarry Brae strongly insists the children wear school uniform. We want our pupils to be smart and easily identified as pupils of Quarry Brae 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 or blue shirt/blouse
Navy cardigan/jumper/school sweatshirt
Navy jacket
*Navy  Sweatshirt
*Yellow Polo Shirt
*Navy Hooded Sweatshirt
*Yellow T Shirt for P.E.
*Navy Fleece
***School badge
Our Primary 7 wear maroon jumpers and cardigins to show they are senior pupils
*A uniform order form is available from the school office if you wish to purchase
 any of the above items.
Shoes must be practical at all times for movement about the school that has many stairs.
Shorts and a top are required for Physical Education as are sand 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
Parents of children receiving income support, job seekers allowance (income-based), working tax credit (with NHS exemption), housing benefit or council text rebates sill 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 are at the discretion of the Director of Education. Information and application forms may be obtained from schools and from the Education Offices.
The Council is concerned at the level of claims being received regarding the loss of pupils’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents are asked to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily 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.
