WHAT CAN MY CHILD WEAR AS UNIFORM?
T-shirts and polo shirts in white, red and navy blue with the school emblem may be ordered from Image Scotland but please note that it is perfectly acceptable for pupils to wear plain white T-shirts or polo shirts purchased from supermarkets or department stores.
We have a school tie which can be worn with a plain white shirt if you prefer.
Plain grey skirts and plain grey or black school trousers or plain navy blue jogging trousers are also acceptable.
Girls can wear a red or blue gingham checked summer dress.
Most of our pupils wear a navy blue Sciennes sweatshirt with the school emblem. Our P7 pupils wear a royal blue Sciennes sweatshirt.
Fleeces and jackets in navy blue, as well as schoolbags and gym bags, with the Sciennes emblem can be ordered through Image Scotland if you wish.
We prefer our pupils to wear school shoes in dark colours.
