Parents are asked to co-operate with the school in encouraging the wearing of the school uniform.
The uniform was agreed in consultation with parents, pupils, staff and the Parent Council. It incorporates a range of popular items of dress, e.g. sweatshirts, T-shirts. Wearing school uniform contributes to a positive school ethos and helps avoid discrimination and reduces peer pressure to wear expensive designer clothing.
Our school uniform is:-
Navy blue sweatshirts/jumpers/cardigans
Navy blue or grey trousers/skirts/pinafores
White school shirts/blouses/polo shirts
Navy gingham dresses (summer)
P7 children have a purple sweatshirt or cardigan. This is to recognise their senior pupil status and ensure that all children can find them if they need help and support. Embroidered school uniform with the Shieldhill Primary School logo is available from http://www.clothingattesco.com/icat/embschoolwear/
or from the Trutex shop

Plain uniform may be purchased from any school supplier e.g. supermarkets, department stores
A school’s reputation can also be enhanced in the local community by the wearing of school uniform and school security will be improved as it will be easier to identify intruders.
The appropriate clothing and footwear for indoor P.E. is a plain white T-shirt, shorts and gym shoes with non-marking soles. Every class will also participate in P.E lessons outdoors (in all weathers) and will therefore also need to have joggers and a sweatshirt, or a tracksuit, as well as a pair of outdoor trainers. These are necessary for health and safety reasons and your co-operation is requested to ensure that pupils are equipped to participate in the P.E. lessons. Football colours are inappropriate. Long hair should always be tied back for P.E. and all jewellery, including earrings, should be removed.
P.E clothing and footwear are usually kept in school in 2 labelled bags (one for indoors and one for outdoors). However, if clothing gets wet or no longer fits, it will be sent home for your attention. Children usually bring everything home for washing at the end of each term.
