Our school uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to
the ethos of our school. We ask you to respect and support our policy and in
doing so ensure that your child comes to school wearing the correct uniform and
be of smart personal appearance.
We have thought carefully about our school uniform and have
chosen it to be comfortable and practical for primary aged children whilst also
being affordable for families.
The sweatshirt/cardigan/blazer is the only part
of the school uniform that requires the School logo, which means that many
other items can be purchased in supermarkets and children’s clothes shops, as
well as the Mapac online shop.
Once the stock of blazers, ties, tartan skirts and black PE
polo shirts are sold, they will stop being sold but will still remain part of
• Grey round necked sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo
o Purple blazer with school logo (with purple striped tie)
o Grey V-neck
sweatshirt, plain or with school logo (with purple striped tie)
• White polo shirt/blouse, plain or with school logo
• Black or grey trousers
• Black or grey knee length skirt/pinafore or purple tartan
pleated knee length skirt
• Black or grey socks or tights
• Sensible black school shoes
Alternate uniform for
• Black or grey shorts instead of trousers
• Purple/white checked dresses
• White t-shirt/black polo shirt, plain or with school logo
• Black plain PE shorts
• Dark coloured tracksuit bottoms
• Black plimsolls (for indoor PE)
• Trainers (for outdoor PE)
• Purple Thistle Hill PE Hoody with school logo (Optional*)
*The PE Hoodies with the school logo are optional, no other
hoodies are acceptable. As an alternative to a hoody, children can wear their
school sweatshirt/cardigan in the cold weather. The PE Hoodies are only to be
worn as PE kit and are not to be worn to and from school.
Book bags, Gym bags and accessories are entirely optional.
We do ask however, that children carry equipment in a small, sensible bag
rather than plastic carrier bags. During the summer months we ask all parents
to ensure their child brings a hat to school and also has applied sunscreen
before coming to school.
Children may not wear hats, caps, handkerchiefs, bandanas,
dorags, scarves, or other head coverings indoors at school. Exceptions can be
made for religious and/or medical reasons.
Hair should be neat, brushed and tied back if long. It
should not have tramlines, dyed elements, Mohicans or similar.
Earrings if worn must only be small studs and either be
removed by the child or left at home on PE days. Facial piercings are not
permitted. Necklaces/Chains/Watches: Necklaces and chains are not permitted.
Watches can be worn, but must be removed by the child for sporting activities.
No other sweatshirts, jackets, or sweaters are allowed to be
worn inside the building.
Trainers are not permitted for daily wear, they are for
outdoor PE only. Wellington style boots are only permitted on snowy or very wet
days. Luminous socks or highly patterned tights are not considered school
uniform. Heeled shoes are not acceptable.
Children may not wear bracelets armbands, or multiple rings.
Nails should be free of any artificial enhancements (varnish, acrylic, silk
wraps, press-ons, rhinestones, etc.) Make up is not permitted.
A non-uniform day allows a child to express his/her
individuality through their attire. The expectation is for the child to wear
garments that fit appropriately and are non-offensive. Any article of clothing
that is deemed inappropriate for a non-uniform day, will result in the child
being required to change into school uniform. Sometimes for school trips other
clothing is requested, please consider appropriateness for the weather
Health and Safety:
For safety reasons
jewellery must not be worn in school. Only watches and stud earrings may be
worn if necessary but they must be removed for P.E. lessons by your child.
