Uniform Update 28 October 2020                                                                   

Dear Parent / Carer

Just a reminder that as from the end of last term have moved to wearing uniform all week with no structured option to dress down on Fridays.

However we recognise students may not be in uniform at certain times:

  1. Due to the pressure of washing / cleaning

Or

  1. The student may have PE on their timetable that day

We remain committed to being flexible and supporting families but also want to maintain a reasonable standard of uniform during this difficult period.  If for any reason your child is not in full uniform on a particular day could we respectfully ask that you email us or write a note requesting an exemption for the number of days required.

It is also our preference that students do not wear partial uniform and would request if they are unable to wear the complete uniform they wear non-uniform entirely and request an exemption to be out of uniform until you are able to comply. We also have non –uniform expectations and students are not permitted to wear ripped/ torn clothes, clothing with inappropriate logos, Football scarves and colours and crop tops or other revealing clothing.

We will continue to monitor the overall standard of uniform and will contact you if we have any concerns.

Finally, we realise that some parents have come under financial pressure due to the Covid 19 pandemic and we are very keen to help. You may be eligible for a clothing grant. Please follow the link below.

There is now also a parental initiative across all Midlothian schools to support uniform swaps through a Facebook site called Midlothian School Uniform Swap Shop. You just need to ask to join and either offer uniform or request uniform items.

I am also happy to be contacted directly in confidence if you need any support from the school.

Many thanks for your continued support of the school.
