Shawhead Primary School

School Dress Code


The designated school uniform is a school sweatshirt, white polo shirt and either grey or dark coloured trousers or skirt. Pupils are encouraged to wear school uniform as it helps create a sense of belonging and a positive attitude to school as a place of work.

The wearing of football strips and team colours is actively discouraged.

Pupils are asked to wear soft indoor shoes on the carpeted area, and painting shirts should be provided for art work.

As all school sweatshirts look exactly alike, you are strongly advised to put your child’s name on this and on other articles of clothing.

Parents will have an opportunity to purchase school sweatshirts/fleeces etc. on an annual basis although the school generally has a small stock available all year round.
