School Dress Code
West Lothian Council has a Dress Code Policy promoting that children should wear school uniform. As a school, we encourage the wearing of uniform, and would value support from parents in order that we achieve the highest respect within our community. Football colours are prohibited by West Lothian Council and we would, again, call on your support to uphold this.
The Council will not be responsible for loss of or damage to pupils' clothing and personal belongings including mobile phones. Valuable items, including jewellery and unnecessarily expensive articles of clothing, should not be brought to school.
For health and safety reasons, we do not promote the wearing of inappropriate jewellery or make-up. Jewellery must not be worn during P.E. lessons.
Uniform is not required to be worn in nursery.
- Grey, Navy or Black trousers/skirt
- White shirt/polo shirt
- School Tie (Blue and Green)
- Royal Blue sweatshirt or cardigan (P1-6)
- Black sweatshirt or cardigan (P7 only)
- Indoor: t-shirt, shorts, indoor shoes/trainers
- Outdoor: t-shirt, sweatshirt/hoodie, joggers/tracksuit bottoms, outdoor trainers
Where to purchase School Uniform
Ties, polo-shirts, sweatshirts, cardigans are available from school as well as t-shirts and school hoodies. All apart from the tie are embroidered with the School Badge and Kirkhill Primary School. School hoodies are available for children to purchase for wearing as a jacket or on school excursions - these are not allowed to be worn in the classroom during the school day. Order forms will be sent out regularly and are also available from the School Office.
Whilst on clothing, we would ask you to ensure that any garments likely to be removed in school bear your child's name. This is particularly important with sweatshirts, hoodies, cardigans, coats, anoraks, gym shoes and Wellington boots.
Help with purchasing School Uniform
School Clothing Grants are available to parents in receipt of a qualifying benefit; application forms are available from the school or online. You can find further details of the School Clothing Grant application procedure on the West Lothian Council website
We do encourage parents/carers to donate old uniforms of an acceptable standard to school. Parents can then purchase them at a reduced cost.
Dress Down Days
Dress down days happen on the last Friday of each month and are noted in the annual calendar. For a small donation, pupils have the privilege of not wearing uniform.
