School Uniform

Uniform

At Eddleston we actively promote the wearing of school uniform. This has many practical advantages relating to safety, cost and appearance. Parents and children are actively encouraged to support this both by School and Scottish Borders Council. Forms for financial assistance are available from the school or Scottish Borders Council, please do not hesitate to contact the Headteacher in confidence if you would like to discuss help with clothing or school lunches.

The official school colours are maroon and gold. Children are expected to wear the school colours.

Uniforms can be ordered online from our local supplier. Go to website www.border-embroideries.co.uk for school sweatshirts and fleeces with embroidered school crest, P.E. T-shirts with school name and polo shirts. Delivery is free if you have your ordered delivered to the school.

Children should wear shorts and school T-shirt for all P.E. activities. As P.E. or Movement activities take place more than once a week, it would be useful if P.E. kits could remain in school. During P.E., long hair should be tied back and jewellery including earrings and watches must be removed.

Indoor shoes are required so that children can change when they come in from the playground, in order to keep up the standard of maintenance within the school. No slippers, thank you.

The school has its own netball, football and rugby strips.

All children’s school clothing should be clearly named so that it can be easily identified if mislaid.
