We aim to promote a high standard of dress and appearance at Clyde Valley High School. To this end, we expect that all pupils will dress in accordance with our dress code. The main supplier of our school uniform is Academy Uniforms LTD.
Our uniform consists of:
- Dark Blue Blazer (compulsory). No denim jackets or tracksuit tops. All outdoor jackets, with the exception of the blazers should be removed in school and placed in lockers.
- Black trousers for boys and black skirt/trousers for girls. Shorts, denims, black jeans or leggings should not be worn. Skirts have to be of an appropriate length (the rule agreed is that if a girl stands up straight with her hands by her side, her finger tips should be above the hem of the skirt – otherwise it is too short).
- White school shirt (which buttons to the neck) and a school tie. (Polo shirts and sweat shirts are no longer acceptable). Ties may be purchased at any time from the school office.
- Appropriate plain black footwear preferably shoes, or black trainers, only.
- A plain black top or jumper may also be worn in colder weather. All outdoor clothing must be removed in school (with the exception of the blazer) and placed in lockers.
- For PE, pupils are required to bring trainers, black/navy jogging trousers/shorts (no logos) and a plain white t-shirt or polo shirt with school crest.
- Fashion accessories (e.g. large earrings, large belts, chains, excessive jewellery) will not be acceptable in school.
- There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in school on Health and Safety, moral or other grounds and are not allowed. Such items are those which:
- Could cause health and safety concerns such as loose fitting clothing, dangling earrings, shell suits and jackets of flammable material.
- Potentially encourage faction (such as football colours)
- Carry advertising.
- Could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or slogans which might be regarded as political or carrying a questionable moral message).
- Could be used to inflict injury on other pupils or be used by others to do so.
- Valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing or jewellery should not be brought into school. Smart phones/MP3 players should be switched off and out of sight in class and on the way to class. Such items are brought to school at the owner’s own risk – the school does not have insurance for the loss or damage of such items.
- All pupils should also have a school bag. Please ensure the bag can hold jotters, books, and PE kit as necessary.
