School Uniform

Pride in our school

At Burnside Primary School our children are proud to be members of our school and wear our uniform.  The uniform has been designed to be practical for a primary school while reflecting the high standards expected at school – it is to be worn with pride at all times. 


We feel that it is important that children learn to dress smartly and appropriately.  They grow up at Burnside understanding that most secondary schools and later in life, businesses, require smart, professional dress.


We look to parents to work with the school to ensure that children come to school always maintaining a high standard of dress and with at least a minimum of the correct colours in their clothing.


We value learning so highly that we do not send children home to change.  However, we hope that we do not have to deal with uniform transgressions.

Judgements about acceptability of uniform and appearance can only be made by school staff and ultimately the Head Teacher.
