Glasgow City Council Welcome to Dunard Primary School & Nursery Class

Clothing and Uniform
  • Given that there is substantial parental/carer and public approval of a dress code, schools in this authority are encouraged to develop a school dress code. In encouraging a dress code policy, account must be taken of any proposals to prevent any direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or gender.

  • Any proposals will be the subject of widespread consultation with parents/carers and children. Against this background it should be noted that it is the policy of the Education Children and Families Policy Development Committee to encourage schools to develop an appropriate dress code policy.
  • There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:
    • potentially encourage faction (eg football colours)
    • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)
    • could cause health and safety difficulties, such as loose fitting clothing, dangling earrings
    • are made from flammable material – for example shell suits in practical classes
    • could cause damage to flooring
    • carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco
    • could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do so
  • Under no circumstances will children or young people be deprived of any educational benefit as a result of not wearing clothing conforming to the school’s dress code policy
  • Parents/Carers receiving Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (Income Based), Working Tax Credit (with a total annual income of less than £15,050*), Housing Benefit, or Council Tax Benefit will normally be entitled to monetary grants for footwear and clothing for their child. Approval of any requests for such grants made by parents/carers in different circumstances is at the discretion of the Executive Director of Education
  • Information and application forms may be obtained from schools and from Grants Section at Education Services headquarters
  • Glasgow City Council is concerned at the level of claims being received regarding the loss of children or young people’s clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents/Carers are asked to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing are not brought to school. Parents/Carers should note that the authority does not carry insurance to cover the loss of such items and any claims submitted are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to have been negligent
