A reminder to all that we are very proud of our school uniform and expect all pupils to make every effort to comply with our code.  

Pupils should arrive and leave the building in full uniform (not PE kit).
Please remember plain black shoes should be worn and leggings are only acceptable when worn with a skirt of an appropriate length. 

If for any reason you have arrived in school without a piece of uniform e.g. tie or skirt, items can be borrowed before registration from Mrs Fraser in Welfare if a suitable deposit is supplied.
Ms Sinclair

John Byrne National Drawing Competition
Thank you to everyone who entered the John Byrne National Drawing Competition. The standard was very high and you did your school proud.
