COVID-19 UPDATE – Ideally, we are expecting all students to arrive to school wearing:
- White shirt (with collar) or
- white or black polo shirt
- Formal black trousers/skirt/shorts
- Craigmount round neck sweatshirt or black v-neck jumper or cardigan with logo
- Black footwear only.
We appreciate the current circumstances and do not want to add stress to households so pupils can be presentable in plain school colours (black and white) or Craigmount logo attire.
If students have PE on their timetable, appropriate PE kit should be worn to school as changing is currently unavailable.
A jacket is advised as break & lunch time will be outdoors, as will some travel between classes. Clothes should be laundered daily, as such ties and blazers are not currently expected.
Please note that we are seeking to phase in the above uniform code so be aware when purchasing future items.
Craigmount High School believes there are many advantages in having a clear dress code,
these advantages include:
- Encouraging a sense of belonging to and pride in the school
- Encouraging a purposeful attitude to school work and extra curricular activities
- Enhancing the image of the school
- Improving safety in the classroom and in practical areas such as Science labs
- Improving school security through easy identification of intruders
- Convenience for Parents
