School Uniform

The wearing of school uniform is strongly recommended.  It promotes pride in the school and illustrates that we are all an equal part of the Kirkhill team.  The wearing of football strips is not permitted and fashion logos are discouraged.  We would ask for your support in this matter by ensuring your child wears our school uniform.  All school clothing should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

The school badge which is on our sweatshirts, polo shirts and all weather jackets depicts the spire of Nigg Kirk Church on top of the hill.  The spire can be seen from the school grounds.  The water on the badge depicts the River Dee at the bottom of the hill.  The school badge colours represent grey for the granite used in the original buildings of Kincorth, green for the shrubbery of the “Gramps”, yellow for the gorse and broom growing there, and blue for the River Dee.

Purple sweatshirt, comfortable trousers, skirts. The sweatshirt replaces the traditional smocks which were very restrictive during outdoor play. The sweatshirt also makes the nursery the same as the rest of the school. Smocks and aprons are still worn for messy activities and are provided by the school.

All sweatshirts, polo shirts and jackets are available from Work and Corporate Wear Solutions, George Street, Aberdeen.

Gym bags supplied by the same company are available from the school and are on sale throughout the year.  Good quality inexpensive trousers, skirts, gym shoes, shorts etc. can be purchased at a reasonable price in local stores such as Asda.

Gym Kit

White/black shorts or black cycling shorts (Bermuda shorts are not worn as they can lead to accidents, getting caught in apparatus etc.)

White/black gym shoes/trainers (no outdoor or black soled trainers should be worn in the gym hall).4

Art and Design

An old shirt or overall should be provided for art/clay/printing work to avoid children’s clothes being marked.  Aprons are provided for Nursery and P1 learners.

Jewellery

Jewellery should not be worn in P.E. for health and safety reasons.  Jewellery of any value should also be kept at home to prevent loss or theft. Earrings should be removed or taped for P.E.

Shoes

Children enjoy running around – high heeled shoes can make this a dangerous practice.  We would ask that parents/carers take this into consideration when purchasing school shoes.
