Broomlands Primary School
Kelso - Scottish Borders
All uniform should be clearly named so that it can be easily identified if mislaid.
Pupils are actively encouraged to wear school uniform every day in line with Scottish Borders Council's School Dress Code. There is no doubt that wearing school uniform benefits the pupils.
Giving pupils a pride in and sense of belonging to their school.
Increasing the school’s profile in the local community.
Preventing competition between pupils over expensive fashion wear and helping to prevent bullying and victimisation of others on the grounds of what they wear.
Improving security in school and on school trips, because it is easier to identify who is a pupil in the school
Differentiates between staff and pupils.
More convenient to parents.
Fashion trousers, jeans, leggings, sports and brand named clothes are not part of our uniform and should not be worn to school. We ask for parents' support in this area. Outdoor shoes should be sensible and safe. Slip on and/or high heeled shoes are NOT appropriate. Tattoos, nail varnish and make up are not allowed. In the interests of safety, the wearing of fashion scarves and jewellery other than a watch and stud earrings, is not permitted. Hair should be natural colour and not dyed/highlighted. It would be advisable to have longer hair tied up.

It is important from an early age that pupils get used to changing for P.E. In good weather pupils may have P.E. lessons outdoors and will need extra clothing. P.E. kit should be left in school during the week and be taken home at the end of term or sooner if required. In the interests of safety, the wearing of jewellery of any description is not allowed. Children wearing earrings will not be permitted to take part in PE/Swimming Activities. Children considering having their ears pierced should wait until the summer holidays. All hair longer than collar length for both boys and girls must be tied up for P.E.
As many areas of the school have carpet we ask that pupils in P4-P7 change from outdoor to suitable indoor shoes (this can include gym shoes or indoor trainers or another pair of shoes). This helps maintain a clean environment within the school.
All pupils must change their shoes during inclement weather. Children wearing boots/wellingtons to school must bring a change of shoes for indoors. This includes P1 to P3.
Uniform can be ordered online from Border Embroideries at www.border-embroideries.co.uk In addition to the uniform listed above there is also a range of additional, non compulsory items. These can be found on the Border Embroideries website.
