School Uniform

The school uniform is:

  • White shirt
  • School tie
  • Grey trousers
  • Grey skirt/pinafore
  • Navy blue cardigan/v-neck jumper
  • Black shoes
  • Indoor shoes (black sandshoes).

Sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts and ties with the school logo are available for purchase at www.schoolwearmadeeasy.com and search for Riverbank Primary. Cost of the School Day is important to us at Riverbank, and so a plain navy blue jumper/cardigan, available to purchase at local supermarkets, is acceptable for uniform too.

Our uniform was agreed in consultation with pupils and parents.  It is expected that all children attending Riverbank Primary School will adhere to this dress code. 

PE Kit

It is important that pupils come prepared to learn and for PE this requires appropriate clothing. All jewellery should be removed. Pupils who are not participating in PE must have a note or a medical certificate. Pupils who are unable to participate in practical PE should still bring their kit to allow them to assist in the lesson by refereeing, keeping scores or assisting with the distribution of equipment. This ensures that they are still able to take part in some way in the work of the class and do not miss out on the knowledge and understanding of the course. 

There are forms of dress that are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:

  • potentially encourage factions (such as football colours)
  • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)
  • could cause health and safety difficulties (such as loose fitting clothing, jewellery)
  • could cause damage to flooring
  • carry advertising particularly for alcohol or tobacco
  • could be used to inflict damage on other pupils.

Clothing & Footwear Grants

Parents/Carers receiving Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (Income Based), Working Tax Credit (check link below for thresholds), Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit or Universal Credit (check link below for thresholds) will normally be entitled to monetary grants for footwear and clothing for their children. Information and application forms may be obtained from schools and at Glasgow City Council website.
