William Murdoch Primary School pupils are ambassadors of the school. We believe our uniform fosters a sense of belonging, pride and identity. It sets high standards for pupils and makes an important contribution to a positive and purposeful working environment. We ask that parents/carers support us with the Uniform Policy and ensure pupils come to school with smart, clean uniform every day.

A high standard of dress is expected at all times. The school does not support fashion trends or any articles of clothing/hair styles, which may give cause for concern especially on health and safety grounds. Please ensure that all items of uniform are clearly labelled with your child’s name as the school cannot be held responsible for items that go missing.

The following uniform should be worn depending on which year group a pupil is in:

If a pupil wears any items of jewellery on religious grounds, this should be discussed with school in order that health and safety is maintained for all.
