School Uniform

We understand that when pupils return to school from 11 August 2020, initially parents will want to wash school uniform more frequently than they would have done traditionally so we are encouraging the wearing of lightweight clothing (a school uniform of such which consists of a white top and black bottoms) and a jacket suitable for inclement weather.  A blazer and tie are not so easily laundered and not so good for protection from the elements so for the interim it is our intention to relax our approach to wearing these items.

When we fully re-open, we will again be promoting the sense of belonging that is provided by wearing our school uniform. When that time comes, pupils will be expected to wear full school uniform as described on this page.


 

Expectations

We encourage pupils to follow our school uniform policy by working closely with parents, pupils and our Parent Council. We remind pupils of our uniform policy at assemblies and in newsletters.

We aim to be consistent and fair. We understand there may occasionally be instances when it is impossible for your child to come to school in uniform. In these cases, please send a note with your child to explain the reason. Our priority is to see your child in school, learning and developing their social skills with their friends.

If a pupil has no justifiable reason for not wearing school uniform, we will contact parents by phone, text or letter. In extreme or persistent cases a pupil may be sent home to change into their uniform after contact has been made with parents.

What is the uniform?

The uniform consists of:

  • Black school trousers or skirt
  • A plain white school shirt with collar, sleeves and buttons to the neck
  • Kinross High School tie available from the school office at £5 for a junior tie (S1-S4) or £9 for a senior tie (S5-S6)
  • A black jumper or cardigan
  • Comfortable black footwear

In addition to the above,  we encourage all pupils to wear a school blazer. Please note that blazers must be worn by all S6 prefects.

The provision of school blazers is organised by the Parent Council. Our blazers are made from washable polyester so they are comfortable, light and easy to wear. The cost of a blazer is £40 which can be paid by cash or cheque (made payable to Kinross High School Parent Council.

There are a number of blazers available in stock and the Parent Council host blazer sales at throughout June and August. If you would like to buy a blazer but can't make any of the blazer sale dates, please contact KHSBlazer@gmail.com

The Parent Council would like to invite pupils who no longer require their blazer to donate them back to the school so it can be put to good use by a new owner. Anyone wishing to donate their blazer should hand it in to the school office.

PE Kit

Items of Kinross High School's PE kit are available from www.SchoolWearMadeEasy.com 

Please note, plain versions of the PE kit (i.e. without badge) are acceptable and are available widely from other stockists.

In addition to the white or purple shorts, there is now an option for boys to wear plain black shorts and girls to wear three quarter-length black leggings.

Comfortable sports trainers are also required.
