Aboyne Academy has an established school uniform, and all pupils are expected to identify with the school by wearing the uniform.

The uniform also assists with security in the school building and grounds. Uniform makes it easy to identify people who should not be on school property.

A member of the Senior Leadership Team is at the pupil entrance every morning to welcome pupils and to ensure that they are in school uniform.

The standard uniform is:

Optional PE Uniform (House Colour T Shirts) are also available. Sports kit should not be worn outwith PE classes unless PE is period 6 in the day.

Pupils are expected to be cleanly and tidily dressed at all times and should note that certain items of clothing are unacceptable. These include denim jeans other than those described above, tracksuits, surfer shorts and T-shirts/sweatshirts decorated with slogans, offensive wording or designs. Hats or hoods should not be worn inside the school building.

In the summer months, the building can become hot and if pupils wish to remove their sweatshirt then they must be wearing a polo shirt or shirt and tie. Any pupil who chooses not to wear uniform may be required to sign out one of our stock sweatshirts for a day.

Aberdeenshire Council can, in some circumstances, provide a grant towards the costs of school clothing and footwear if you receive certain benefits. The grant is £150 per year (1st April to 31st March) for each child.
