Uniform

 

Aboyne Academy has an established school uniform and all pupils are expected to identify with the school by wearing the uniform. The uniform assists with security in the school building and grounds. The uniform would make it easy to identify people who should not be on school property. Our pupils are very good at respecting the uniform policy.

Pupils are expected to be cleanly and tidily dressed and should note that certain items of clothing are unacceptable. These include denim jeans as described above and jackets, tracksuits, surfer shorts and T-shirts or sweatshirts decorated with slogans, offensive wording or designs. Hats 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 £100 per year (1st April to 31st March) for each child.  More information about this can be found at: https://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/schools/school-info/assistance/school-clothing-grants/
