In Carluke High School pupils are expected to take pride in their appearance and their school. The vast majority of Carluke High School parents have expressed their wish to see school uniform.
As a school we believe that it enhances the learning atmosphere and ethos of the school and as such we positively encourage pupils to wear school uniform.
In support of many parents' wishes, South Lanarkshire Council also encourages school uniform as it helps promote the identity of the school in the local community and fosters an ethos of sharing, and pride in the school.
We ask all parents/carers to support the school by encouraging your child(ren) to adhere to the agreed dress code and the wearing of our school uniform.
Equality of opportunity is an important aspect of the life of the school. Any proposals on the dress code and on what constitutes the school uniform will be the subject of discussion with the Parent Council and where appropriate consultation with parents, pupils and staff.
School uniform has a number of benefits including:
- Encouraging a sense of belonging and pride in the school
- Enhancing the school image in the community
- Discouraging bullying which may arise from pupils not having certain items of clothing or footwear
- Improving security on school trips through easy identification of Carluke High School pupils
- Improving school security by easy identification of intruders
