Uniform

UniformSweatshirts and polo shirts, with the nursery logo embroidered on them can be purchased from Smiths, 36 Westblackhall Street, Greenock.

Children often take part in messy activities, so it is wise not to dress them in their best clothes! We ask that the children have soft shoes or slippers to change into when at nursery for safety and comfort. All clothing should be marked with your child’s name. Inverclyde Council’s Policy is that no jewellery should be worn by children when attending educational establishments. Children will not be able to take part in physical activities if wearing jewellery.

UniformsThe council is concerned at the levels of claims being received regarding the loss of children’s clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents are asked to assist in this matter by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing are not brought to the establishment. Parents should note that the authority does not carry insurance to cover the loss of such items and any claims submitted are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to have been negligent.

We would discourage the wearing of clothes which potentially

  • encourage faction (such as football colours)
  • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)
  • may cause health and safety difficulties (such as loose fitting clothes, tiers or strings around the neck, made from flammable material for example shell suits)  
  • could cause damage to flooring (such as studs) 
  •  carry advertising - particularly for alcohol or tobacco
  • may be used to inflict injury to other pupils/staff or be used by others to do so
