The general policy of Balloch School is to encourage pride in appearance, neatness and a sense of belonging to the school community. Therefore we hope that you will encourage your child to wear school uniform at all times. Visitors to the school often comment positively on how smart our children are. The school colours are dark green and gold, worn with grey or black. Uniform consists of:
- Gold school polo shirt (P1-6) or Black school polo shirt (P7 Optional)
- Green school sweatshirt (P1-6) or black for P7
- Black/grey formal school trousers/shorts/skirt
- School Kilt
- Green school joggers or black/grey trousers
- Green checked dress and green cardigan
For PE and sports, pupils should wear their gold polo shirt and black sport shorts – (items of football strips are unacceptable). A note will be sent home the third time a child does not bring their P.E. kit.
For safety reasons, the wearing of jewellery, especially earrings are discouraged generally but if worn, must be removed for P.E. lessons.
For some more formal occasions, pupils are expected to wear the formal uniform of:
- White shirt
- School tie
- Black/grey trousers/skirt
On two occasions each session school uniform items are ordered by the B.F.G. (Balloch Fundraising Group). Order forms are available from the school. At other times items may be purchased from: Schoolwear Made Easy, Unit 4, 57 Harbour Road, Inverness IV1 1UF. Telephone 01463 222022.
School ties can be purchased directly from the school office.
Articles of clothing, including jackets must be clearly marked with your child’s name. The school cannot be responsible for the loss of any items.
