Uniform & Equipment
At Dobwalls, we believe maintaining a standard of uniform is important and is conducive to creating the correct learning atmosphere as well as developing children's sense of belonging and pride. We are also conscious that our uniform is as affordable as possible hence we do not say branded items are essential.
Please see the table below for details of our uniform expectations.

Don’t forget to clearly mark all children’s clothing with their name – please!
Shoes - if you buy your children shoes with laces, please ensure they can tie them.
For safety reasons – no jewellery other than watches (not ‘smart’ watches) and stud earrings are permitted. Should any parent wish to discuss specific reasons for a child to wear jewellery, please contact myself directly. The children accept full responsibility of watches for their safe-keeping, although the class teacher will happily keep them secure during sports lessons.
- Hair accessories can be worn but should be unobtrusive and match school colours
- Hair below shoulder-length should be tied back
- Infant children must bring a book bag to school each day
- If bringing a rucksack, we ask for these to be smaller in size to help with space in our cloakrooms

- Mobile phones must be left in the school office if they are essential to be brought to school for pupil safety only
- Children should bring a water bottle with them each day containing water only
We have second hand uniform available at the office – please do pop into the office. If you have any uniform you could donate, please do drop it into the office.
Thank you for your support with uniform and ensuring our children look smart as they enter school each day, it really does make a difference to ensure everyone has a sense of belonging at Dobwalls and promotes good social values. We wish to promote a positive public image of the school and the way our children behave and are dressed can make an important contribution to this.
Pupil Premium Uniform Voucher System:
Please remember - if you are eligible for Free School Meals, you will be entitled to one of our school uniform vouchers (value £50 initially then £25 thereafter) to be used to purchase uniform items through the school. It is certainly worth checking to see if you are eligible even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 and currently has free school meals through the UFSM process (see school meals area). Vouchers are available from the school office.
If you are entitled to a uniform voucher and would like to place an order, your order MUST be placed via the school. Please ask at the school office for an order form or download one from the Information & Updates page and return it together with your voucher.
