Skye Primary School has a ‘Dress Code’ policy and we ask that our community support this by ensuring their child is in school uniform every school day. The uniform can be purchased from PSW. The school logo features on our polo shirts and jumpers which is important in establishing a strong sense of school identity and pride. The school colours are navy and sky blue with many different clothing options available to cater to the various seasonal needs and preferences of students.
Please ensure that your child’s name is marked clearly on all clothing and belongings including their schoolbag.
Parents, please note that the following are not permitted as part of the school uniform: Leggings, hoodies, jewellery – except for watches and one simple earrings, make-up or nail polish
Students are able to receive lunch orders on a Thursday. These are managed through the local Subway. Orders need to be submitted to the school office by Tuesday morning at 10am with the correct money.
