Netherlee Primary School

At Netherlee Primary School we aim to provide a secure and welcoming environment where all aspects of the child’s learning are actively encouraged and developed.

Our main aims are to:

  • create an environment where children are happy and eager to learn, feel valued, supported, confident and secure

  • educate the whole child by making provision for learning based on the developmental needs of each individual child

  • ensure that suitable resources are available to carry out the planned curriculum to challenge and consolidate every child's progress

  • maintain an environment which provides equal opportunities for all

  • promote independence and self-discipline

  • develop positive attitudes of self-respect, value the needs and opinions of others and respect property and the environment

  • foster in our pupils interests which lead to a fuller life in future years

  • to develop good relationships within our community


Given that there is substantial parental and public approval of uniform, schools in East Renfrewshire are free to encourage the wearing of school uniform. In encouraging the wearing of uniform account must be taken in any proposals to prevent any direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or gender. Any proposals will be the subject of widespread consultation with parents and pupils. Against this background it should be noted that it is the policy of the Education Committee not to insist on pupils wearing uniform or having specialist items of clothing as a prerequisite to their attending and engaging in all of the activities of the curriculum.


 There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:

 Potentially encourage faction ( such as football colours)

Could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)

Could cause health and safety difficulties such as loose fitting  clothing, dangling ear-rings, shell-suits of flammable materials in practical classes

Could cause damage to flooring

Carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco,

Could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do so.


 Many parents do wish their children to wear uniform and the items are listed below:  

 Maroon blazer and badge School tie

Grey trousers/skirt (smart black, navy or grey trousers for girls) 

Grey or maroon pullover/cardigan

White, grey or blue shirt/blouse

School sweatshirt (available in grey or maroon)

White or school T-Shirt

Polo Shirt, navy, gold, white or maroon.


PE Kit

 The children visit the gym at least once a week. Each class is also timetabled for an atrium or pavilion visit once a week. They will also require their gym kit for this.  They should try to wear:

Navy shorts

Gym shoes (slip-ons if possible for those who cannot tie laces)

T-shirt/polo shirt

 All removable clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name.


Blazer badges, school ties, polo shirts, fleece, sweatshirts, cardigans, hats and shoe-bags are available from school clothing which is organised by the P.T.A. If you have any queries regarding these items please contact the school.

Our priorities and programme for action are detailed in our School Development Plan. We follow the “5-14” National Guidelines which are recommended by the Scottish Executive Education Department and East Renfrewshire Education Department’s policies. The main areas of the curriculum are:

  • English Language which includes Listening, Talking, Reading and Writing,

  • Mathematics which includes Number, Money and Measure, Information Handling, Shape, Position and Movement and Problem Solving and Enquiry,

  • Environmental Studies which includes Science, Social Subjects, Technology, Health Education, and Information and Communications Technology,

  • Religious and Moral Education which includes Christianity, Other World Religions and Personal and Social Development,

  • Expressive Arts which includes Art and Design, Drama, Music and Physical Education.

  • Primary Foreign Languages At present all children in the nursery and school are taught French by teachers who have been trained to teach a modern language in the primary school.


We offer a number of extra curricular activities at Netherlee. Please scroll down to find out what's available.
