TGS Uniform

We believe how our pupils dress is important and believe that wearing school uniform brings a positive approach to school ethos. We encourage all pupils to be smart in appearance by wearing school uniform each and every day.

Good behaviour is essential if The Gordon Schools is to meet its aims. It is central to our ability to go about daily business in a manner that recognises that the school is a community based on trust, involving the mutual respect of pupils, staff and parents.



At The Gordon Schools we believe that a high standard of behaviour allows good teaching and learning to flourish in a safe and healthy environment. To achieve this we need the involvement, support and co-operation of parents and carers. There are a number of disciplinary levels which are followed in circumstances where a pupil does not meet the standards of behaviour expected of a member of The Gordon Schools.



Ours school Visions of Together, Growing and Succeeding is at the core of promoting respect and safeguarding qualities for everyone in The Gordon Schools. This is supported in law by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and the Equalities Act (2010). This policy has just recently been refreshed and is available to view.



Mobile phones are now a part of the 21st Century technological society and The Gordon Schools does not seek, by policy, to ban their use outright. They can, when used appropriately, enhance pupil safety and provide opportunities to support learning & teaching.

It is recognised that parents/carers and pupils have the right, when necessary, to be able to make contact with one another via telephone. This contact would normally be through the school office.

It is accepted that in secondary schools the carrying of mobile phones to school is reasonable, provided the following code of practice, in conjunction with The Gordon Schools behaviour policies, with regard the use of mobile phones, is fully adhered to.



For most of our pupils, we feel that the setting of regular homework is good practice. Parents appreciate this regular contact with the school and welcome the opportunity to help reinforce skills being taught in class. Amounts of homework vary depending on the age and ability of pupils. Most pupils are given word work or a short passage of reading to prepare, sounds or spellings to practise, number work and worksheets for the revision of subject work.





The purpose and aims of the inspection process in evaluating the quality of learning and teaching in Scottish schools and education services. Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education (HMIe) was an executive agency of the Scottish Government, responsible for the inspection of public and independent, primary and secondary schools, as well as other types of educational establishment.

HMIE and Learning and Teaching Scotland (former non-departmental public body of the Scottish Government) were merged in 2011 to create Education Scotland who now perform formal inspections of educational establishments on a regular basis.
