Bridge of Don Academy Comfort Closet

As part of Bridge of Don Academy’s drive to close the poverty related attainment gap and increase the health and well-being of all pupils the school have introduced free comfort closets.  Each Guidance teacher, along with the school office have a range of deodorants, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes and shower gels for any pupil to collect free if they feel they need.  Along with free sanitary products provided by Aberdeen City Council any pupil can approach the school office or guidance teacher and ask for any of the items should they need.   We look forward to pupils using this resource responsibly in the schools drive to bring equity to the school day.
