Uniform Guidelines

Dear Parents

As we are now in our last half term in school I know many start looking ahead to September. Many shops run offers on new school uniform at this time as year, so it is helpful to remind all of the uniform.

On the website there is updated guidance on uniform and more importantly our expectations. There is also a copy on the reverse of this letter.

There are no changes to the uniform expected and many children wear the agreed uniform. However sometimes throughout the year clothing that is not part of the agreed uniform starts to creep in as well as children not having the appropriate PE clothing. It is important that we follow the agreed uniform and by doing this helps us show that we are proud of our school. This is something that the school and governors are very keen to demonstrate and really appreciate your support with this.


Yours sincerely


Helen Hayes-Smith


Head of School

  • Blue striped or checked summer dress.
  • Navy blue or white polo shirt or white blouse / shirt. Plain or with Lakeside Primary Academy logo
  • Lakeside Primary Academy jumper or cardigan with logo, or plain navy blue jumper/cardigan.
  • Plain black sensible styled shoes.
For PE lessons, we ask the children to wear:

  • Black/ Navy PE shorts / skirt/ skort.
  • House t-shirt.
  • Spare socks for girls wearing tights.
  • Black plimsoles.
  • Outdoor trainers (non-marking soles). (Not required in Reception)

When children swim in KS2, we ask that the children bring a swimming bag with the following:

  • Girls – full swimming costume / Boys – short fitted swim shorts          
  • Towel
  • Goggles
  • Swimming hat
Jewellery / Make Up:

  • Just one small gold or silver stud may be worn in each ear.  This rule applies to both boys and girls.
  • No other jewellery may be worn.
  • Earrings must be removed by the pupil before PE lessons and swimming lessons.
  • Plasters cannot be worn over earrings for PE.  If children are going to have their ears pierced, we recommend they have them pierced at the start of the summer holidays to avoid disruption to their learning.
  • Make up and nail varnish is not permitted
Forest School:

  • Children in FS2 need to have a spare pair of wellies in school.
  • Forest Kits (Waterproof coat & trousers) are provided in school.

Please label each item of clothing with your child’s name especially the sweatshirts / cardigans.
