We believe that uniform creates a real sense of cohesion in our school and we hope that by wearing their uniform the children feel proud of being a member of the Parkside community.

School Uniform

P.E. Kit

Please be aware that children without a full PE kit will not be able to join in lessons.

Forest School/ Outdoor Activities

Wearing appropriate clothing for outdoor learning is essential in order for children to enjoy this aspect of our curriculum in all weathers.  Unfortunately, if they are not suitably dressed for the weather, it may not be possible for them to take part. 

We would like children to come to school dressed in their school uniform and bring their forest school clothes in a named bag ready to change into. If they have their own named waterproof trousers, please bring them too. It is really important that your child is appropriately dressed for a long period of time outdoors and in clothes that you are happy to get muddy and/or wet.

Uniform Suppliers

School Uniform can be ordered through the Price & Buckland online store.

Equality Statement

Under the Equality Act 2010 we have a duty not to discriminate against people on the basis of their age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation. 

We acknowledge that we have an obligation under the Human Rights Act 1998 to protect and to accommodate the rights of individuals to display their religious or cultural dress. Any request based on social or cultural grounds for pupils to wear other items of clothing, other than or in addition to the specified school uniform, discussed with the headteacher, will be permitted.

This policy has been equality impact assessed and we believe that it is in line with the Equality Act 2010 as it is fair, it does not prioritise or disadvantage any pupil and it helps to promote equality at this school. 

Second-hand & pre-loved Uniform

We appreciate that children can grow very quickly and can have growth spurts at different times of the year.  Having to continually purchase new uniform can be incredibly costly. Therefore our PTA committee now offers the facility for families to donate out-grown uniform and for parents to purchase items at a very low cost.  If you would be interested in donating or accessing pre-loved uniform, please contact the school office where the relevant contact details can be passed on to you. Our PTA run regular second hand uniform sales throughout the year which are communicated to parents ahead of time.
