Uniform and Equipment
Lakeside have a school uniform that all children should wear. Our uniform is based on the school colours of Deep Purple, Forest Green and Gold.
Children’s uniform should be selected from the following:
School logo T-shirt, white, forest green or dark purple T-shirt, shirt or blouse (T-Shirt without the logo can also be worn)
Grey/black shorts, trousers, skirt or pinafore
Purple/white, green/white or yellow/white checked dress
Purple/Green School logo sweatshirt, jumper, cardigan or fleece (items without the logo can also be worn)
White/grey/black socks or tights
- (NO HIGH HEELS or TRAINERS on the grounds of health and safety)
Please name ALL items of uniform and equipment. It may not guarantee its safe keeping but it really helps!
Uniform can be ordered via our online provider - Just-Schoolwear.co.uk
Physical Education Kit
Physical Education (PE) needs special kit and it must be worn on the grounds of health and safety. Children without proper kit, where possible, will be provided with spare kit held in school so they do not miss these activities.
(Tight leggings may be worn by children who need to cover their legs for religious reasons)
Draw string bag to keep kit in.
Trainers or Black pumps
Currently, children will be coming to school in their PE kit on PE days. As they will be in PE kit all day their normal school jumper, cardigan or fleece needs to be worn along with plain black, grey or navy tracksuit bottoms. Having their school jumper on every day, ensures that the children still look smart and it is clear they are Lakeside pupils.
We have balck shorts and white PE tops (plain) available for sale in school for £1 each. Please call the office to order and pay via ParentPay.
Children also need:
A ‘Bookbag’ with the school logo on to safely store and transport reading diaries, books and home learning to and from school. These are purple and available from Just-Schoolwear.co.uk
A school bag from another retailer without a school logo is also acceptable.
Pencil Cases and Personal Stationery
Children will be provided with all they need, however if children in Year 5 & 6 they have their own, named equipment it encourages them to be responsible.
We recommend that children do not wear jewellery, however we recognise that occasionally parents/carers may wish their children to wear jewellery therefore discreet items of jewellery may be worn such as: Items of religious significance, Watches (not expensive ones!) Studs for ear/nose piercing and so on.
If your child is to have a piercing please try to arrange this for the summer holiday so studs can be removed once back at school for PE activities.
All other items are considered unsuitable for school and indeed can be dangerous to others when playing. Any such items will be removed into the safe keeping of the school and returned at the end of the school day.
All jewellery must be removed for all P.E. activities this is for safety reasons. It is the pupil’s responsiblity to put it somewhere safe during this time. If it is not possible to remove the item the child may not be able to take part in the full P.E. session. Stud earings can be taped, using micropore tape- the children will be given a piece of micropore tape for them to tape over earings. There may be times that the child will not be able to take part in certain parts of the lesson with taped earrings.
Each half term , we will take lost property to be recycled . It is parent's and children's responsibility to check lost property regularly.
