Uniform and Equipment

Lakeside have a school uniform that all children should wear, this is as a result of consultation with parents/carers who overwhelmingly requested it.  This decision is supported by our governors and the School Council.


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
  • Grey/black shorts, trousers, skirt or pinafore
  • Purple/white, green/white or yellow/white checked dress
  • Purple/Green School logo sweatshirt, jumper, cardigan, fleece
  • White/grey/black socks or tights
  • Black shoes or sandals
  • (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, including school T-shirts, sweatshirts, jumpers, cardigans baseball caps, all with logos are available from the School Office. Orders may be placed throughout the year, please complete an order form for all items required which is available from the school office.  School does not profit from the sale of uniform, some local stores such as ASDA stock non logo items.

Physical Education Kit


Physical Education (P.E.) 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.


For Gymnastics and Dance all children need:

  • White T-shirt
  • White shorts

  • Draw string bag to keep it in.

Pencil Cases and Personal Stationery:


Children will be provided with all they need, however if 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 will not take part in the P.E. session.  It should be noted that even studs can cause serious injuries if a child is hit on the side of the head by, for example, a ball.
