Reception children need to bring their PE kits to school in a named bag which can be left on their peg. We will send these home as and when needed to be washed. The children in year 1 and above come to school dressed in their PE kits on selected days whereas reception get changed at school as this is part of our curriculum.
We ask that children with long hair tie it up with a hair band. Any bows, clips or hair bands should reflect that of school colours and be of a minimal size. Hairstyles should not be extreme (such as no shaved patterns in hair). Our school supports pupils with Afro textured hair to wear their hair in styles, which promotes the maintenance and upkeep. If beads are worn in this style, we request they be in school colours, such as black, white, grey and green where possible. We request that turbans or hijabs be black, grey or green.
Parents are asked to ensure that all clothing worn is clearly labelled with child’s name and is appropriate for a school environment (such as no jumpers or t-shirts on non-uniform days with logos that are not age appropriate e.g.Tiktok).
It is recommended that children have a green school book bag for transporting reading books, letters etc. between home and school when in Reception. These can be purchased from our school uniform shop https://shop.parklaneprimary.school/
If your child has their ears pierced, only small, plain studs are permitted. It is always preferable that your child’s earrings are removed on PE days. If this is not possible then please cover them with tape or send tape in to school for your child to cover them. It is current practice in the school that children are responsible for the removal and replacement of studs. Children, whose studs are not removed or covered, are unable to take part in P .E. lessons for health and safety reasons.
The shorts, t-shirt and drawstring bags are available from the Friends’ Association.
