School Uniform

The aim of our school clothing policy is to ensure that all pupils are smart, tidy and ready to learn. If our pupils have a positive attitude to their learning, they will make better progress, and school uniform helps with this as a sign of belonging and a visual expression of our standards. Sports or fashion gear is not allowed. We expect that pupils will follow our guidelines for the clothing which they wear on the way to and from, as well as in school.


Pupils attending North Lakes School will need:-

  • A purple North Lakes School sweatshirt and a white North Lakes School polo-shirt.
  • A purple North Lakes fleece cardigan is also available in summer.
  • For PE, children need a white t-shirt embroidered with the child’s team name and colour.
  • This specific uniform is on sale at Lakeland Embroidery and Sam Scott’s, Penrith.
  • Some good quality second hand stock is also available on request in school.
  • A black North Lakes School full zip fleece is available as an extra option from school (£12.00).


We ask that children wear black or grey plain coloured trousers or a plain black or grey skirt of reasonable length – no jeans, please. Tracksuit bottoms with stripes, wording or logos are unacceptable. Plain tracksuit-type bottoms, without elasticated ankle cuffs may be necessary for individual children. Black, low heeled shoes are required to wear in, and to and from school. Trainers are needed for playtimes especially when the field is in use, but trainers are not permitted in school.  In the summer, girls may wear a purple gingham checked dress.  Boys may wear dark coloured shorts, not sports styled or beach type casual wear, please.


Each child will need a designated P.E. kit and this includes: black shorts, a white tee-shirt embroidered with the child's team name/colour, black plimsolls (slip-on type) for indoors, and trainers for outdoor PE.


Jewellery, other than standard watches, should not be worn. Nail varnish, acrylic nails, and extreme haircuts including mohican/mohawks and tramlines are not allowed.  Children with pierced ears should only wear studs to school, and these must be removed by the child for PE, Games and Swimming. Long hair needs to be tied back securely for these activities.  Thank you.


We ask that all school clothing, including outdoor clothing and P.E. kit, be very clearly labelled with your child’s name.


Parents who choose to send their child to North Lakes School and sign the Home School Agreement are accepting the school’s clothing policy. Your co-operation in this matter is very much appreciated.


Equipment in School

All stationery is provided by school - no pencil cases or stationery are needed from home please.  A PE bag is provided by the Parents’ Support Group and a school book bag is required, which may be purchased from school. No toys or collector cards should be brought into school.  Thank you!
