Lower Park School Uniform
In addition to the information below on school uniform, our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) will arrange second-hand uniform sale each term and we welcome donations of used uniform which is still in good condition to sell on to other families.
Pupils are expected to wear the correct uniform at all times (other than specified non-school uniform days) while:
- On the school premises
- Travelling to and from school
- At out-of-school events or on trips that are organised by the school, or where they are representing the school (if required)
Parents and carers are expected to make sure their child has the correct uniform and PE kit, and that every item is:
- Clearly labelled with the child’s name
- In good condition
Parents are also expected to contact the head teacher, Amelia Lomas via email firstname.lastname@example.org if they want to request an amendment to the uniform policy in relation to:
- Their child’s protected characteristics
- The cost of the uniform
- To request support with the cost of school uniform
Please see the school uniform policy for further information.
** Updated information from Newsletter December 2022
We have been working with our uniform supplier to continue to keep our uniform costs to a minimum and to ensure that uniform supplied matches the new uniform policy. Following consultation with parents as a reflection of the current cost of living crisis, we have decided to keep the current logo to help families who may want to hand down uniform to siblings and friends and to allow us to continue to provide good quality second hand uniform. Alongside this, there is also the option of having a plain blue jumper or cardigan too, which many families have chosen to do. We have met with PSU and discussed the removal of unnecessary branded uniform. There will no longer be branded joggers, hats, caps or polo shirts.
The only branded items of uniform will be jumpers, cardigans, PE hoodies and PE tops, however, these are not compulsory, as plain options in the same colours are accepted.
Delivery to school is free, as is delivery in the summer term. If you do choose to have uniform delivered to home, PSU charge a flat rate of £3 delivery which stays the same even if there is a large amount of uniform delivered. They hand deliver the uniform, which ensures they can keep costs down, as postage via Royal Mail for large packages would be more costly and this would then affect prices.
To help families with sizing and to allow the option of purchasing uniform directly, we have decided to trial 'Pop Up Shops' each term, the dates for spring and summer term will be added to the school calendar, on the website, when they have been agreed and reminders sent in the Newsletter. The 'Pop Up Shop' will have a selection of sizes, any that aren't available on the day, can be ordered and delivered to school or via a prefered delivery option. The 'Pop Up Shop' will also have some of the uniform we are discontinuing at a reduced price should people wish to purchase these items. Finally, on the PSU website you will soon find that the uniform will be in one section called 'Uniform' and not separated into boys and girls sections. This is because we wish our uniform to be gender neutral and for parents and children to choose the items of uniform they wish to wear. You will also notice that the hoodies are now in the PE section.
