School Uniform


At Larkrise Primary School, we take pride in our school uniform. Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform;

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
  • is practical and smart;
  • identifies the children with the school;
  • prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class;
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
  • is designed with health and safety in mind.


It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.

NB. Trousers and shorts worn in school for uniform must be appropriate uniform style material and ‘cut’,i.e. tailored style, not sportswear or fashion styles.

All uniform items can be purchased from One Stop School Gear, however items of school uniform can also be purchased at local supermarkets, or high street shops, meaning they can be much more affordable for families.  The logo’d uniform, especially the jumper, is a popular choice but is not compulsory.  

The Hive’ has a pre-loved uniform shop.  Contact our Child and Family support worker or come to a drop-in to find out what’s there.
