Pupils are expected to wear the following uniform when participating in school-organised events either inside or outside of normal school hours unless otherwise advised.

  • Black or grey pinafore, trousers, or shorts

  • Coat suitable for the weather conditions
  • School book bag or a bag of a practical size for carrying books and essentials for the school day

P.E. Kit

For P.E. lessons, apart from those in nursery, children require:

Plain black shorts, trainers, plimsolls, and a t-shirt (school logo optional) in the colour of the team assigned to them by their class teacher
Plain dark coloured tracksuit to wear on colder days
Drawstring bag to store P.E. kit with child’s name on

Hair, Jewellery and Accessories

The following expectations apply across the school:

  • No jewellery is to be worn to school except for a watch and small, plain studs if children have pierced ears. The studs need to be removed or covered by parents / carers or the children themselves with tape for P.E.
  • Watches can be analogue or digital and should have a face no bigger than a 50p piece. Smartwatches are not allowed to be worn at school
  • Nail varnish, false nails and make up should not be worn in school
  • Hairstyles should be appropriate for school. All long hair (shoulder length or longer) should be tied back. We ask that headbands or hair bobbles are small and in the school colours

At Parklands Primary School we are fortuitous in having generous families willing to give us both time and effort in order to support us.

With this in mind, we are lucky enough to have good standard pre-loved uniform donated, which in turn, we use to generate vital funds that go straight back to the children.

We hold pre-loved uniform sales at least every term, occasionally more frequently, depending on need and availability of items.

We always pay close attention to all of our pupils, and parent cohort and if any family unit are struggling, we are always on hand to support, guide and offer advice either directly or signpost to appropriate external agencies.

All school uniform items can be purchased from Havering Schoolwear. They are located at:
