As a school we take pride in our appearance. We have a uniform that reflects the needs of our active curriculum whilst taking steps to keep costs reasonable.  Our uniform shows that we are all part of the Larkholme family and fosters a strong feeling of belonging amongst the children.  Pride in appearance is encouraged at all times.

Aims and Objectives

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 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.

We ask all parents / carers who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform in good repair.  We have a stock of pre-loved uniform that can be purchased from the office with a donation to school.  Our PTFA will also hold regular preloved uniform sales throughout the year.


All jumpers, cardigans, sleeveless tops, ties, fleece jackets, PE polo shirts, navy shorts, PE sweatshirts, jogging pants, reading folders, and PE bags can all be purchased at S & P Separates in Fleetwood or Bispham Clothing.  Items, without the school logo on them, can also be bought at other local outlets as long as they are the correct colour and style.


Pupils are to come to school wearing their PE kit on their PE days, as well as when they have outdoor learning sessions and school trips. Class teachers will keep you informed of these days. On these days pupils should have long hair tied back and should not wear any jewellery.


It is important that all clothing is labelled with the child’s name, so that it can be identified if lost.   We do have a lost property box at school so if your child’s clothes are named they can be easily reunited.  At the end of each half term, any lost property will be put out on display, with lost items for collection.  Thereafter, any unallocated items will be donated to charities or sold on through the PTFA pre-loved uniform sales.


Hairstyles are an important part of our children presenting in a uniform and neat manner.  We request that hair bobbles and clips be plain and children’s hairstyles should be appropriate for school.  It is not permitted to have designs shaved into very short haircuts, and all hair must be of the child’s natural colour.  Children with hair longer than shoulder length must have their hair tied back at all times.  This is for the health and safety of children during class lessons and during PE.


To avoid accidents and distress caused by loss (accidental or otherwise), we must insist that jewellery is not worn in school.  Children may however wear a wristwatch, providing it is not a smart device.  Only small, stud earrings are permitted and parents are requested to have their children’s ears pierced at the beginning of the summer holiday so that they have healed for the start of the new school year.  Earrings and wrist watches must be removed for PE lessons; alternatively, earrings can be covered with surgical tape provided from home.


The Governing Body implements the school uniform policy.  It considers all representations from parents regarding the uniform policy and liaises with the headteacher to ensure that the policy is implemented fairly and with sensitivity.  It is the governors’ responsibility to ensure that the school uniform meets all regulations concerning equal opportunities.  Governors ensure that the school uniform policy helps children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hard wearing, safe, and practical.
