School uniform

The Governing Body of Kingswood Parks Primary School has decided that all children should wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos and is based on the following principles:

  • promotes a sense of pride amongst the children in the school;
  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging;
  • is practical and smart;
  • identifies the children with the school;
  • is not distracting in class (as fashion clothes might be);
  • makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • is regarded as suitable, and good value for money, by most parents;
  • has been designed with health and safety in mind;
  • impacts positively on attitudes to learning

 

School Uniform:

This consists of:-

  • Kingswood Parks sweatshirt or cardigan;
  • Pale blue polo shirt;
  • Grey, navy or black school trousers/shorts or skirt – no jeans or leggings please:
  • Sensible black school shoes – not high heeled!

P.E. Kit

For reasons of both Health and Safety and personal hygiene children must change for every PE lesson. We also ask our staff to change for PE. Our PE kit consists of:

  • Black shorts;
  • White Kingswood Parks T-shirt;
  • Trainers.

P.E. T-Shirts with the school logo can be purchased at the school office.

Best practice requires that children take part in indoor PE lesson in their bare feet. In cold weather, children will need to bring navy blue or black long trousers (tracksuit bottoms or similar) and a sweatshirt to wear over their PE kit.

Child must remove earrings for PE lessons, or if this is not possible, provide suitable tape or plasters to cover them.
