Uniform

At Lakenheath Primary School we firmly believe that ‘smart dress = a smart mind’.

Children should come to school dressed smartly and ready to learn.
 
The following uniform rules should be adhered to:

  • a purple school sweatshirt or cardigan( we will allow non-school logo jumpers/cardigans if this is the same shade of purple)
  • a white or royal blue polo shirt
  • grey or black trousers, shorts, skirt or pinafore (strictly no denim,). A purple and white checked dress may be worn in warmer weather.
  • Leggings may only be worn as an alternative to tights under a skirt
  • Flat, black shoes/boots (or fully black trainers). Sandals may be worn in the Summer Term with socks.
  • Tights or leggings under skirts should be plain and coloured grey, black or purple.
 
For PE children should wear:
  • plain family group coloured PE shirt with or without school logo (or a plain white T-shirt)
  • black shorts or black sports leggings
  • Black or navy-blue tracksuit/joggers may be worn in the winter
  • School sweatshirt or cardigan
  • A pair of trainers or gym shoes.
 The Lakenheath PTA do have selected items of second-hand uniform to purchase at very reasonable costs. They can be contacted by emailing: friends@lakenheath.suffolk.sch.uk
