We do lots of enjoyable and messy activities in Nursery, and inevitably the children will get dirty. For this reason we require children to wear a school uniform. We also ask that parents and carers provide a spare set of clothes which must stay on your child’s peg. These clothes do not have to be uniform, but they allow us to easily change your child should they have an accident or get wet. The clothes should be in a carrier bag labelled with your child’s name (no rucksacks, please) Please also supply a change of underwear, in case of ‘accidents’.

The school uniform for Lark Hill is as follows:

  • Purple sweatshirt or cardigan
  • White polo top or white shirt (non-logo)
  • Grey or black trousers or skirt
  • All black school shoes or all black trainers
  • In the summer purple gingham dresses can be worn
  • Jeans or fashion trousers are not allowed
  • No logos on uniforms except for the school logo
  • No large bows in hair
  • Stud earrings only and a watch. No hoops or necklaces
