Uniform Information

School Uniform


At Parkside Primary Academy all children are expected to wear school uniform.  Our uniform helps our children to feel a sense of identity and pride for our school community. Our uniform consists of:

  • Parkside navy blue v neck jumper, sweatshirt or cardigan with school logo on.  You may wish to have your child's initials embroidered underneath the school logo which Vortex Clothing school uniform suppliers do for a small charge  

  • Grey trousers/skirt/pinafore dress

  • White polo shirt - Foundation Stage - Year 5

  • White collared shirt - Year 6.  All Year 6 children will also receive a Parkside Tie which will be given to them by school at no charge 

  • Black school shoes (no boots/ankle boots/trainers /sandals)

  • Black indoor pumps

  • In summer, blue checked dresses can be worn 

  • Children also require a plain white t-shirt, navy blue shorts and trainers/pumps for PE lessons and a book bag.

  • Earrings should be small studs only.  If stud earrings are worn, children must be able to take them out themselves for PE.

  • Long hair should be tied back in a plain, elastic bobble - no large hair clips / bands are to be worn.  Also, please avoid inappropriate hairstyles e.g. shaved patterns, colours.


School uniform can be ordered via the school office from Vortex Clothing or directly from the Vortex website:


You are welcome to purchase school uniform from any high street supermarket and take jumpers/cardigans directly to Vortex so they can embroider the school logo on to them.  You may also wish to have your child's initials embroidered on to their school cardigan/jumper.
