Does Parkhead Primary School Have A School Uniform?

Yes we do. Our uniform at Parkhead Primary School is an important part of creating a sense of belonging as well as being practical and comfortable

Each school in West Lothian has its own dress code, for the whole school, based on the Council's policy which all pupils will be expected to keep to.

At Parkhead Primary School we have a school uniform which we encourage children to wear.  A variety of school uniform can be ordered and purchased at any time during the year through our online supplier.  The school also stocks a small supply of second hand clothing which can be made available upon request.

Our Uniform

  • Black or Grey Trousers/Shorts or Black or Grey Skirt/Pinafore
  • Black or Red Sweatshirt/Jumper or Cardigan
  • Black, Red or White Polo Shirt, Blouse or Shirt

Children are also required to have an indoor gym kit of T-shirt, shorts and gym shoes, as well as an outdoor gym kit with a tracksuit, T-shirt, trainers and a waterproof jacket.  We can also provide wet weather jackets and trousers for use in emergencies.  Children should not wear jewellery to school in case they have an accident or in case the jewellery gets lost.  Jewellery including earrings must not be worn during PE classes. Please note that no football colours or logos are allowed in the school.

The school will not be held responsible for loss of or damage to pupils' clothing and personal belongings including mobile phones. Valuable items, including jewellery and unnecessarily expensive articles of clothing, should not be brought to school.

Labelling Your School Uniform

School uniform all looks the same unless you put your child's name on the inside.  It is really important that you label your child's clothing, our Lost Property Box is testament to that fact! Laundry pens, or permanent markers are great for quickly putting your child's name on the laundry tag on the inside of their clothes. You can also purchase name tags from BE Schoolwear (opens new window), which come with your child's name printed on them. This may seem fiddly, but trust us, you will thank us in the long run!
