A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students. Families are asked for their support in ensuring our high standards are met.

If there are any queries about what may be accepted please contact your child's House Achievement Leader before making any purchases that may not meet our requirements and cause unnecessary expense.

Uniform

All uniform and personal possessions should be clearly name-labelled.  Parklands respects all religions and cultures and, therefore, permits the wearing of headscarves for religious reasons. We regret that we are unable to allow face coverings.

Equipment

Ensure that your child takes responsibility for coming to school fully equipped with: black, blue and red pens; ruler; pencil; eraser; school books and appropriate kit. 

We recommend that your child rents a locker, as it provides storage for valuable items and avoids having to carry heavy or bulky items around school every day.

Standards

Watches are the only permitted jewellery item. All other jewellery including earrings, studs, stretchers and dermal piercings are not permitted and we insist on their removal if worn in school, regardless of whether this may cause a piercing to heal. Therefore, if your child has a new piercing it should be done at the start of the school summer holidays, to allow for the recommended healing period.

Extreme hairstyles and colours are not permitted. Should you allow your child to have such styles or colours we request they are done at the start of the summer break, in order to meet our standards at the start of the new academic year.

Make-up is not allowed apart from year 11 where discrete make-up is permitted (school will be the final arbiter regarding this where there is disagreement). Nail varnish and any form of false nails are not permitted 

School will be the final arbiter of what is acceptable with regards to uniform, standards and equipment.

*In order to maintain high standards we have a ‘5 strikes rule’ in relation to skirt length. Students who need to be reminded on 5 separate occasions will have the option to wear a skirt removed and will be expected to wear school trousers.
