Lowther Endowed School expects all pupils to wear the school uniform at all times during the school year. The aim of our policy is to ensure pupils are smart, feel a sense of belonging and ready to learn. Uniform helps us set high standards as soon as we walk into school.
The uniform has been kept simple, so that it is easy to find and purchase and to keep the cost to a minimum! Parents/carers are expected to send their children in to school correctly dressed and we ask that you inform us by telephone/email if, for any reason, the appropriate school uniform cannot be worn. Whilst uniform with the school logo is available to purchase from Sam Scotts Penrith (Sam Scotts - Schoolwear, Workwear, Embroidery & Printing), plain uniform is equally acceptable for all, readily available from supermarkets. We regularly keep second hand uniform to pass on to families too - please do return any good quality uniform to us for this purpose.
Children are currently wearing their school PE Kit to school for PE days. This was introduced after the pandemic and has made a huge difference to the amount of PE time as well as lessened lost property. These days are subject to change and parents will be informed of any half termly (or weekly changes). PE Kit needs also to be uniform compliant with no branded/fashion sports clothing to be worn.
Jewellery, other than standard watches, should not be worn. Children with pierced ears should only wear studs to school for safety, and these must be removed by the child for PE and swimming lessons. Long hair needs to be tied back securely for these activities. Thank you.

Pupils may wear watches, but this must also be removed for PE and games lessons.
