School Uniform

We believe that uniform plays an important role in the Academy ethos. Children need to be suitably dressed for the working day. A smart appearance helps to maintain high esteem and a sense of pride in the school community and we expect all children to look their best.

Our Academy uniform is blue and grey and is strongly recommended.

We recognise that children need comfortable hard-wearing clothes for school, which are easy to wash. Our parents have opted for the following as being practical:

  • Dark grey skirt/tunic (no more than 5cm above or below the knee), with dark grey tights or three quarter socks (grey or white)
  • Dark grey or black tailored trousers (not fashion trousers)
  • Academy sweatshirt or sweat cardigan (with embroidered school badge)
  • White school polo shirt (with embroidered school badge)

In summer, a blue gingham dress may be worn with white socks

School fleeces and warm coats with reflector strips are available

High quality school sweatshirts, cardigans, cotton polo shirts, fleeces and coats with the school badge are available for you to order direct through Emblematic. Please click here to order uniform.

For health and safety reasons, we ask that children wear plain, dark, (preferably black) sensible, flat heeled shoes for school – sandals, trainers and boots are not suitable for wearing throughout the school day. In wet weather, children need indoor gymshoes and outdoor shoes.

The headteacher has the right to prohibit the wearing of certain types of clothing or particular items which are deemed, on safety or other grounds, to be unsuitable for wear in school. Denim jeans or chino trousers are not suitable clothing and should not be worn.

The Governors have decided that the adopting of fashionable hair colour and styles is forbidden. This has the potential to place a child at increased risk of bullying and harassment. Shaved hair including patterns and extreme styles are not acceptable in school. Natural hair colour only is acceptable. Hair should normally be tied back. In certain lessons (i.e. P.E., cookery, art etc.) all children with shoulder length hair must tie it back for health and safety reasons.

The Academy considers it is reasonable to ban children from wearing jewellery as it considers that this poses a risk of injury, or has the potential to place a pupil at increased risk of bullying and harassment. Children are allowed to wear a sensible watch which encourages them to learn to read the time. The wearing of any other jewellery is forbidden.

The wearing of make-up, including nail varnish is forbidden.

Academy P.E. Uniform

Indoor- blue shorts and blue school (with badge) T-shirt, gym shoes must be worn for indoor PE.

Outdoor-tracksuit, football kit, suitable footwear, i.e. trainers or football boots.

It is essential that all children bring their P.E. clothes on a Monday in a drawstring bag, which can fit on a peg in the cloakroom. Your child is expected to bring this home every Friday. All children are expected to join in the P.E. lesson. Exceptions are only made when a medical certificate or note is provided.
