Pupil Uniform Guidelines - Reception to Year 6

In order for our children to identify as members of the academy community, we have a uniform which we ask the children to wear every academy day. The uniform consists of a grey trousers or shorts or grey/navy blue skirt, together with a white polo shirt or blouse and a navy jumper/sweatshirt with plain black shoes.

We encourage all children to wear academy sweatshirts and polo shirts that are embroidered with an academy badge. These are available from:

Pupils from year 3 onwards also need football boots, or footwear that is suitable for playing on the field, socks, and football shirt. Tracksuits may be worn for outdoor activities. For reasons of hygiene and safety, children are expected to change for P.E. All clothing for P.E. should be brought in a suitable bag. As space is limited, we recommend that a simple drawstring bag be used.

All clothing should be marked with the owner’s name. The wearing of jewellery is discouraged. Children who do have pierced ears will be expected to remove earrings on the days they have P.E. or swimming to avoid accidents. To ease this situation, we ask that on P.E. and swimming days no items of jewellery are worn.

We do reserve the right to forbid items of clothing, accessories and footwear which are unacceptably dangerous in the academy or are against the interests of the children at large. Similarly, extremes of new styles are not acceptable.
