School Uniform and Dress Code
Children are expected to be suitably dressed for the variety of indoor and outdoor activities which they will be pursuing during the school day.
The Governing Body recommends the following dress code:
- Black sweatshirt/cardigan
- White polo shirt
- Grey or black trousers or skirts
- Sensible Black shoes (no trainers please)
- Grey or black shorts (Summer)
- Blue gingham dress (Summer)
- Plain black or grey tights / Black, grey or white socks
- Only small stud earrings are allowed to be worn in school.
The children will require alternative clothing for Games and PE. They will need:-
- Dark shorts
- A T-shirt or sports shirt preferably in your child’s house team colour:
- Venus – Green
- Mercury – Yellow
- Neptune – Blue
- Mars – Red
- Trainers or plimsolls
We encourage all of our students to take pride in their uniform and to have a high standard of personal appearance. We also encourage them to take responsibility for their own appearance, all hair that is below shoulder length or that covers the eyes should be tied back during the school day. They should always help to create a positive first impression of the Academy both within and outside the school. We believe that our uniform is smart and practical to wear and we will always endeavour to provide the best value for money.
Your support as parents /carers is critical in enabling us to uphold the policy consistently and effectively to ensure the highest standards.
Lost property can be a real problem in school. Please ensure that your child’s clothes are fully labelled. That way we can return them easily if mislaid.
