Uniform

Introduction

  • The school’s uniform policy is designed to encourage a purposeful and effective climate for learning. 
  • It is expected that all 11-16 students wear full school uniform at all times, unless directed otherwise by staff.
  • All students and staff should be smart and take pride in their appearance, dressed appropriately within the ethos of a formal academic working environment. 
  • All students should be aware that they represent the school, its ethos and its image, when wearing the school uniform – both in and out of school.
  • Students should arrive and leave the school wearing the uniform within the expectations outlined below.

Rationale

The Governing Body support the Department for Education’s views on the importance of school uniform:

"A uniform can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion between different groups of pupils. Above all, many schools believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning and engenders a positive, calm and respectful teaching and learning environment. "

Academy Uniform Stockists

Dyson Perrins uniform items are supplied through our two official stockists- Kitz UK and Monkhouse.

Shirts and trousers can be purchased from any retailer. All other items are available from our stockists.

The academy also operates a uniform swap shop within the Pastoral Office. Parents are encouraged to contact the school if they require support with uniform.

Make-up should be minimal and subtle. Nail varnish and/or acrylic nails are not allowed.

No haircut may be shorter than a number 3. Hair should not have any shaved working or patterns on the scalp or back of head.

Uniform Swap Shop - Free Preloved Items

Uniform can be expensive and family circumstances can change. Sometimes keeping our children in full school uniform can be difficult, especially during these challenging times with the cost of living soaring.

Please help us to help as many families in our school community to provide their children with the uniform necessary to keep them warm, safe and ready to learn.
