Uniform

All pupils are expected to wear their uniform to a high standard. This reflects their pride in being part of our academy community, and is important preparation for secondary school, and beyond that, the workplace.

The table below illustrates our uniform requirements. We ask that parents support us by ensuring that their child arrives each day in full uniform, and that the smartness of their uniform is a source of pride.
