Please note: black/brown low-heeled boots may be worn by girls in the winter (not in summer terms) but these should be as plain as possible and trousers must not be tucked in them. Please may we also ask that tights are worn with skirts and boots.   

Summer dresses (red gingham) may be worn by girls across the academy but must not be worn with tights or boots.

Trainers, leggings or jeans are not part of our uniform code and must not be worn at any time.

If there is a compelling reason as to why your child cannot be in correct school uniform for that day you will need to inform us by letter. We only expect this to be short term and normal school uniform should be worn after this time.

Any child that is not wearing correct school uniform will be spoken to and as staff we are all taking responsibility for maintaining standards so your child may be spoken to more than once.

Please may I also remind you that NO jewellery may be worn to school except for stud earrings or for religious/compelling reasons. Leather bracelets/friendship bands cannot be worn.

Our school’s fleece is designed for outdoor wear only, so we will be asking children to remove their fleeces whilst in lessons.

Pupils will also need a full PE kit in school daily. This must include: black shorts, plain white or school logo t-shirt, black plimsolls, plain black jogging bottoms and trainers for outdoor sessions. If your child does not have kit in school you will receive an email to notify you of this. Participation in PE lessons is statutory and it is important that pupils have the correct uniform to enable them to engage fully.

As a school, we look forward to continuing to wear our uniform with pride.
