It will encourage identity with, and support for, the Academy ethos and ensure students from all backgrounds feel welcome. The uniform will protect students from social pressures to dress in a particular way and nurture cohesion to promote good relationships between different groups of students. It combines smartness with functionality and durability. Parents/carers are strongly advised to pay particular attention to the uniform details attached, and to take expert advice from staff at the school.
Students are expected to wear their full uniform with pride. This includes on their way to School and home. Those wearing incomplete uniform or non-approved items risk being referred to the Lighthouse or being sent home until the matter is resolved.
