The academy will not bypass our uniform expectations as a result of receiving notes from parents/carers explaining uniform discrepancies. 

We are very proud of our uniform and believe the uniform should be worn with pride. Pupils are asked to follow the uniform rules closely and present themselves as they would do in the world of work. Academy uniform develops a sense of loyalty to the community which students are members, and we always encourage them to take a pride in their appearance.  Students are expected to wear full academy uniform on the way to and from the academy, and to understand that they represent the academy whilst in uniform.
