Correct school uniform

19 October 2017

Dear Parent/Carer

As we near the end of the first half-term of the school year I am writing to ask for your support in ensuring that your child has the correct school uniform.

You will recall that in Miss Linsley’s end of year letter in July we reminded you that:

Trousers must be grey or charcoal grey, NOT black. Shoes must be ‘proper’ school shoes such as those sold at Clarkes. Soft soled Kickers/Vans/Converse and other similar styles are not appropriate.

As it stands your child has one or more items which do not meet our uniform expectations. Can I ask that over the half-term holiday you check your child’s uniform and purchase the correct items for them. For the purposes of clarity I am enclosing a list of approved school shoe styles.

If you are unable to purchase the correct school uniform items due to hardship then please e-mail and we will apply to our hardship fund on your behalf.

I am mindful of the fact that uniform can often be perceived as a difficult point of principle and sincerely hope you understand that these rules are in keeping with our firm commitment to preparing your son or daughter for the demands of life as an adult.  Further guidance on the Academy uniform can be found both on the website and in your child’s planner.

Please allow me to thank you for your anticipated and continued support on these and other matters as well as wishing you and your family a restful and pleasant half-term holiday.

Yours faithfully

Mr D Ajagbonna
Deputy Head
