1high standards of appearance are expected at all times



Our uniform policy reflects our values and reinforces our academy’s culture of high expectations and academic achievement. We encourage age-appropriate dress and focus on making sure that pupils know the difference between suitable attire for different settings: school; home; work; holidays and weekends.

School uniform is one way in which we identify ourselves as an academy community and it promotes a strong and cohesive academy identity which supports high standards in all areas of academy life.

Finally, it promotes harmony between different groups represented in the academy, and enhances security.

We have a required academy uniform for several reasons:




  • Uniform unites us as a community. Pupils make a commitment that when they put on their Ark Dickens Primary Academy uniform they will abide by the rules of the academy community.

  • Uniforms reduce distractions. We are focused on learning and achieving success.

  • Uniforms make us all equal. The children come to school looking the same way. No one has to feel awkward about the clothes they have or don’t have.

  • Uniform gives us all an identity to be part and proud of.

  • Uniforms look professional; pupils look neat and ready to learn.


We ask parents and carers to support all decisions by academy staff regarding whether or not clothing is appropriate or inappropriate for school.

All pupils are expected to wear a uniform every school day, Monday to Friday. Once a pupil walks into the academy grounds, he/she should be wearing the appropriate uniform clothing and shoes. Shirts should be tucked in. When a pupil is in school, these expectations apply unless he/she has to change clothing for a specific activity e.g. PE and games. This change of clothing should also be appropriate attire. Upon return to normal classroom teaching, they must again wear full uniform.

Shoes must be worn at all times, except in specified classes. NO TRAINERS are allowed.



2Non-compliance with the Uniform Policy



Parents and carers will be contacted if their child is not wearing the correct uniform and footwear. They will be asked to bring in the appropriate uniform/footwear immediately.



If this is not possible then pupils will be provided with the uniform/footwear they are missing for the day from our spare stock.

Parents and carers of pupils who repeatedly violate the uniform policy will receive a letter indicating consistent disregard of uniform policy and will be asked to meet with the headteacher.

Parents will be encouraged to speak to the school if they are having specific problems adhering to the School Uniform Policy.

The academy will always be considerate and discrete in trying to establish why a pupil is not wearing the correct uniform. However parents must communicate with the school on any uniform issues.

There will be occasions when the academy decides that the academy uniform is not appropriate e.g. when taking part in a physical activity day, or wearing different clothes as a part of a fund raising event. Parents and carers will be notified in advance of what is the revised dress code on these days.



3Racial Equality and Equal Opportunities



All children have equal access to wearing the academy uniform regardless of their culture, race, religion, gender, disability or ability. We ensure that the set uniform respects other policies such as Equality, Race Relations, Sex Discrimination and allows for individual sets of circumstances of all groups and individuals. Ark Dickens Primary School is committed to creating a positive climate that will enable everyone to work free from racial intimidation and harassment and to achieve their full potential.

8Hats, Headscarves or Headwear



Pupils are not allowed to wear hats, headscarves, or any other head covering inside the academy building unless it is due to religious or cultural reasons. Any head covering for religious or cultural values or hair accessories that are worn such as slides, ribbons, bobbles etc. should be simple and in academy colours (blue and yellow).

9Hairstyles



Hair should be worn in an appropriate style with no extreme styling or designs of hair or eyebrows; e.g. lines/intricate patterns.


It is recommended that girls with long hair have their hair tied back whilst in school.

10Fingernail Polish or Make-Up



Pupils are not allowed to wear fingernail polish or false nails. Make-up is not allowed.

11Jewellery/Accessories



Pupils may not wear any jewellery except for one watch only (no sound effects or games). Pupils are allowed to wear one pair of stud earrings, and they must be worn in the lower ear lobe. All studs must be removed for PE or taped.



The academy will be unable to take any responsibility for any watches or jewellery that are lost.

12Naming Clothing and Property



VERY IMPORTANT – Please ensure all clothing and property is clearly marked so that lost articles may be easily traced and returned. The academy cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage of pupils’ property and valuables.



13Lost Property



All mislaid items are placed in the lost property box. Please ask at the Main Office if you wish to look through this box. We endeavour to return all named property. All unclaimed lost property is disposed of at the end of term and given to a local children’s charity.

14Second-hand Uniform



Any unwanted items of uniform may be given to the school Main Office. We will be developing a second hand uniform sale in the future.
