COST OF UNIFORM
We want to ensure that the cost of uniform does not deter any student from applying to the school, nor leads to them feeling socially excluded or unable to afford other necessities. Parents who are unable to provide their child with the required items of Academy uniform should contact the Phase SaFE Worker. Such approaches will be handled with discretion and sensitivity. The uniform suppliers, costs and quality of the uniform are reviewed annually to ensure that they provide good quality clothing at an affordable price.

ENFORCEMENT OF THE UNIFORM POLICY
It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their child comes to the Academy in the correct uniform (see the Home School Agreement). Year teams, form tutors and class teachers are responsible for monitoring uniform; all staff have a responsibility for ensuring that students are correctly dressed in class and elsewhere on the Academy site.
A student wearing non-uniform clothing will have parents contacted and if necessary the student will be sent home to correct their uniform. In the case of jewellery and other accessories, the student will be asked to remove the item, which will be confiscated and locked in the Year Base or Primary Phase safe.
