Our Uniform Policy reinforces our academy culture of high expectations and academic achievement. We encourage age-appropriate dress and focus on teaching and modelling situational attire, making sure pupils know the difference between suitable attire for different settings: school; places of worship; work; holidays and weekends. The Uniform Policy is effective throughout the school year.

Uniform unites us as a community. We learn, practise, play and succeed together. All pupils make a commitment when they put on their Ark uniform that they will abide by the rules of the academy community.

Uniform reduces distractions. We are focused on our learning, the basics being reading, writing, mathematics and citizenship.

Uniform makes 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 are professional. Pupils look smart, neat and ready to learn.
