Our policy

We are part of the Frays Academy Trust.  This document is part of our Uniform Policy which sets out our approach to requiring a uniform for our schools that is of reasonable cost and offers the best value for money for parents and carers.  It explains how we will avoid discrimination in line with our legal duties under the Equality Act 2010 and clarifies our expectations for school uniform.   If you have any queries or wish to request adjustments to our policy on the grounds of equality, please contact the Headteacher, who will be happy to discuss this with you.  Please also contact the Headteacher if financial hardship is preventing your family from complying with our policy, as we will take a mindful and considerate approach to resolving the situation with you.  The policy is available on our website or from the school office on request.
