The staff and governors of Christ Church Academy have high expectations of uniform and appearance. The wearing of sensible and appropriate school uniform enables pupils to participate fully in all areas of school life, as well as imbuing them with a sense of pride in their appearance which will be of great importance later on in life.
We expect all pupils to be smartly dressed in uniform that is consistent with the school’s uniform policy. I would like to invite you to check your child’s uniform and replace any unsuitable items. To assist parents and carers with this, clear guidelines have been given by the school. On the reverse of this letter is a full copy of the school uniform guidance, which can also be found in your child’s daybook and in the school prospectus.
In particular, I would like to remind parents and carers of the following:
Pupils are expected to wear all black shoes (including soles), which are fully enclosed and can be polished. Shoes must not show any colour/logo or insignia.
Canvas or suede trainers or high boots, and high heels are also unacceptable.
Boys’ and girls’ school trousers should be of a tailored appearance and should not be tight fitting. Leggings, jeans or any kind of ‘skinny-fit’ trousers are not allowed.
Pupils are permitted to wear a wrist watch and a single ear stud in each earlobe. Large earrings, multiple earrings, spreader or stretcher earrings are not allowed.
Pupils hair should be kept natural in colour and have no extreme style. This includes no tram lines, patterns or grade 1 haircuts.
Make-up (including mascara) MUST NOT be worn. Nail Varnish or false nails are also not allowed.
Please be aware that some high street shops and online retailers are selling items described as ‘school uniform' that do not comply with our uniform standards. Therefore, if you have any queries regarding the school’s uniform guidelines, please do not hesitate to contact me.
If pupils come into school wearing uniform that does not meet our uniform guidelines this may result in them being kept out of circulation at break and lunchtimes. If pupils have been spoken to about their uniform and continue to come to school wearing inappropriate clothing then parents and carers will be contacted and pupils sent home.
I wish to thank you for your support in ensuring that your child is appropriately dressed for school.
