Letter Home: Uniform Policy – September 2019

Dear Parents/Carer,

I am writing to confirm the Academy’s intention to amend the current uniform policy in readiness for September 2019 (New academic year). The amendment will be that all students are to be required to wear plain black trousers in a tailored style. This means the option of wearing a skirt will no longer be available to students.

Modern day learning in a secondary school in 2019 encompasses a multitude of activities for female students and young women both within and external to the school building.  Consultation and liaison with the Academy's student body via the School Council has demonstrated that the vast proportion of the female student body feel most appropriate when dressed in trousers.  In addition to this, a number of parents / carers have contacted the Academy outlining the difficulties encountered when attempting to source appropriately lengthed and affordable skirts that meet the specific requirements of our strict uniform policy.

The Academy is comfortable in the knowledge that this amendment meets the desired need of the student population.

All our uniform items are available from our uniform provider Pinder’s, near Rotherham Bus Station.

If you have any queries around uniform please do not hesitate to contact the Academy or alternatively check the Academy website for further information on our uniform policy.

Thank you for your continued support of the Academy.
Yours sincerely

Lee Hill
Assistant Headteacher
