Footwear is a key part of the uniform. Footwear must be completely black. Whilst we allow children to wear trainers, they must not have any other colourings including white soles. Footwear with any other colourings will be expected to be replaced with the appropriate style immediately. Therefore, to avoid this happening, please have a look below at the examples of what is and is not permitted or speak with a member of the school before purchasing the footwear.

For girls, it is important that the footwear has a flat sole and does not have a heel as this could cause injury to the child when walking/running.

The reasons that all pupils are asked to wear school uniform is as follows:
  • Uniform creates a special identity and belonging to the Academy.
  • Uniform is cost effective for parents and carers especially as the children get older and become more fashion conscious.
  • Younger children may find it easier to dress in uniform as they get regular practice putting on and taking off the same clothes.
  • Uniform helps to combat arguments in the morning about what to wear.
  • Uniform stops children from feeling different. 
  • Uniform helps to maintain behaviour and discipline

Jewellery is often expensive and any loss or damage can cause unnecessary disappointment. For this reason, most jewellery is not allowed at Applegarth as is not in line with our uniform policy. The only form of jewellery that is allowed at Applegarth is stud earrings. Hoop or dangling earrings are not allowed as they may cause injury to your child’s ears. Unfortunately, if your child is wearing hoop or  dangling earrings, they will have to stay with their class teacher during break and lunch play for safety reasons.
