Academy Uniform

At Ark Castledown Primary Academy, we have a uniform policy, which reinforces our culture of high expectations and academic achievement. We encourage age-appropriate dress and we make sure pupils understand that there is suitable attire for different settings: school; places of worship; work; holidays and weekends. The uniform policy is effective throughout the school year.

  • All pupils must dress according to the Uniform Policy. This is a very important part of our ethos and culture.
  • Uniform unites us as a community. We learn, practise, play and succeed together. All pupils make a commitment when they put on their Ark Castledown 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.
