At St Dennis Primary Academy, we believe that school uniform gives a child pride in their personal appearance. It is important that our pupils feel a sense of belonging and community through a smart and practical uniform. We believe a uniform allows all pupils, regardless of background, to feel equal to their peers and confident. We also believe it is important for activities to be facilitated by specialised and appropriate clothing such as sports-specific attire.
Please ensure that all items of uniform are clearly named.
All logoed items can be purchased from:

School Book Bag
On entry to the Reception class, pupils will be issued with a school book bag to carry their books, planner and any equipment. Additional book bags can be purchased from the school office.
The school reserves the right to make a judgement on the suitability of pupils’ hair and appearance. Therefore, extreme hairstyles, such as mohawks and patterned or brightly coloured hair, are unacceptable.
Pupils with what could be deemed extreme hairstyles may be exempt from the rule above on racial or religious grounds, taking into consideration each individual pupil’s scenario.
Long hair must be tied up during practical lessons, e.g. during PE. Bandana style headbands and flowers/bows or excessive hair accessories are not to be worn; however, plain hair clips or bands are acceptable.
Hair extensions are not permitted.
Make-up, nail varnish, false nails and nail extensions are not permitted.
There may be exceptions to the above in extreme circumstances, at the headteacher’s discretion, e.g. a pupil may be permitted to cover heavy scarring/skin damage.
