Wearing a school uniform fosters a sense of community and pride in a school, which is why we take uniform very seriously at Barclay Academy. Ultimately, dressing smartly prepares our students for their future careers, and sets them up as ambassadors for our school, giving them a share of the responsibility for its reputation.
Students must follow the uniform code at all times when on the Barclay Academy site. This applies throughout the Academy day as well as before and afterwards. Academy uniform must be purchased from the uniform website. Consideration will be given to students that cannot wear certain items for SEN or medical reasons, provided a professional medical letter is provided.
Students in years 7-11 are required to wear the full Academy uniform throughout the Academy day. Students arriving or on-site that are out of uniform will be issued with uniform they may borrow. They will also be required to attend a detention at the end of the day for 30 minutes. Repeated infringement of any rules will result in the items being confiscated as per our confiscation policy.
As well as wearing the correct uniform, students are expected to maintain a smart and well-presented appearance when on or around the Academy site. This includes discrete make-up, limited jewellery and natural, tidy hair. No other accessories are permitted, with the exception of items of clothing worn for religious reasons.
