Coronavirus Update / FSM Update

Further information about how our Trust and schools are taking necessary precautions since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, can be found in our Trust’s ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) website section’.

If any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility and is unable to provide childcare at home, you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing or calling 01304 403 103 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday. Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing.

School Uniform

There are many good reasons for wearing a uniform; it creates an identity for students, it encourages a feeling of belonging and of having pride in the Academy and in appearance, it is also by far the most sensible and smartest way to dress during school time. Therefore, I have no doubt that the very high standards that we expect from students will be supported by this new uniform.

Any departure from the Academy’s uniform code will be challenged and may result in the student being isolated within the Academy or sent home to change (with the parents/carers permission). Repeat/persistent breaches will be viewed as defiance and dealt with at the discretion of the Senior Leadership Team.

The Academy uniform can be purchased from Fosters school wear website. There are six compulsory items (listed below) that must be purchased for all students in Years 7-10. For Year 11, the new PE uniform is optional, so the main uniform items will only need to be purchased (blazer, tie and trouser/skirt).

Academy Main Uniform (Years 7-11)

  • Academy Blazer
  • Trouser/Skirt
  • Tie

Academy PE Uniform (Years 7-11)

  • Polo Shirt
  • Tracksuit Bottoms/Leggings
  • Shorts/Skirt

Please view the following document to find out how our uniform should look.
