The Pioneers Academy






    The school promotes excellence in everything its students undertake. The uniform and appearance of our students will support the ethos of our school; providing the students with pride to be part of the School and enabling them to act as ambassadors for the school.

    High standards of presentation are required at all times when wearing the school uniform.

    Whenever the school uniform is worn, it must be complete and not mixed with non-uniform clothing. This includes when travelling to and from school.



    To set out the school’s guidelines for uniform.

    Breaches of uniform code

    Uniforms will be checked on a regular basis to ensure they conform to our policy and that students look smart and well presented. If a student has the wrong uniform, the teacher or member of staff will challenge the pupil and instruct them to address the issue.

    For significant and repeated breaches of the uniform code, the matter will be referred, and the student may be sent home to address the concern before returning to school.

    If a prohibited or offensive item (such as an offensive image or slogan on stationery) is brought into school, the item will be confiscated.
