Danesholme Junior Academy

Uniform

THE ACADEMY UNIFORM

At the Danesholme Junior Academy we place an emphasis on pride in our community. A visible indication of this is in the standard of our pupils’ uniform.  

Having a school uniform is important because it:

  • Builds a sense of identity and belonging
  • Instills a sense of pride in the Academy
  • Protects children from social pressures
  • Encourages positive behaviour
  • Is practical and smart and prepares children for the future world of work.

We do expect all our pupils to wear the full Academy uniform.

The Academy now has a new uniform supplier, Price and Buckland. Please click on the link below to go to their website and set up an account for any items you wish to order - read details on how to order on this information sheet.  You can also speak to our office staff regarding any uniform queries. http://www.pbparentsonline.co.uk/danesholmejunior

Due to the changeover in suppliers, there may be a short delay in ordering uniform stock.  Please be assured that, once stock levels have been replenished, delivery will be very quick, either to your home address or to the Academy

For safety reasons, only stud earrings are allowed and then only one earring in each ear lobe.  Any child who elects to have their nose pierced or additional ear piercings will have to remove these during school times for health and safety reasons. Inexpensive watches may be worn, but these should not include alarms or games. It will be the children’s responsibility to look after these articles. NO JEWELLERY may be worn during PE lessons or sporting activities.

Hairstyles

Excessive hairstyles are strongly discouraged; it is expected that children will come to school with a practical and manageable hairstyle. Any pupil with long hair must have it tied back at all times whilsts at the Academy. ‘Cuts’ of any shape or design, including 'Mohican' styles, are not allowed, nor are multiple hair colours. Any pupil with long hair must have it tied back at all times whilst at the Academy. All hair accessories should be modest and in the Academy colours.

Make up and Cosmetics

Make up, cosmetics, nail varnish and false nails are not considered appropriate or consistent with our Academy uniform and pupils will be asked to remove it. The Academy does not permit such products to be worn by any children unless there is a specific event for which the Principal has given permission.
