Our Paxton uniform is an important part of school life which helps children to settle into school and feel a sense of belonging. We expect parents to ensure that children are dressed correctly for school every day. 

All items of uniform must be labelled with full names so that children can easily recognise which items are theirs. 

Hairstyles and accessories

All boys are expected to have neat and tidy hairstyles.

All girls' hair accessories should be navy blue, black or red. Long hair must be tied back and be neat and tidy. If beads are worn, these must be tied back with no beads dangling on the child’s face in order to prevent injury. Beads should be in the Academy colours.
