The Importance of Uniform
Parents tell us they welcome having clear knowledge of what their children are expected to wear for school. In light of this we have produced clear guidelines for you. The uniform ensures that students look professional and that they are ready to learn. We hope you agree it looks very smart. We thank you for your continued support in enabling us to maintain the high standards expected from Goole Academy students.
Please see below for Uniform Guidance and Uniform Price List.
Facial piercings, including tongue bars, are not permitted on the grounds of health and safety and students should remove them immediately before entering the Academy's site. Students are not allowed rings, bracelets (except SOS medical awareness tags) and necklaces. Earrings are permitted as long as they are of a sensible size and are a stud design, but are to be removed for PE for health and safety reasons.
Coloured ear spacers or stretchers are not allowed. Long, conical ear pieces are not allowed.
Hair sculpting and shaved patterns are not permitted, whether done in holidays or as a trend. Students with such overt patterns will be isolated until such time as an agreement or compromise with parents can be made.
Colourings or highlights that are subtle and do not seek to push the boundaries of the Academy’s policy and are in keeping with a smart and presentable appearance are permitted. ‘Dip dyeing’ or outrageous and obviously unnatural colourings that deliberately seek to draw attention and become a distraction are not permitted and the student will be isolated until such time as an agreement or compromise with parents has been made.
Travelling to and from Goole Academy
Students will wear their full Academy uniform on their morning and afternoon journeys between home and the Academy. The Academy has a duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to take action to address behaviour even when students are not under the legal control of the Academy; the wearing of uniform to and from the Academy supports this Act of Parliament.
All students must have:
A bag large enough to carry an A4 folder
Exercise books required for the day
Pencil case containing: 2 pens, 2 pencils, calculator, pencil sharpener, rubber and ruler
Mobile phones, iPods, MP3 players etc will be confiscated if seen or heard by a member of staff during lessons and will be placed by the staff in the Academy's safe. Parents/carers will have to collect the item from the Academy at their convenience.
Do you have uniforms that your children no longer need? Would you be willing to donate them to help support local families experiencing financial difficulties and help raise funds for the school?
If the answer to these questions are 'yes', then please bring any items to reception any time between 8.15am and 3.30pm.
Any and all monies made will be fed into the rewards system as requested by parents and the student council.
