Uniform Standards

We expect a very high standard of appearance and rely upon the support of parents in this matter. If a student is wearing incorrect uniform they will be subject to isolation until the correct item is brought into school.

No jewellery other than a watch and one pair of discreet stud earrings worn in the lobe of the ear only. No other body piercings are allowed.

In aiming to create a smart appearance, we expect hairstyles for boys and girls to be conventional and acceptable to the school. As a guideline, there should be no extremes of unnatural colour or two-tone colours (dip-dye). Hair should be tidy and tied back where appropriate on health and safety grounds.

Shaven heads are not acceptable unless there are religious grounds in which case, a signed letter from the appropriate religious organisation is required.

Make-up including nail varnish, fake tan, false nails and false eyelashes are not permitted below the Sixth Form.

 

Outdoor Clothing

  • Boys and girls may wear a smart coloured coat or anorak to and from school
  • The fabric must not be leather, PVC or denim
  • Students are not permitted to wear sweatshirts, hooded tops or baseball caps in and around school
  • A scarf and gloves may be worn in winter. Hats may be worn to and from school in winter but not during the school day

We know that many parents prefer to order online – this service is available from Trutex Direct.  Log onto www.trutexdirect.com  and register using our school’s LEA code: LEA00954SC. This will take you to the Goffs Academy uniform page, where you can see all items of our school uniform.  The site is secure and orders can be placed quickly and safely, direct with Trutex. 

School uniform is available from Trutex all year round. Postage and packaging is free on orders over £50, or just £3.50 for orders under that amount.

Trutex will normally deliver within 7 working days. However, during the busiest time towards the start of back to school, this can take longer.  We do therefore seriously recommend that you place your order for the new school year before 3rd August 2018, in order to ensure delivery in time for the start of term on 31st August 2018.  Whilst every effort will be made to satisfy all orders, Trutex cannot guarantee delivery in time for the new academic year after this date.

 

House ties can also be purchased from us; please send your child in with the correct money (currently £8.50) to Student Support Reception.

If parents are uncertain about any aspect of the uniform requirements, please contact the school for clarification.

We appreciate your support in maintaining our very high standards of uniform at Goffs Academy.
