School Uniform Expectations

  • All children to wear black shoes.
  • In winter, children to wear a royal blue jumper or cardigan, grey skirt, grey pinafore or grey school trousers, with a white/pale blue polo shirt or shirt.
  • In summer, children can choose to wear a blue summer gingham dress or grey shorts.
  • All children receive a free school book bag upon joining Hemlington Hall Academy.
  • It is really important to dress for the weather as the children will be outdoors in many different weather conditions.

Uniform items with an embroidered logo can be ordered and purchased through school, however non-branded items of clothing are equally fine – no branded items are compulsory in our school.

We also have a uniform exchange in school, where families can swap pre-loved uniforms items.

Our P.E. Kit is supplied by school for all children. This remains in school at all times and is laundered by school. 

Please see below for The Academy’s dos and don’ts.

For KS2 swimming, a one-piece bathing suit or swimming trunks is needed. A comb and a towel should be provided from home. Should you wish for your child to wear goggles, the pool ask that you complete a separate consent form, as they prefer children not to wear goggles (link below).

Goggles Consent Form

Please put your child’s name in every item of clothing including coats and shoes, so that items are not misplaced and can be easily found if they are.

Children are not allowed jewellery other than a watch and a single stud in each ear, which must be removed or covered for PE.   Staff are not insured to remove children’s earrings.

It is important to remember that children come to school to learn, and that ‘party’ clothes and ‘statement hairstyles’ are not appropriate during a school day. Striking hairstyles, which includes shaved patterns, mohicans, ‘tails’ and dyes/bleach, are not allowed.

Long hair needs to be fully tied up.

Nail varnish should not be worn for school.

You can order sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts and fleeces from the school with the school badge / logo. Sew-on logos are also available to buy, to add to plain royal blue sweatshirts / polo shirts available from other stores. Please download the uniform order form from the ‘Downloadable Forms’ tab.
