Uniform Standards

All students are expected to take pride in their appearance and to understand the importance of looking smart and professional whilst in school and out in the local community. Students are required to adhere to the uniform standards, to ensure that they look their best and show their pride in representing Manor Croft Academy.

Wearing smart uniform, including P.E. kits, is an important factor in encouraging a disciplined, positive ethos at Manor Croft Academy. It is the policy of the school, therefore, that students should wear school uniform as outlined below; please note that fashion items are not permitted. Students are expected to be dressed correctly on their journey to and from school, as well as in school. Parents’/Carers’ support in this matter is expected and appreciated.

Girls

  • Delta Logo blazer
  • Delta tie (available from school supplier or school reception)
  • Plain white shirt/blouse with collar (no polo shirts, top button must be fastened and tucked in, long or short sleeved)
  • Black Delta trousers or Delta skirt (worn with tights)
  • Flat, plain black shoes (no logos, no heels, no pumps/trainers/boots and no embellishments e.g. Bows)

Outdoor Coat

These should be of subdued colour and plain material. Given that students walk to and from school in all weathers a coat that is both warm and shower proof is a good idea. Sweatshirts, hooded tops, sportswear, cardigans or jumpers are not allowed and will be confiscated and put in a secure place.

If a student infringes the uniform policy and a personal item is confiscated the school cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to any item.

All parents/carers are encouraged to provide their children with shin guards and gum shields to prevent injuries in rugby, football and hockey.

Make Up

Make up, including nail varnish and false nails are not permitted. Fake tan is also not allowed.

Haircuts and Styles

Extreme haircuts (including patterns and tramlines shaved into the scalp) and non-natural hair colours (e.g. blue, purple or pink) are not permitted in school. If your child’s hair style is considered inappropriate you will be asked to have it modified. If it is not possible to have it modified your child may be taught in isolation until it grows out. 

Transition Uniform Update

To ensure that we are following the current government guidance re social distancing, all yr6 uniform packs will be posted direct to the parents by week commencing 3rd August 2020.  Parents will then have the opportunity to return any item that they feel they will need to swap by 14th August 2020.  The new items will be delivered to the academy for w/c 24th August 2020 for the academy to then arrange for the parent to collect at an allocated time to ensure that we do not have too many parents on site at once.  Obviously, if there are no swaps needed, then this arrangement will not be needed. This final arrangement may need to change if current government guidance is either extended or changed.

We will be postponing, under the current government guidance, the Pop Up shops planned for over the summer holidays.  If they require extra uniform you will need to visit the SPT Uniforms internet ordering service. There is a link to SPT Uniforms on our website uniform page.  Any orders below £25.99 will attract a postage charge of £1.99 and orders over £26 will be free delivery.
