All Ark Pioneer pupils wear full school uniform. Our uniform reflects our values and reinforces our academy’s culture of high expectations, pride in our appearance and academic achievement. It promotes a strong and cohesive academy identity, supports high standards in all areas of school life.

We have a compulsory academy uniform for several reasons:

  1. Uniforms unite the academy. Pupils make a commitment that when they put on their Ark Pioneer uniform they will actively support our ethos and abide by the rules of our community.
  2. Uniforms reduce distractions. We are focused on achieving success. When pupils are allowed to wear their own clothing, there is potential to talk about fashions and styles rather than learning.
  3. Uniforms help ensure equality in the academy. Whether families have high incomes or low incomes, the pupils come to the academy looking the same way. No one has to feel bad about the clothes they have or don’t have.
  4. Uniforms look professional, in that pupils look neat and ready to learn. Our suit-like uniform also helps prepare pupils for professional life and enhances their sense of formality.

Uniform details:

Our uniform blazer is plain navy with red lining. We have deliberately not included our school logo on the blazer, so that if a pupil needs a formal blazer to wear to a personal occasion, they can wear their uniform blazer and not have the extra cost.
Our white shirt can be long or shirt sleeved, whichever is more comfortable to the child, and purchased from any shop.

We will discuss the uniform in full with parents on their Home Visit.
