Home » Our Academy » Uniform


Students and parents are responsible for making sure that they know the required standards for uniform and that these standards are met not only in the Academy, but anytime it is worn, particularly to and from the Academy.

Items not permitted within the uniform will be temporarily confiscated; they will be returned once parental confirmation of ownership is obtained and at a time that remains at the discretion of the Academy.

The uniform is consistent with the ethos of the Academy and the Academy states clearly what it considers appropriate dress and presentation. If the Academy considers an aspect of a student’s dress or appearance to be inappropriate, it reserves the right to require correction of this by student and parent/carer. The decision of the Principal on any uniform matter is final.

Broadoak Academy Uniform

Students should take a pride in their standard of uniform and in their Academy. They represent the Academy through their appearance at all times both on the premises and on the journey between home and Academy.

The Academy is often complimented on the smart appearance of our students and we appreciate the support we receive from parents on this matter. If you require any kind of support regarding uniform please email us at [email protected]

Broadoak Academy is proud to champion The Halo Code and the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our black staff and students’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.

We welcome Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps (either in black or the Academy purple).

At this school, we recognise and celebrate our staff and students’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on anyone’s ability to succeed.

They will then be able to change out of a wet P.E. kit into a dry uniform for the rest of the day’s lessons. No jewellery.

If students are having piercings done during a holiday period, they should leave enough time to be able to remove them on their return to school – the same applies to any hairstyles that do not comply with the above code.
