We want all our pupils to look smart when at school and feel proud to wear their uniform. We believe that wearing a school uniform enhances a feeling of belonging.
We also believe that wearing school uniform prevents the inevitable loss of self- esteem caused to individual pupils if they are unable to keep up with the latest fashion.
At Dove House Academy, we:
- avoid listing uniform items based on sex, to give students the opportunity to wear the uniform they feel most comfortable in or that most reflects their self-identified gender
- allow students to wear religious or cultural symbols
- ensure uniform is affordable, in line with statutory guidance from the Department for Education
From time to time, some issues of safety and comfort for individual students, which may necessitate some changes to the normal uniform, can be taken into consideration.
If you feel your child may need an alternative due to their SEN or sensory requirements, please contact their tutor who will be happy to support you in finding a suitable alternative.
