It is recommended that Academy trousers/shorts/skirts should also be purchased directly from Samuel Daw & Co. However, should parents/carers wish to purchase these uniform items from an alternative source they must be sure the trousers/shorts/skirts replicate exactly the Daw's recommended trousers/shorts/skirts and meet our Academy Uniform Code. Please note: students wearing uniform not meeting this description will be asked to change.


As is our usual policy with school uniform, parents are asked to ensure that names are clearly marked on all items of clothing, including shoes and PE. uniform. 


In making a decision about what constitutes acceptable uniform and appearance, the decision of the Principal/Leadership Team and Governors is final.  If a student comes to the academy in non-uniform, he/she must anticipate being asked to wear appropriate academy uniform from academy stock or your student will be placed in isolation.

If there is any doubt about whether a particular item is acceptable, please check with the Academy before purchasing.

For parents/carers in receipt of benefits, a concession on a uniform purchased from Daw's is available.  Please contact the academy to find out how to access this concession, or follow the link to find out if this applies to you - Application for Uniform Concession (you must provide documentary evidence).
