Second Hand Uniform
We are now operating a second-hand uniform shop from Main Reception. This is to sell uniform that has been kindly donated from other Braunton Academy families.
Please see the link below for a full list of items we currently have available - please contact Reception on 01271 812221 if you are interested in purchasing any uniform.
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 stock or the student will be placed in the Reflection Room.
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 Clothing Company 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).
