Academy Uniform

At Cliff Park Ormiston Academy has a highly aspirational ethos. As a result, we like our students to be smartly dressed at all times. It is the responsibility of all members of the academy community, staff, students and parents/carers to work together to ensure the policy is adhered to.

Uniform can be purchased via our Uniform provider:

Only discreet/natural make up and nail varnish is permitted. The academy reserves the right to ask students to remove any make up and nail polish at their discretion. For reasons of health and safety, false eyelashes are not permitted.

Nail Varnish & False Nails
Students can wear natural nail polish and nails. For health and safety reasons, nails must be short and suitable for PE and technical subjects.

Students may wear a wristwatch and one pair of stud earrings (one in each ear). No other jewellery is permitted, except a discreet religious symbol.
For reasons of health and safety, no other form of facial or body piercing is permitted and will be confiscated. Any inappropriate jewellery will be confiscated and placed in the school safe.

Lost Property
With a large number of students in the academy a vast amount of lost property is generated. All items should be clearly marked with a permanent marker or name label. Please do not bring in valuable items or large sums of money.

The academy cannot accept responsibility for the safe keeping of jewellery or any confiscated item which is not permitted as part of our policies. As a result, any items which are brought into the academy are at your own risk. This includes mobile phones and headphones etc.

Overall identity
The Academy uniform has been designed to reflect the high aspiration we have for our students. It is clearly identifiable within the local community and beyond; students should wear it in an exemplary manner at all times including whilst travelling to and from the Academy to represent us with pride.

Our uniform policy requires the support of parents. The ‘contract’ between the Academy and parents makes it clear that parents are obliged to provide the required uniform as set out above. Parents are also responsible for supporting the academy in enforcing the correct uniform and standards. All students are also required to wear specified Academy PE uniform for all PE and Sports.

IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ACADEMY’S ETHOS AND VALUES, ALL STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO WEAR CORRECT FULL ACADEMY UNIFORM AT ALL TIMES.
