At Cliff Park Ormiston Academy we would like our students to be smartly dressed at all times. It is the responsibility of all members of the academy community, staff, students & parents/carers to work together to help ensure the policy is adhered to.
- To encourage a sense of community and a business-like approach to daily tasks, both in and out of the academy.
- To ensure students are seen by themselves, staff, parents/carers, visitors, and the wider community as being smartly dressed, consequently enhancing the image of the academy for the benefit of all.
- To offer an affordable, practical and safe range of academy wear.
- To promote inclusion.
