Academy Uniform

Our Expectations

The Python Hill Academy believes that a uniform supports the development of a whole school ethos and is therefore supportive of good discipline and motivation. We want our pupils to be proud of their uniform and appearance and to recognise that by putting it on, they are part of a community that aspires to be outstanding in every way.

With this in mind we need to be very clear in our expectations of our uniform so that there is no ambiguity or misinterpretation of our expectations. Please find opposite, details of the standard of uniform that is expected and what is not acceptable. Below are further regulations to be respected.

  • A coat is needed in cold or wet weather.
  • Snacks for break time are to be healthy snacks only, no crisps, no chocolate covered bars etc.
  • Water bottles in the classroom should contain water or flavoured water. No squash or pop.
  • Due to security, all children and adults are to remain in the playground
  • At the start of the day KS2 children are to line up in the playground in register order and wait for the teacher
  • Any parents wishing to speak with a teacher, please make an appointment via the office

These are our expectations as a school. By sending your child to The Python Hill Academy, you are agreeing to this.
