School Uniform Policy

Cockaigne Academy has clear and strict guidelines on dress code, we pride ourselves on high standards and all students are expected to wear the school uniform detailed below. 

In order to ensure consistency of uniform across the school, we would be grateful for your support in purchasing uniform items directly from CS Outfitters.

All items of clothing, including PE kit, should be clearly marked with the students’ full names, preferably by nametape. In the event of a student losing an item, if this is named, we can easily return the item to them. Any unnamed lost property is retained at Student Services until the end of the half-term before being donated to charity. Students should check regularly with Student Services if they have lost an item.

Please ensure your son/daughter has the correct uniform every day. Students’ uniform is checked daily by their Tutors and Year Leaders and sanctions will be implemented for students who persistently wear the incorrect uniform.

Items that are not permitted: Any items that are not permitted will be confiscated and held at Main Reception until a parent/carer can collect the item or returned to the student at the end of the half term. Please contact Main Reception to arrange a convenient time to collect any confiscated items.
