Uniform

Uniform at Kentmere Academy plays an important role in our community identity. We encourage our pupils to be proud of their school’s accomplishments and take pride in their appearance as they represent Kentmere within the local area and beyond. All clothing and equipment must be clearly labelled with your child’s name, coats should have a strong loop for hanging. P.E. attire must be brought in a cloth bag with a loop to hang on a peg. Swimming kit is needed in a separate bag.

Long hair should be tied up with black, grey or maroon plain hair bobbles or hair band for girls. We do not allow make-up which includes nail varnish. Children are expected to wear black school shoes and not boots or trainers. Please ensure that all items are clearly marked with your child’s name. No jewellery must be worn in school (this includes earrings), except for wristwatches.

The Academy will consider requested exceptions from the Uniform Policy in relation to religious articles on a case by case basis.

Please could we remind you that all children must wear school uniform in school. School uniform may be purchased from the Top form, Moses shops on Drake Street, in Rochdale, Ziggies on York Street Rochdale, Andizyns at 147 Wardle Road or from the school office (some items only).

No jewellery must be worn in school. This includes earrings. The only exception is wristwatches. If children are getting their ears pierced, please do this in the 6 weeks holidays.

A sensible hair style is necessary e.g. no colours, no shaved lines, patterns, extreme hair styles - which includes hairstyles where the sides are much shorter than the top.

Please can you also ensure that all items are clearly marked with your child’s name. If the uniform policy is not followed, your child is at risk of exclusion.
