Our Academy Uniform At Longspee Academy we consider uniform to be a very important aspect of school life and an indicator of a desire to set high standards.


It is expected that children will come to school appropriately dressed. School uniform is now compulsory and we are confident that parents/carers want their children to feel part of our community.   Wearing school specific clothing helps this process.

Our policy for dress is designed to be:

  • appropriate for school activities
  • supportable by all concerned – parents, carers, pupils, staff and governors
  • encouraging of community spirit and identity
  • easily obtainable, maintainable and inexpensive

Uniform List:

There is a common list for boys and girls, appropriate for both summer and winter wear.

  • White polo shirt or shirt
  • Dark grey trousers, skirt, tights
  • The school will provide sweatshirts in the school colours and with the school name and logo. These can be purchased from reception during the school day at a cost of £8.60 or £10.40 depending on the size
  • Black shoes or black trainers without any bright colours or logos
  • Trousers or skirts should not be excessively long and baggy; skin tight jeans, cords, tracksuit bottoms or cargo/combat trousers are not appropriate school wear. Skirts should not be too short ie. no shorter than approximately 8cms above the knee.
  • Hair – no extremes of hairstyle please. The school will respect genuine cultural and religious needs
  • For PE and Games your child will need a plain white T-shirt, black shorts and a pair of plimsolls or lightweight trainers.

We highly recommend that your child’s name is clearly marked on all his/her clothes as this helps considerably when articles of clothing are misplaced or left behind in school.
