Uniform and Equipment Code

Maintaining high standards of uniform is an important part of the overall aspirations of The Victory Academy. Instilling high standards teaches students to comply with a dress code, which will be an important workplace skill for them in later life. Perhaps most importantly, our uniform reflects our corporate identity as a community and encourages students to take pride in themselves and their school.

The Academy seeks to work with parents/carers to resolve any issues relating to uniform. Should there be an issue with your child meeting the above expectations we would ask that you contact the Academy in advance so that we can work together to resolve the issue. Should your child arrive to school with incorrect uniform, you will be contacted by telephone and they will be sent home. Your child’s attendance will be recorded as unauthorised. We appreciate your support in working with us to ensure that students come to school well-presented and in correct uniform.
