Our governors, staff, pupils and parents recognise the important contribution school uniform has in establishing the right attitude to learning. Tile Cross Academy believes a school uniform for pupils is important to promote a good, well ordered, working environment.

The uniform items fulfill the criteria for clothing that is suitable, comfortable, affordable, practical and purposeful for an effective learning and teaching setting in a safe and healthy environment.

Uniform gives our children a sense of belonging in the school.


Any parent who has applied successfully to the Yardley Trust will be issued with vouchers in the next few weeks.

Any other uniform voucher queries should be directed to Birmingham City Council. These vouchers are not available from the school.
