Uniform

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.
