Uniform and Equipment
The purpose of the uniform is to identify students with each other and as members of Kirk Hallam Community Academy. It is associated with the high standards of work, conduct and dress we set for each of the students. We encourage students to take pride in themselves and the academy, respect each other and achieve well and the uniform is an outward sign of this.
With this in mind, we need to be very clear in our expectations of our uniform.

If your child is unable to do PE for any medical reason, or has the incorrect kit, a note must be provided, explaining the problem.
Jewellery of any kind must be removed before PE lessons start.
The main changes are no hoodies at all, clear guidance on the types of trousers and skirts and a reminder of plain tights with skirts.
Please bear this in mind when you buy uniform ready for the new Academic year.
