Alternately, if you do not have access to the internet you can make an appointment with Mrs O’Reilly in the school office to use a school computer for your order. There are no minimum order quantities and your uniform order will be delivered either to the academy (free of charge, monthly) or direct to your home address (for an additional fee, according to the weight of the parcel). Other ordering information including sizes, delivery information and the returns procedure will be available online. 

As a result of parent feedback we will continue to stock academy ties in school; these can be paid for on Arbor and collected from the office. Please be reminded that ties are a compulsory item for all KS2 children. 

Our uniform policy is as follows:

Aims and objectives

It is our policy that all children should wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school event outside school hours. A complete list of the items needed for school uniform can be found below.

Our policy is based on the notion that a school uniform:

promotes a sense of pride in the school

encourages a feeling of community and belonging

is practical and smart

identifies the children with the school

is not distracting in class

has been ethically manufactured

does not act as a barrier to parents when choosing a school

will meet the needs of individual pupils to accommodate their religion, ethnicity, disability or other special consideration

Clothing & Footwear

Black fine knit v-neck jumper with or without school logo

Official Leighton Academy tie (optional for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2)

Black pleated skirt, tunic or tailored trousers.  Shorts may be worn in warm weather

White shirt or blouse, short or long sleeved

Black tights, black or white socks

Children are expected to wear sensible, black, school shoes.  Trainers must only be worn for PE lessons as they are sportswear items.  Boots may be worn to school in cold weather but should be removed when children enter school and replaced with school shoes.

PE Kit

Children can come to school on PE days wearing their PE kit. For PE all children must wear a plain white t-shirt, plain black shorts or plain black tracksuit bottoms and a plain black jumper or sports jacket and trainers. Children are expected to wear the required kit as it is part of the school uniform.


On health and safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery in school.  The only exception being plain earring studs in pierced ears – these must be covered or removed during PE lessons.


The school strongly discourages children from having haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children.  Children with long hair should have it tied back for PE lessons for health and safety reasons.  Hair bands and clips should be in school colours which are black, white and blue.


We ask all parents and carers for their support of the school uniform policy. Parents should ensure that their child is in the correct school uniform and that it is clean and in good repair.  If any parent feels there is a good reason why their child should wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, for example due to a religious objection or a disability, please bring this to the attention of the head teacher.  In extremely hot weather, ties may be removed at the head teacher’s discretion.

If a child does not wear the correct school uniform, a verbal or written (see letter in policies file) reminder of our expectations will be communicated to the parent/carers and children will be given the correct items to wear during the school day. We expect parents to support this.
