Uniform

The highest standards of presentation are required at all times from the children attending Gosberton Academy. Children must wear correct school uniform and no extremes of haircuts or styles are permitted.

This includes ‘engraved’ designs, mullets and skin head. On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our Academy. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs in pierced ears (one stud per ear) and wrist watches. These items of jewellery must be removed for PE activities. In opting to send your child to Gosberton you are agreeing to abide by the School Uniform and Appearance policy. All items of school uniform – including shoes and plimsolls- should be clearly named to avoid loss or confusion.

We believe that a school uniform promotes a sense of belonging to and pride in one’s school. Therefore, it is expected that all children wear the Gosberton Academy uniform to school on normal school days. At the moment, children are to come to school in their PE kit on days when they have their PE sessions – parents will be informed of their child’s PE day when necessary.

Safety

Children with pierced ears must only wear close fitting, stud type earrings, but we would prefer that no earrings be worn at all, for safety reasons. Please note that staff are not permitted to remove children’s earrings. No other jewellery, apart from watches, should be worn.
