City of Peterborough Academy Special School


Our School Uniform
Uniform is important to us because it means that our pupils develop a sense of belonging. We do understand that for some of our pupils with sensory needs, it is difficult for them to wear our 'regulation' uniform and so we are happy for them to wear plain polo shirts without the embroidered logo.

Jewellery is not allowed.  Rings, nose studs or other facial jewellery, nail varnish and make up are not allowed.  Ear-rings may be worn but only one stud in each ear, in the lower part of the ear lobe and must be removed or covered up with blue plaster for PE and technology classes.  Excessive hair styles are strongly discouraged and all pupils with long hair must have it tied back whilst on the school site.  

For 2018/19 our uniform is changing.  The current ‘purple’ uniform can still be worn during this year.  We are going through rebranding and this may take some time, but we will keep you updated along the way.  The new uniform is detailed below, ALL pupils will receive a free pack of two polo shirts, two sweatshirts, a PE Kit and a PE bag, also a book bag or messenger bag.  The current school uniform can still be worn for the 2018/19 academic year.

Preferably, shoes must be black, sensible ones for school use.  Variations may be permitted upon discussion with a Senior Leader.
