Re-setting Student Uniform for Half-Term 6

Since we have provided the option for students to wear variations of uniform & LCA PE kit, I have been disappointed with the lack of overall professionalism displayed by a high number of students. This has resulted in a clear drop in professional standards of dress & in some cases a knock on effect to general attitude/application. Therefore, I have decided to reduce the options for students across half-term 6. The only options for students is as follows:

Students can wear:

  • Their full uniform
  • Uniform without blazer but with jumper
  • Uniform without purple jumper but with blazer


NB: during hot days I will communicate to staff & students that they will be permitted to remove both their blazer & jumper.
