Uniform and equipment

In This Section

Below, we explain what uniform should be worn up to year 4, and how it changes for year 5 and 6 pupils. Please ensure that children always adhere to these uniform rules – it creates a consistent look through the academy, and we know that our pupils love to wear their Tuxford Primary Academy uniform with pride.

Uniform can be ordered from Price and Buckland online.

Hair, jewellery and labels

On health and safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery. However, if it is unavoidable, those with freshly pierced ears may wear one set of plain studs. These must be taken out during PE and should be left at home on these days if your child cannot manage to take them out themselves. Long hair must be tied back at all times.

All clothing should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. This is especially important, as uniform items look similar and can easily be confused for another pupil’s. The academy cannot accept responsibility for any lost items.
