Uniform

At Harris Academy Purley we have high expectations of all, in everything we do. This includes personal appearance. Uniform plays an important role in establishing the ethos of our school. We believe that our uniform policy benefits the school in a number of ways:

  • it encourages identification with the school and nurtures the notion of community
  • it protects students from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • it supports discipline and good behaviour and ensures the health and safety of students
  • it instils a sense of pride in the school 
  • it promotes more effective teaching and learning

Full cooperation with our dress code enables staff to concentrate their time and effort on teaching and learning. The decision about what is and is not acceptable will always remain with the school. Students are expected to adhere to the uniform rules on the journey to and from school, as well as on the Academy site.
