Uniform

At HAPU 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.  At HAPU 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 & 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.

Anyone arriving at school in non-uniform clothing will be expected to collect alternative items to be worn from Student Services upon arrival.  Students found to be wearing inappropriate clothing after the start of the day will have the item(s) confiscated and will receive a detention that afternoon. 

Uniform items are expensive and therefore it is important they are clearly labelled with your son/daughter's name so that any items of lost property can be returned to the rightful owner.  Please note that any items of unclaimed uniform, after the end of the academic year, will be donated to charity.

It is the responsibility of students to arrive to school with the correct footwear at all times.

Where a student is unable to wear appropriate footwear for medical reasons, they will be expected to provide a written request from their parent or carer. Should permission to continue to wear alternative shoes on medical grounds be sought beyond one week, the school requests that a doctor’s note is provided to the Head of House to validate.

For convenience Harris Academy Purley has correct Academy bags for purchase at reception.
