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.  At Harris Academy Purley 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, as well as on the Academy site. 

Anyone arriving at school in non-uniform clothing will be expected to collect alternative items to be worn from Student Services upon arrival, in exchange for an item which will be returned when the borrowed items are brought back.  Students found to be wearing inappropriate clothing after the start of the day will have the item(s) confiscated, and will receive a 30 minute detention on the same day.

  • Harris Academy Purley navy blazer, with gold trim and embroidered badge. The blazer is to be worn at all times. In the classroom the teacher may give permission for it to be removed.
