Every Child Achieves

School Uniform

We believe a uniform allows all children, regardless of background, to feel equal to their peers and confident in their appearance. We also believe it is important for activities to be facilitated by specialised and appropriate clothing such as sports-specific attire.

Furthermore, we are committed to promoting equality and value for money, and to ensuring that no child is unfairly discriminated against. There is no expectation that children wear uniform that bears the school logo. A number of alternative options are available to families from suppliers such as supermarkets. 

If you wish to speak to a member of staff regarding our uniform, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Hope, Acting Headteacher, by emailing admin@keeblegatewayacademy.org

In Early Years*, our uniform is:

  • Navy blue School jumpers or cardigans 
  • White or navy blue polo shirts
  • Navy trousers, shorts, skirts, pinafore dress or summer blue ‘gingham’ dress.
  • Sensible black school shoes (no trainers please)
  • Navy, white or black socks, or navy tights 

*Uniform is optional in Nursery.

Jewellery and make up

  • Children should not wear jewellery to school. If your child has pierced ears, ‘studs’ must be worn on school days and these must be removed for PE and swimming. Nail varnish/make up are not allowed.

Preparing your child for learning is a key role for any parent. It is important for your child to feel fully prepared, organised and well equipped for their busy day ahead. Your class teacher will provide you with any additional information but the following equipment is necessary:
