Darton Academy Uniform

At Darton Academy, we aim to achieve standards of excellence in all areas of school life including appearance. We believe, when worn correctly, the uniform represents the standards that the school expects to achieve. It says to the local and wider community that Darton Academy is a high achieving school whose students understand the difference between the expectations of the world of work and how they dress for their social life out of school. We also feel very strongly that it represents equality for all students.

Wearing smart uniform, including P.E. kits, is an important factor in encouraging a disciplined, positive ethos at Darton Academy. It is the policy of the school, therefore, that students should wear school uniform as outlined below; please note that fashion items are not permitted. Students are expected to be dressed correctly on their journey to and from school, as well as in school. Parents’/Carers’ support in this matter is expected and appreciated.
