We pride ourselves on high standards of dress in school and ask for the co-operation of students and parents in maintaining these. A high standard of dress impacts on the working ethos of the school and how the wider community views our students. It is the expectation of this school that students attend dressed smartly, safely and that appropriately. Students wear the correct items of uniform in the correct manner. The Principal’s decision on the way all items of clothing should be worn is final.

PE Kit

Following student voice and a review of our PE uniform we have made several changes to the PE kit. Students tell us they are really proud to represent the Academy and we want to provide a uniform that reflects this and enables a consistent and smart approach to PE lessons. It is important to clarify that the expectation is that students attend PE in their full Weavers PE kit and not in their own jumpers, branded track-suits, t-shirts or hoodies as this will breach the student uniform list from September 2023.   

Year 6 new students will require for the start of the new school year (September 2023)

Grip Active Black Tracksuit including Grip Active T-Shirt and Shorts (Bundle 1)


Grip Active Weavers Academy Rainshell Jacket

Grip Active Weavers Academy Snood

Current students will require

Grip Active Full Black Weavers Academy Tracksuit (Bundle 1)


Grip Active Full Black Training Kit.

Grip Active Weavers Academy Rainshell Jacket

Grip Active Weavers Academy Snood

Please follow the link Weavers Academy (gripactive.com) to purchase the new school PE kit.

The following kit is available to purchase now and will take roughly 3-4 weeks to dispatch however the kit is essential for September 2023 for all students.

Please see below for the size charts for both the Adult and Youth Bundles.

If you have any questions regarding the new PE kit please contact Mr S Emary, Stefan.Emary@weaversacademy.org.uk

Weavers Equipment List

A pencil case with the following essential items:

  • Blue or black pen
  • Red pen
  • Green pen
  • Pencil
  • Ruler 
  • Mini whiteboard and whiteboard pen
  • Calculator (ideally a Casio FX-83GTX-S, but any scientific calculator is sufficient)

Additional equipment can be purchased from the student office. Please note compasses will be provided by the maths team when required.

Some students also find the following items useful and like to bring these with them too:

  • Glue
  • Coloured pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Protractor 
  • Round ended scissors
  • Highlighters 

Other kit and equipment

  • A large enough bag with capacity to fit A4 books, folders, pencil case and other equipment
  • Sports bag on PE days may also be required. (May be brought in a second bag if school bag not large enough)
  • In extremely hot weather, a cap or sun hat may be worn outside in hot weather. The school decides what is ‘extreme’.

Hair, make-up and jewellery

Hair and make-up: All hair must be natural colour. No shaved patterns. Hairstyles should not be extreme. Parents should consult, in advance, with their child’s Raising Standard Leader if they are unsure as to the suitability of a change of style. The school decides what is ‘extreme’.

  • Long hair to be tied back in PE, DT and science.
  • Hair products should be avoided due to safety issued around flames in science, DT etc.
  • Students will be given 24 hours to change inappropriately coloured hair.
  • Hair extensions must be the wearer’s natural hair colour.
  • Make-up must be ‘subtle’. School defines what ‘subtle’ is and students will be asked to remove excess.
  • No nail extensions: these prevent students from effectively participating in activities and poses a risk to students’ safety.
  • Only clear varnish—no colours allowed.


  • Two 5mm studs – one per ear
  • No facial piercings, no hoops, no multiple studs, no tongue studs, no spacers
  • No necklaces, bracelets or rings
  • No wrist bands
  • Hair bands must be on hair or in pockets, not around wrists
  • Students may wear a watch but no other jewellery is permitted due to health and safety and liability in case of loss

If students wish to have any part of their body pierced they must arrange this at the beginning of the summer holiday so that the wound has sufficient time to heal. Plasters may not be worn to cover body jewellery or facial piercings. If students disregard this, students may be placed in isolation during social time for infringement of uniform rules that cannot be rectified by sending the student home to change.

Students not in the correct uniform

Students will be placed in reset for infringement of uniform rules that cannot be rectified by sending the student home to change or by the school providing a loan of appropriate items.

Special consideration will be given to parents if they wish their child to wear different items for religious, cultural or health reasons. Applications need to be made in writing to the school governing body.

Parents can apply in writing to the Principal/Governors for financial support. Such cases will be treated with due sensitivity and in confidence.
