Correct uniform must be worn to and from Plympton Academy as well as on the Academy site. Extremes of fashion are unacceptable and item may be confiscated.

The uniform should be smart and with all items clearly marked. If a student is unable to wear an item of the Academy uniform for any reason, the Academy must be notified in writing by a parent or guardian.

'New All -Weather Academy Top'

Due to the ongoing COVID restrictions and in order for us to provide our students with the best learning environment possible, the Academy asks that each student has an all-weather top for the start of the new academic year in September.  In light of this additional piece of uniform being needed, the Academy will subsidise the cost of this item if it is purchased ahead of September 2020.  The all weather top will be available to order from supplier KitWorld via a weblink which will be made live on this page towards the end of this week at a cost of £10.  

Students who are in receipt of pupil premium funding will receive this top free of charge and will be issued with a voucher via email by 20th July which they can use to purchase the item. Parents/carers will still need to order the top from the supplier using the weblink provided.

As all students will be wearing these weatherproof tops we have arranged with the supplier to have student initials added to individual tops within the quoted price, you will be asked for this detail at the point of purchase and we would urge all parents/carers to ensure their child's top is identifiable using this method as it should reduce the likelihood of tops going missing within the school.
