A smart dress code benefits everyone

The governors, staff and parents at West Alvington Church of England Academy place great emphasis on high standards. Our drive to realising these standards encompasses all aspects of academy life; teaching and learning; relationships; behaviour and dress code, etc. Wearing of the correct academy uniform is essential. The support of parents is very important in this. It is very important that all clothing is clearly labelled.

Our uniform is supplied via Price and Buckland and can be purchased online:


  • Blue academy sweatshirt with logo – available online
  • Red polo shirt
  • Grey or black trousers/skirt
  • Sensible, dark shoes (not trainers)
  • In the summer tailored shorts and summer dresses (check or stripe) are desirable.

We would also prefer long hair to be tied back. This curbs the spread of head lice and is a safety requirement in PE.

PE kit (This is to be kept in school and available at all times in a PE bag)

  • White PE T-shirt with logo (optional) – available online
  • RE PE top
  • Fitted black or navy shorts
  • Trainers
  • If your child feels the cold it may be an idea to include leggings or fitted tracksuit bottoms for outdoor activities.
