Whilst the uniform has been tightened (not changed) in order to ensure high standards and and to avoid expense for parents, should any family feel that they cannot provide the correct uniform they must contact the relevant Persons at Molehill: The Principal, Mrs L Smith, the Vice Principals, Mr Etheridge and Mrs Jones or the Pupil Support Worker, Mrs Hammond.

- Dark grey (NOT black) trousers (NOT leggings or jeans) or pinafore/ skirt*

Academy uniform includes clothing required for PE lessons. Each Academy has chosen a PE kit that is practical, comfortable and appropriate to the activity involved. Sex and race discrimination issues have also been considered. As with the regular Academy uniform, the governing body has considered the cost to parents when deciding on a policy for PE kit. Pupils must be able to remove their earrings before taking part in PE lessons.

Breaching Uniform policy
If a pupil deliberately breaks the academy rules regarding uniform, a range of sanctions will operate, depending on whether the breach is a first, or recurrent, offence. Pupils should not be made to feel uncomfortable, nor discriminated against, because their parents cannot provide them with the correct uniform.
Pupils not conforming to the uniform policy will be sent home to change. Parents/carers should consult the Pupil Support Worker (P.S.W.), Vice Principal, or Principal, if there is an issue.
