Click on the picture below to read our School Uniform Dress Code leaflet

We believe that a school uniform is important:

  • It looks smart
  • Wears well
  • Contributes to a sense of belonging and community
  • Gives a common purpose
  • Makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • Fosters a feeling of pride
  • Is designed with health and safety in mind

The Raynville Academy uniform is:

white polo shirt
grey or black trousers / skirt / pinafore dress (not jogging bottoms – leggings can be worn under a skirt)
red cardigan / jumper with or without the school logo

summer wear:
white polo shirt
grey or black shorts / trousers
red and white checked dress

No jewellery is to be worn to school (very small studs for children with pierced ears are acceptable). Watches are acceptable at your own risk.

Shoes worn to school need to be without a heel and to have a back to them, e.g. no flip flops. If possible these should be black/ a smart, dark colour.

Children are encouraged to wear hats (named) in hot weather.

Children need a plain white t-shirt & black shorts for PE and a tracksuit for outdoor sessions.

All clothes must be named. We make every effort to help children look after their things but we are not able to accept responsibility for lost property. There is a lost property container in each building. Unclaimed property will be disposed of at the end of each term.
