Uniform

** Price increase on V-neck sweatshirts, Knotting tie's, P.E Hoodie & gum shields **

  Oakfield Academy insists on a school uniform to generate a sense of belonging and purpose. In wearing it our pupils show an acceptance of the need to maintain an order and conformity, to attain high standards whenever and wherever the uniform is worn. Any pupils not arriving at Oakfield in the correct uniform will be given an appropriate alternative to wear. Pupils without the correct equipment will disrupt their own learning and the learning of others.  Sanctions will be imposed on those who repeatedly arrive at lessons without the necessary equipment. All items should be clearly marked with the owner’s name.  We cannot accept responsibility for loss or breakage so please avoid bringing expensive or precious items to Oakfield.   Uniform can be purchased during normal school hours, with the exception of New Parents evening  or Transfer day.  Please click here to download our uniform order form & Price list. Uniform Order Form & price list3819a Compulsory Uniform
