Pilgrim Academy has a uniform policy. This includes:
Jeans, sportswear or leggings are not allowed. During the warmer weather girls may wear green checked dresses.
For outdoor P.E., children are required to bring:
Sweatshirts and cardigans are available to purchase from Uniforms Direct.
Children are advised to wear a cap during the summer months to protect them from the sun during break times.
With the ever-changing fashions in footwear, some parents have asked for guidance regarding which shoes are acceptable as part of the school uniform. Therefore, to help parents when choosing shoes for school, we have selected some images as examples of shoes for girls and boys that are acceptable and are available locally. Please note, that material/canvas shoes, in any design are not suitable. We hope that this information will help parents when choosing appropriate uniform.
If you are unsure, please do not hesitate to contact the main office at the Academy who will be able to give you advice.
Hairstyles which are extreme are not permitted at Pilgrim Academy.
This includes: No vivid or two-tone hair colours; no cuts shorter than a number 1 razor setting; no patterns cut into hair; no beaded braids or braids with cotton/material weaves; no extensions which do not match natural hair colour. For girls, a normal plain hair-slide, clip or "bobble" is acceptable, but the multitude of hair ornaments favoured by some girls is not. No bandanas or scarves are to be worn in the hair. Any hairstyles that have a change in hair length must be blended. Hairstyles must be graduated with no 'stepped' patterns or lines. Mohican hairstyles are not acceptable. This includes stepped haircuts similar to the different styles of Mohican haircuts.
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our Academy. The exceptions to this rule are earring studs in pierced ears (one stud per ear) and wrist watches. These items of jewellery must be removed for P.E. activities.
