A school uniform helps promote a sense of belonging and pride towards being a member of Langney Primary Academy.
Uniforms often save parents and carers from wrangles over what to wear with their children. Good quality pullovers, cardigans and fleeces, embroidered with the school logo, are available to buy from our online supplier.
It is very important that all items of clothing have your child’s name on them, please. On external school visits, it is essential that uniform be worn.

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery at Langney Primary Academy. Children with pierced ears can only wear small studs and need to remove them before P.E. lessons.
Inexpensive watches and sports watches (Step counting etc) can be worn but they are brought in at the families risk. If they are used inappropriately in lessons then a discussion with families will be had about whether it will be continued to be worn in school.
Make-up and Hair
Children should not come to school wearing make-up, this includes nail varnish and false nails.
Hair and hairstyles can link to pupils’ cultural heritage and LPA does not discriminate against this.
Long hair should be tied up/back for health and safety. Hair accessories, including bows and headbands should try and follow the school colours. Extreme haircuts are not permitted. Hair should not be dyed away from natural hair colour.
Some religions and beliefs require their members to conform to a specific dress code.
LPA does not discriminate against any religion or belief; however, the school must weigh the needs and rights of individual pupils against the cohesion and health and safety concerns of the entire school community. The school endeavours to allow religious requirements to be met.
Uniform is available to be purchased from our online supplier, Mapac for purchasing uniform items.
