It is ULT’s view that there are many benefits to the whole school/academy community in individual students being required to comply with a uniform policy, including the fostering of a sense of belonging and self-esteem.
It is also the view that a uniform policy has a positive impact on the community’s perception of the school/academy and its members.
Uniform policies also help to counter social prejudices. It is also the view that uniform helps to raise standards and improve attitudes to learning including attendance rates.
At Manchester Academy, a high standard of personal appearance is expected. All students from Year 7 – Year 11 are to wear the same uniform. The only exception to this is the tie which has a colour coded band denoting which ‘House’ the student is a member of.
The Manchester Academy uniform policy gives consideration to the social, economic, ethnic and religious mix within the community and does not require different standards of dress for girls and boys. Manchester Academy uniform has been designed to not require any ethnic variations other than for religious variation.
