Uniform Requirements

We take pride in each and every one of our students at the Leesbrook, and know that they are equally proud to be wearing their academy badge on their uniforms. Please read this guidance, alongside the Oasis National Uniform Policy - which outlines responsibilities held by the academy, parents/carers and students. You can also access this policy through our Policies page.

Why do we have a uniform?

We recognise the value of having academy uniforms for the following reasons:

  • Inclusion – uniforms promote our belief of inclusion for all
  • A sense of belonging – the uniform promotes a sense of belonging in each student, academy and the Trust
  • Safety – if all the students in our Trust wear a clearly recognisable, correctly branded uniform it is easy to identify strangers in the academy. On the way to and from the academy it also affords a degree of safety as the students are part of a large body of young people who will look out for each other
  • Preparation for the future – many jobs require staff to wear a uniform and even if there isn’t a uniform there is often a dress code. Uniform helps young people get used to dressing to a prescribed standard. It also helps them know the difference between formal and informal dress
  • Value for money – good quality uniform should be seen as effective value for money by most parents / carers
  • Relieves students from fashion ‘stress’ – a localised academy uniform eliminates the stress placed on students to purchase and wear expensive, fashionable items
  • A sense of pride – we all feel proud of our young people when they are well dressed in the uniform. Uniform and PE / Sport kits also help students to demonstrate pride in their academy
  • Helps raise aspirations – the smarter you feel the more you believe you can achieve
