Uniform and Equipment

Uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone. 

Our uniform instils pride; supports positive behaviour and discipline; encourages identity with, and support for, school ethos; ensures pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protects children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; nurtures cohesion and promotes good relations between different groups of pupils.

Please note – The Shoreham Academy PE Department is passionate about students enjoying PE lessons. At certain times in the year students will be expected to do PE outside and potentially in cold, wet and windy conditions. It is essential that students are dressed appropriately for these conditions. The Shoreham Academy PE kit optional range allows students to dress for these conditions however non Shoreham Academy tops can be worn as a method of keeping warm but they must be worn underneath a Shoreham Academy top, be navy in colour and should not have zips or hoods. Students must change socks for PE lessons and should wear footwear appropriate for the activity they are doing (guidance on this is given by the PE teachers). We strongly advise that shin-pads are worn for football and hockey lessons and that mouth guards/gum shields are worn for Rugby lessons.

All PE uniform with the Shoreham Academy logo must be purchased from Sussex Uniforms.
