Students are expected to represent the Immingham Academy while dressed in the uniform both at school and in the wider community. We believe it promotes a sense of pride and belonging.
The overall impression should be that of a well-groomed individual who takes pride in their appearance.
All students are to wear the uniform throughout the day from when they leave home to when they return home. Students will also normally be expected to wear the uniform while on any day trips unless indicated otherwise by the Principal.
Uniform is not a fashion item. It is designed to be both formal and comfortable. It is the parent/carers responsibility to ensure that items purchased are suitable for school and conform to the uniform policy. Any concerns should be relayed to the Academy.
The Principal has the discretion to relax the uniform policy at times of extreme weather and this decision will be communicated to students as they arrive at the Academy. Students should assume that, unless directed otherwise they will wear the usual uniform each day in line with the Uniform Policy.
Students can wear a black or grey plain jumper under their blazer because of the increased classroom ventilation. They can also wear thermal clothing underneath their shirt/trousers but these need to be skin style and no hooded tops are permitted.
When students have PE they need to arrive wearing full kit please and either a plain black or grey jumper.
Academy Grey Check Skirt – Length to be worn to the bottom of the knee or longer to be purchased from Uniform Direct (discount voucher provided).
Mid-Grey Tailored Trousers to Ankle/Top of shoe (for boys and girls) these should be a formal style with either shaped leg, boot-cut or standard fit (tight fitting, cropped/ankle grazer, denim style trousers and leggings are not permissible).
Shorts (Boys Only – Summer Term Only)
Mid-Grey Tailored Shorts, no shorter than 3 inches above the knee. These should be a formal style like in the image below. They can be worn in the summer term only as a replacement for trousers, but should we worn with white/black socks and school shoes. No tight fitting shorts allowed.
Should be smart black (natural or synthetic leather) and worn at all times. No other materials are allowed and they must be black polishable shoes. Students are not permitted to wear trainers, boots or open-toe footwear. Shoes should be of a sensible design and height covering the entire foot. At lunchtime students may wear trainers when taking part in sports, however, these should not be worn inside the main academy building.
Hair should be well-groomed and hair styles should be conventional and of a natural colour. A cut shorter than a grade 2 is unlikely to be acceptable. If you child has long hair they will be expected to tie it back for practical science/technology lessons for safety reasons. We can provide these but you may prefer to provide your child with one.

- he/she will be required to remove the offending item if possible;
- he/she will be given a verbal warning and a date to correct it by;
