We strongly believe that school uniform gives our students a sense of identity and of belonging to the academy. It helps to ensure that no student feels disadvantaged in terms of appearance, removes the need to keep up with constantly changing and expensive fashion trends, and instils a sense of pride.
When we became an academy on 1st June 2014, we changed our name. This needs to be reflected in the school uniform and therefore changes will be implemented slowly. The only change is the blazer, due to the logo, and the PE kit, again due to the logo.
New Year 7s wear the new school uniform, with the new Fowey River Academy logo embroidered on the pocket. The rest of the school will have a year to change to new school uniform, allowing for the fact that students will likely grow out of their current blazer. This means the new blazer should be worn by everyone at school from September 2015. All school uniform is available from Cornwall Screen Print & Embroidery and the PE kit is available from A Game Sports.
We are aware that this is a change some parents and carers may wish to discuss, so if you have any questions, please contact the school on the usual number 01726 833484.
Ordering Your Uniform
All students must have the following items from our uniform supplier, Cornwall Screen Print & Embroidery. These can be purchased online at www.cornwallscreenprint.com
PE Kits can be ordered through Agame Sports
*only available from our uniform supplier Cornwall Screen Print & Embroidery
PE kit: Compulsory
No jewellery is to be worn in PE lessons. If a student is unable to participate in PE, he/she should still bring PE kit as students will still be expected to take a non-active role within the lesson.
We understand that it is not always possible for students to wear the full, correct uniform. Please contact your child’s form tutor to discuss any problems which you may have. If students come to school without the correct uniform, the school will provide temporary uniform and contact parents if necessary so that students remain in classes as much as possible. Temporary uniform can include plimsolls, ties and PE kit.
If any student refuses to wear the correct uniform, this may be dealt with as a disciplinary matter.
