Uniform

Uniform is a great way of showing that we are all in this together and proud of our Academy identity.

We encourage students to take pride in themselves and their appearance at all times. Our uniform prepares students for the world of work; is practical and smart and helps our students develop a sense of belonging in our academy community.

Ethos
All children at Co-op Academy Woodslee wear their school uniform with pride. It contributes to a sense of belonging and teamwork. Therefore when your child joins Co-op Academy Woodslee, we are all in a shared agreement that :

It is the responsibility of children, parents and carers to ensure that the correct Woodslee uniform is worn at all times;

It is the responsibility of Co-op Academy Woodslee staff to promote high expectations with the school uniform.
