At Windmill L.E.A.D. Academy, we believe that wearing a smart and practical uniform allows all children, regardless of their backgrounds, to feel equal to their peers and confident in their appearance. It is important for children to wear clothing that is conducive to a successful learning environment, including activity-appropriate clothing, such as sports attire.

We have made our uniform requirements as simple as possible, so that it is affordable and can be purchased from high street stores and supermarkets.

We have sweatshirts and cardigans with our school logo, that can be purchased from the school office and paid for via the Gateway App. Families that are eligible for Free School Meals can have a free sweatshirt or cardigan every year. However, there is NO expectation that the uniform is purchased from school or that it has to have the logo.

In Year 5 and 6, we provide all children with a school blazer and tie.

We keep a stock of good quality second hand uniform and we are happy to give these to families who need uniform clothing for free. We also gratefully receive any good quality items of uniform parents/carers wish to donate.
