Deadline for Autumn term uniform orders is 7th August 2020. Please click link to IMPORTANT NOTICE from Brigade regarding orders.
Dartford Primary Academy pupils are proud of their academy and as such wear their uniform with pride. We would like to remind you that all pupils are expected to wear the following:
Our branded uniform can be purchased from our school supplier Brigade: www.brigade.uk.com. We also recommend considering high street retailers for the majority of your child’s basic uniform, for value for money.
Please ensure your child’s entire school uniform including coat and shoes are labelled. Whilst we do have lost property collections, we are not responsible for lost items.
Each child should have the following:
Pale blue T-shirt
Navy blue shorts
Navy/black non-branded track suit bottoms may be worn in winter months (children will wear their DPA sweatshirt/cardigan)
Black sports shoes (for use in outdoor games; indoor PE is done barefoot).
It is essential that children store their PE kit in an appropriate PE bag. Please note that the reception classes do not start PE until much later in their first year so PE kit is not necessary until the Summer Term.
We appreciate your support in helping us, prepare your child for their secondary education and the world of work where uniform and dress expectations may be in place.
Pupils are given many high quality opportunities to develop their curiosity and creativity. They are encouraged to use their imagination, for example when thinking of ways to praise a friend, and are taught to respect the feelings and viewpoints of others.Ofsted
Pupils are engaged and motivated by the way teachers present and teach the well-planned curriculum. This not only ensures that good learning takes place but makes a strong contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.Ofsted
Teaching assistants make a strong contribution to the good learning taking place, especially when pupils with special educational needs are taught in small groups outside the classroom. They work in very close partnership with teachers and bring an additional range of helpful skills and experiences into the classrooms.Ofsted
