The school has a uniform which is proudly worn by the children. Branded uniform items can be purchased from Price and Buckland online at www.pbuniform-online.co.uk/godmanchestercommunity; however, there is no expectation that pupils wear branded uniform.
Our expectation for school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
- Promotes a sense of pride in the school.
- Identifies the children with the school.
- Provides a sense of community and belonging.
- Creates peer equality in terms of appearance.
- Is practical and smart.
- Is designed with health and safety in mind.
Godmanchester Community Academy Uniform Requirements:
- Navy blue sweatshirt, cardigan or fleece.
- Grey or black skirts, trousers, knee-length shorts or pinafores

Jewellery & Makeup
On health and safety grounds, we do not allow children to wear jewellery other than stud earrings and a simple analogue or digital watch (no smart watches permitted), in our school. Children must remove these items during PE and games to prevent them from causing injury. If removal is not possible, children must wear a flat-backed 'stopper'
No makeup or nail varnish should be worn in school.
The school does not permit children to have extreme haircuts that could serve as a distraction to other children and are not in keeping with the ethos of the school.
This includes: inappropriate patterns shaved into the hair and unnaturally dyed/streaked hair.
The definition of an extreme hairstyle is at the discretion of the Co-Headteachers.
All uniform should be clearly named with both first name and last initial.
Lost property will be collected and any named items will be returned to their owners. Un-named items will be stored centrally. Lost property still unclaimed after each half-term will be donated to the school or local charities.
