The Academy has a uniform policy in order to prevent some young people from feeling pressured to wear brands or items of clothing that they cannot afford. School uniform also helps young people to feel a sense of belonging to E-ACT Royton and Crompton Academy.
Our uniform policy must be followed at all times during the academic year. We are proud of our uniform and we expect students to wear it with pride. As students represent the academy whilst wearing it, it is imperative that all student uphold our high uniform standards. We do not negotiate on our principles and our expectations are clearly outlined as follows:
