School Uniform

School uniform is an essential part of being a member of Phoenix Junior Academy. It symbolises that you belong and are part of the Phoenix family. All students are required to wear the uniform and regular checks are carried out to see that all students are wearing the correct uniform.

  • Purple Jumper/Cardigan
  • White school shirt – both boys and girls
  • Tie (Years 3 & 4 elasticated – Years 5 & 6 normal)
  • Black knee length school skirt
  • Black trousers
  • Black or white socks*
  • Black school shoes

Black school shoes need to be worn all year round for all year groups.

*Socks can have additional lace of no more than 2 cm

Summer (from Term 6 – after May holiday until end of July):

As above but with the addition of:

  • Black school shorts
  • Purple gingham or striped dresses

It is advisable that long hair is tied back. Hair decorations should be small and discrete bows no more than 7 cm.

If your child has pierced ears – 1 pair of plain stud earrings can be worn, however these must be removable for PE, for safety reasons.

PE Kit:

  • Black shorts
  • White T shirt
  • Plimsoles/trainers
  • Dark tracksuit bottoms (for cold weather) & sweatshirt

The kit to be brought in either every Monday, or at the beginning of each term and left.

Pupils in Year 4 will also require swimwear, towel and goggles (optional) as they will be swimming on a weekly basis.

PE is an important part of the school curriculum, just as important as literacy and numeracy as it is a way of keeping healthy and being active. Failure to wear the correct uniform may result in a letter sent home. If a student does not have their PE kit the student will spend the lesson completing work and will complete a lunchtime detention.

School uniform can be purchased in person from School Time, Military Road, Chatham, or via their website

If you wish your child to wear a plain white polo shirt, these can be purchased, along with black trousers/skirts from your local supermarkets /shops, ie: Tesco, Asda, Primark.
