At Ark Bentworth Primary Academy we firmly believe that a uniform fosters a feeling of belonging and encourages children to take pride in themselves and their school.
All pupils must dress according to our Uniform Policy, which reflects our values and reinforces our school’s culture of high expectations and academic achievement.
Our school uniform is important to us because it is one way in which we identify ourselves as a school family and it promotes a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life.

Purchasing school uniform
The items with an asterix are available to buy from the School Office and can be purchased on Wisepay. Our uniform has been kept simple to avoid unnecessary expense; non-branded items can be bought from regular high street retailers.
A second hand uniform stall is held half-termly at the school - this is messaged to parents via email. Parents are welcome to donate any unneeded uniform via the school office.
If you require any second hand uniform, please reach out via the school office who are able to support.
We ask that all clothing is named, including shoes, so that lost items can be returned to their owner. The school cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage of pupils’ property and valuables. All mislaid items are placed in the lost property box located in the school office. Please ask the school office if you wish to look through this box. We endeavour to return all named property, but give unclaimed lost property to a local children’s charity at the end of term.
