The Gateway Learning Community


It is Gateway Learning Community’s policy that children must wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in school organised events inside normal school hours.

This Uniform Policy is based on the notion that uniform:

  1. promotes a sense of pride in the Academy
  2. is practical, smart, attainable and affordable
  3. identifies the children with their Academy
  4. avoids pressure on children to ‘follow the latest fashion’
  5. helps children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  6. promotes a sense of community and belonging towards the Academy.
