All children are given a book bag when they start at Quay Academy. If a replacement is needed these can be purchased from the office for £4.00.
The children are encouraged to wear school uniform as it promotes a feeling of identity and pride in the school. The David Ross Education Trust believes that uniforms are important element in nurturing a sense of identity and responsibility. All Trust academies have a uniform which is accessible to all pupils and their families, which represents value for money. The Trust and its academies are committed to supporting families experiencing hardship to ensure that all pupils can comply with their individual academy’s Uniform Procedures. If you would like further information on support please contact the office or speak with your child's teacher.
