The Arbours Primary Academy

We have over 390 children and we are continually improving and developing what we offer our pupils in our drive to become one of the best primaries in the area.

Uniform

We have a school uniform and the expectation is that children will wear it with pride and show respect towards it at all times.

Pupils will be taught to tuck their shirt in at all times and wear it with pride both in and out of the Academy.

All items can be bought from The Schoolwear Shop on Abington Square, Northampton.

The David Ross Education Trust (the Trust) believes that uniforms are an 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 and 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. 

The school has navy blue as its main uniform colour for cardigans and jumpers.  Uniform is available from The Schoolwear Shop on Abington Square, Northampton
