Uniform

Oasis Academy Ryelands requires all pupils to wear uniform without exception. A uniform helps to give identification to a school, and can make less obvious the different financial circumstances of families.  It is also protection against the temptations of temporary extremes of fashion. We are grateful to parents/carers for their full support in seeing that high standards are maintained in the wearing of uniform and tidiness/cleanliness.

We expect all parents/carers to ensure their child dresses according to the uniform list. Parents/carers will be contacted if any pupil fails to attend in appropriate uniform. The Academy will maintain a small stock of clean, spare uniform for children to wear. We ask all parents/carers to ensure uniform is named.

School uniform can be ordered online by visiting Hewitts of Croydon's website here.

Second Hand Uniform

The school keeps a stock of second hand uniform. Please contact the Office for further information.

(Since we have a new uniform, our stock of uniform is rather limited at present. We would very much welcome donations of good-quality second hand uniform.)

Pupil Premium

This is additional funding which is linked directly to pupils who are on or have received Free School Meals in the last six years. We have allocated Pupil Premium funds to a wide range of supporting activities in school. This funding will be used to purchase branded Oasis Academy Ryelands uniform. Applications are limited to one per academic year.

Please contact Mr Lillo in confidence (office@oasisryelands.org)

You will be asked to complete an application form, where you will be asked for proof of financial information.

A panel consisting of the Principal, Chair of the Academy Council and the BSM will meet once a half term to consider any applications.

This process will be reviewed annually by the Academy Council.

Help from charities

Some charities give grants to parents to help with the costs of education. These charities often have a very limited amount of money to give and usually have very specific criteria which must be met in order to get a grant. Although the criteria vary widely, some common examples could be that parents live in a particular area.

You can either approach charities personally or approach the school for help. Some charities do not support applications from individuals, but the school may able to access funds.

Barclaycard Horizons Children’s Fund

If you are a lone parent, you may be able to get money from the Barclaycard Horizons Children’s Fund to help with the cost of school uniforms, school trips and day trips. To see if you qualify for help, contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau, Social Worker or Health Visitor. They can apply on your behalf to the Family Welfare Association (FWA) which is running the fund.

You may be able to get information about local charities and help with applying, at a Citizens Advice Bureau.
