We are aware that many young people with autism have sensory issues which may affect how they cope with new clothing, so our uniform has some flexibility to take account for this. If your child will not wear certain things, please do contact us to discuss how it can be adapted for them.
We would like pupils at The Austen Academy to wear school uniform. It creates a sense of belonging and can also provide a routine for school days that makes it easier to get dressed.
We have sourced a supplier of Fair trade cotton clothing and uniform can be ordered through the links below for all items with a school logo on and also other uniform clothing, but if you prefer you can find your own supplies of school uniform.
