Students are not permitted to wear hats or hoodies in class.
Students are provided with suitable sportswear for P.E. lessons but are required to have their own trainers.

Jewellery

Parents are advised not to permit their child to wear jewellery whilst at school, as it is dangerous during P.E. and similar activities.

YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
