The benefits of academy ties
Your academy is the pride and joy of your local community. Are you looking for ways to make your academy an even better school? You might be surprised at how many benefits our custom ties could have for your students, featuring your own school design and colour scheme. Keep reading to find out more.
Create higher uniform standards
A school uniform is an essential way to create a safer environment, as this prevents students from wearing clothes that might be unsafe or unsuitable for the school environment. Loose clothing with dangling accessories can create safety hazards in learning environments.
An academy tie takes this one step further, as it draws together the uniform and keeps students from wearing their shirts open with t-shirts underneath or similar, promoting higher standards, and preventing students from wearing potentially offensive outfits.
Encourage more focused study
Some clothing options can be distracting for students, and a uniform can keep the school environment calmer and more productive. A tie has a profound effect on students in many cases, creating a more professional and formal feeling, and encouraging focus. It allows them to make a mental switch from being at home in their casual clothes to being at school and needing to pay attention – this is a similar mental switch that we make as adults when wearing formal work clothing.
Build a stronger community
Even small variations in school uniforms can create discrepancies between students that causes fragmented social groups to form. While a tie cannot completely prevent this, it can create more of a level playing field between students. Social, financial and physical differences are less profound when all students are dressed similarly, and academy ties with school colours and designs can encourage a stronger sense of belonging throughout the student body. This can be especially beneficial for secondary school students, but it can also create easier connections between primary aged students, too.
Promote your school
One of the benefits of academy ties that you might not think about is how a strong uniform can create a better appearance in your wider local community. Residents and prospective parents will recognise something as small as the colours on a tie and associate them with your school colours. If your students are well dressed and well behaved, this will create a fantastic image for your academy, boosting awareness and encouraging communication and potentially more students enrolling.
Your academy may be in an area with many other schools – so you can stand out more successfully with custom ties.
Support better behaviour
No one expects academy students to be perfectly behaved at all times, but they can encourage more positive behaviour. Again, the higher uniform standards can provide a more focused environment, they can also create better behaviour outside of the school. This also adds to the promotional element of your school uniform, as a tie with certain colours can be highly recognisable, leading students to be aware that they will be associated with their school, curbing negative behaviour when they are wearing their academy clothes.
