We have high expectations of our students when it comes to their personal appearance and I’m pleased to say that the vast majority are very smartly dressed and wear their uniform with pride.
It is thanks to the support of our parents and carers that standards remain high and this is something regularly commented on by our visitors.
This letter is to remind our students and their family of the academy dress code and what is and is not allowed. We know that sometimes, parents and carers are not clear and I hope this clarifies matters. If you are in any doubt, please do not hesitate to contact the academy and we will be happy to assist.
If a student’s appearance does not meet the expected standard, the academy reserves the right to apply sanctions in line with our behaviour policy. Where appropriate, a student who is not wearing the correct uniform will be asked to wear a replacement item provided by the school until the end of that day.
Jewellery, make up and hair styles also form part of our dress code. Students are permitted to wear one pair of small earrings and a watch. Other jewellery, including nose rings and other body piercings are not permitted and students will be asked to remove them. Subtle makeup and natural hair styles are permitted but extreme styles and unnatural colours are not.
Thank you for your continued support and I wish you all a safe and enjoyable half term break.
Mrs Colette Macklin
