All Students

  • White T-shirts worn as vests should not be visible at the neck of the shirt.
  • Hairstyles should be appropriate and colour of hair should look natural.

JEWELLERY/MAKE-UP

  • Students are permitted to wear a watch, one ring only and a SINGLE PAIR of stud earrings in pierced ears (one per ear).  Students may wear discreet make-up.  Nose studs or other forms of body/facial piercing are not acceptable.  Any infringement of the above rules will result in being sent home until the full requirement is met. Nail varnish is not permitted.
  • No jewellery of any type (included pierced earrings even if recently pierced) may be worn in PE or Games. The use of plasters to cover items of jewellery is not acceptable.
  • Belts must be strictly functional – plain black, suitable for trousers only.

HAIR

The policy specifically requires that hair should not be at the extremes of fashion. It should be smart, tidy and of natural colour. This is defined as:

  • “extreme” – not too short, nor too long, a “number 2” is the minimum acceptable in terms of shortness, hair should be groomed;
  • “artwork” on the scalp is regarded as a fashion extreme;
  • “natural colour” – this is taken to indicate colours that are natural in shade and tone.

Care and marking of property

Having provided your child with expensive items of clothing and equipment, please make sure that he/she takes good care of them.
Each item of clothing and property should be clearly and indelibly marked. Unless this is done we cannot help to find lost belongings. Name tapes which are sewn into clothes last longer than adhesive ones.

Make sure that your child realises the importance of thorough searching and quick reporting if any item is lost. Carelessness is responsible for far more loss than dishonesty and sometimes unmarked, quite valuable property (eg a watch), goes unclaimed because no one bothers to ask for it.

Lost Property – all items both named and unnamed, including items of sports kit will be available in the Atrium each Monday and Friday from 09:30 – 14:30. Unclaimed unnamed items of lost property will be disposed of at the end of the summer term or possibly each term if the storage space available is exceeded. The school can accept no responsibility for property lost on school premises.


Materials for Design and Technology

DT Materials are provided by the Academy and paid for by students, who keep their own work.

Food Technology students are asked to contribute the main ingredients from home for practical dishes. These dishes will be taken home on completion.


Money

Students should keep any necessary money with them at all times. Large sums of money should not be brought in except in an emergency, when they should be handed into Student Services for safekeeping. No responsibility can be taken for money left in school bags. Money brought in to pay for an activity should be in a sealed envelope, clearly marked with the student’s name and tutor group and what it is payment for. Such payments should be posted in to the Financial Mailbox, located in the Atrium opposite Student Services.
