Part 2 Personal Appearance standards

We believe that high standards of personal appearance are key to supporting the academy mission ‘Outstanding in all we do’.  To maintain these high standards we expect students to adhere to the following guidelines:

Nail Varnish & Jewellery - neither should be worn to the Academy.  Nails should be natural and not painted. 

Wrist Watch - we encourage students to wear a watch as mobile phones should be switched off and stored in school bags at all times. Further details on this can be found in the mobile phone policy.

Make-up - should not be worn to the Academy. This includes fake tan, false eyelashes and false eyebrows.

Hair Styles - should be practical, clean and suitable for a working environment. Guidance for hair designs that do not fit the academy requirements are:

  • Dyed hair
  • Hair that covers a student’s eyes
  • Shaved hair less than a grade 2
  • Lines shaved into hair
  • Extreme designs such as Mohawks

Students with long hair will be expected to tie their hair back in practical subjects for their own health and safety 

Outdoor wear - coats, hats etc should not be worn inside the building.

Schools bags - should be brought to the Academy every day and should be able to accommodate A4 files.  Bags should be plain in colouring and design, not display images that go against our core values.

Badges - only Badges supplied by the academy can be worn on the Academy blazer.

 

Part 3: Supporting students with the uniform and personal appearance standards

The Academy has a stock of clean uniform items, including shoes.  If students arrive to the Academy with incorrect uniform or personal appearance they will be directed to student services and supplied with any necessary items to ensure they are wearing the correct uniform and meeting personal appearance standards.  Failure to comply with our uniform and standards guidelines will result in escalation through the Academy behaviour management process.

Students who arrive to school wearing makeup and/or jewellery will be asked to remove these. Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in escalation through the behaviour management process. 

We thank parents and guardians for their support in ensuring their child complies with our uniform and personal appearance guidelines.
